Specifications of AMD’s First Tri-Core Processors
The announcement of the release of AMD triple-core processors along with IDF in San Francisco was perhaps the most notable event in the computer industry in September.
Then there were not so many details about such CPUs. It is known that they have the codename Toliman and will be obtained by disabling one of the cores of the quad-core 65nm Agena.
Now VR-Zone writes that such processors will be released in the first quarter of next year, more precisely in March.
Two models will initially be available:
- Phenom 7700: 2.5 GHz, 3 x 512 L2 cache, 2 MB L3 cache, Socket AM2, TDP 89 W
- Phenom 7600: 2.3 GHz, 3 x 512 L2 cache, 2 MB L3 cache, Socket AM2, TDP 89 W
These processors will support DDR2-800 memory, HyperTransport 3 bus.0.
In the first half of 2021, a triple-core Heka is expected to be released, already produced using a 45-nm process technology. Little is known about them, it is only reported that they will be released in the Socket AM3 form factor.
