A 4mb L3 cache increase is kinda big for just a refresh. Kari a b à CPUs April 30, 2008 10:35:52 AM If I understood it correctly the 2 mb cache on the current phenoms is 'too small' because of size/power/heat problems, they wanted to make it bigger but couldn't. The 45 nm version is more like it should have been from the day one.

Good luck AMD mr roboto May 3, 2008 6:44:44 PM I really,really hope AMD comes out with something great. No more mediocre products. bushmastertd May 23, 2008 10:11:59 AM ok dumb queastion, but these will still be AM2/AM2+ spcket right? Or are they comin out with a new socket type? idisarmu December 3, 2008 7:32:40 PM I thought that the 45nm amd's would be AM3 socket... They should be compatible with AM2+ but then as usual with a phenom AM2+ on an AM2 board- you don't get to full Hypertransport speeds available when the phenom is on its desired platform. I hope I wasn't too confusing. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumBetter CPU and desktop for my needs? Intel i5 or AMD? HP or Dell?
