The Inquirer hear AMD slated the Socket AM2 launch for Tuesday, June 6th:
As of Tuesday, June the 6th, you will be able to buy these CPUs in the stores. AMD plans to reveal the CPUs at Computex, the Taipei based show. DDR 2 memory should boost the Athlon's performance but we still wonder why AMD didn't wait a while and adopt the upcoming DDR3. Some memory manufacturers think that now is the right moment to move from DDR one to DDR 2 as the cost is almost the same, and with DDR 2 667 or DDR 2 800 you can really see the performance difference.
