AMD Phenom II 950 3.1GHz to come in Q2



3.0GHz 945 AM3 delayed to Q2

We've confirmed the plans for introduction 3.1GHz Phenom II 950 and this CPU is going to use the new AM3 socket. This finally brings DDR3 memory to the AMD platform, but at the same time it also means that 3GHz AM3 based Phenom 945 is delayed for almost a whole quarter.

I'd have released slower clocked parts and EOL'd the PI's quickly so they fade into memory along with the Apple Lisa, split keyboards, Cyrix CPU's, and one button mouse.

Lets add diasy wheel printers because those things drove me nuts.

They should have been consistent with the model numbers and kept AM3 models xx5 - this should be the 955....

I don't know about that. They have already EOL'd the 9x00 series, and the 9750/9850/9950 series is actually very good, comparable enough to the Q6600. They have already dropped to the $150 range, and hardware requirements haven't really gone up tremendously over the past couple of years. There aren't a lot of applications out there that make use of all 4 cores yet, so it still has some future-proofing capacity. You could pick one of these up and not need an upgrade for 3-4 years, which is pretty good for the price.

I saw one of these clocked to 4.6 on air!

But did it boot up and run more than 5 iterations of anything?
