Default AMD set to release low-cost six-core Phenom IIs

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/04...ix_core_parts/

Quote:
AMD is poised to release its new six-core enthusiast-level processors at prices far below competing Intel parts, and Asustek, Gigabyte, and MSI are busily readying motherboards in anticipation of the launch.

So say "sources from motherboard makers" speaking with the Taiwanese market-watchers at DigiTimes.

The interesting info is that they will feature 'Turbo Mode' which will increase speed by 500MHz when only 3 or less cores are in use.

Another good thing is that new 4-core 'Zusma' CPUs will be possible to unlock them to 6-cores
