"with both adopting 6 MB L3 Cache" means total L2 + L3 cache of 6mb or L3 cache increase from 2mb to 6 MB. A 4mb L3 cache increase is kinda big for just a refresh.

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.

Be interesting to see how well these overclock :)  Maybe AMD could introduce some more power-saving refinements as well.

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.
