Wondering if anyone has any info about when this cpu will drop. Looking forward to unlocking a cheap hexa core and pushing it as fast as I can.

Hope they aren't actually defective then :whistle:

All I could find is that apparently they have been pushed back to Q3 this year.

That sucks dude. Id heard early Q2 but was hoping it would drop before that. I want Bulldozer already.

mcnuggetofdeath: Thuban is not bulldozer. bulldozer is due in 2011.

zipzoomfly: That's the 6 core. And not everyone has lots of money. Your budget is not the same as everyone else's. If it were, there would be no such thing as the Athlon II.

....what part didn't you get?

I didn't say there was any part I didn't get. I said that not everyone has lots of money like you. I'm assuming the op knows that unlocking is not guaranteed and does not want to spend $210. I know I wouldn't want to spend $210.

I heard a few things here and there about x5s, but nothing beyond fan rumours. What have you heard?

There is going to be no "cheap" X4 to unlock to a X6, personally it wouldn't surprise me to see the 960T priced above the Phenom II X4 955, and possibly just as high as the Phenom II 965. Considering there is still a slower sub $200 X6 coming out, I'd just buy an X6 if I wanted 6 cores instead of hoping to get 6 working cores from an X4.

Another thing is that I doubt many 960T will unlock into working 6 core processors. AMD already has a strong native X4 market, they won't need to disable working X6 processors to meet sales demand on X4 products. There is also a higher chance of a core being defective on a native X6 than a native X4. With those 2 things to consider, I don't see AMD handing out a bunch of X6 processors at X4 prices.

I know Thuban isn't bulldozer, but I think it would be fun to play around with until it drops.
