AMD Athlon 64 5000+ and FX-62 at Computex

AMD is preparing the launch of two new desktop processors at Computex 2006. Both the dual-core Athlon 64 5000+ and the Athlon 64 FX 62 will be launched on June 6th, The Inquirer reports.
It seems that both 5000+ and FX62 come as socket AM 2 only things. We suspect that we are talking about a speed update of both cores and we expect that the 5000+ could end up at 2.6GHz while the FX 62 will rock at 2.8 GHz.

Both CPUs will have dual core under the hood. We cannot confirm the frequencies at this time but there is a possibility that AMD won't change the clocks, and that it will count DDR 2 as the speed update. We are not sure yet, but this has happened before
