AMD Phenom Model Numbers

AMD will be launching Phenom processors in the September/October time frame and there will be several coming out then and in the following months, here is a good list of what we will be seeing.

Phenom X4 GP-7100 – 2.2 to 2.4GHz – 3600MHz HyperTransport 3.0 – 89 Watts
Phenom GP-7000 – 2.0 to 2.2GHz – 3200MHz HyperTransport 3.0 – 89 Watts

Phenom X2 GP-6650 – 202 to 2.6GHz – 3600 HyperTransport 3.0 – 65 Watts
Phenom X2 GP-6800 – 2.4 to 2.8GHz – 4000MHz HyperTransport 3.0 – 89 Watts

The processors sound pretty good but I have an interesting theory of how AMD could turn things around. Intel was capable of putting out a Quad-Core processor very quickly because they slapped two Dual-core processors on a single chip. AMD could do it similarly with Quad-Core processors allowing them to have an 8-core processor in a single socket or a 16-core processor in a dual-socket motherboard. This of course would only swing things AMD’s way and Intel could easily do the same with 8-core processors but none the less AMD could use this to their advantage and be to market with a 16-core computer faster then Intel.
