UPDATE: Bit-tech.net has a review with a bunch of benchmarks up for the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ you can read it here.

AMD released a new flagship Athlon 64 X2 6000+ which is being sold in bulk for $464. The new chip is the fastest processor that AMD has released.

This is the last processor that AMD plans to release under its 90nm Windsor core. AMD will be switching to 65nm for its upcoming processors.

Although this processor is a bit late, it looks like AMD may be back on track, it is about up to speed with Intels processors of the same price. With this AMD may be able to come a little bit closer when they release the 65nm versions.
