    Anyone know when the Athlon II X4 is coming out??

    I heard some noise about it a while back but nothing recently. Since there are supposed to be 45w models coming out which would be ideal for a mini-ITX based build. If ATI and Nvidia can get their GPU assisted encoding software to work better on IGPs it would be great as it would mean a small, lightweight and more importantly cheap box to do some light encoding with.

    It seems nobody knows ATM!! These were supposed to launch yonks ago! I suspect AMD may launch them when the Core i3 and Core i5 are launched. It would be nice if a sub £80 quad core was launched though!!

    Late Q4 2009 / early Q1 2010 apparently, I read it the other day, can't think where now. I'll see if I can find it

    Thanks for that info but it seems a tad late TBH!! AMD should be aiming in the next month or two as the Core i3 is being released for under £100 soon!! A bevy of cheap Athlon II X3 and X3 processors together with the Phenom II X3, the Phenom II X2 and Athlon II X2 would keep AMD competitive at this price level especially since they can use DDR2 also.

    Re: Anyone know when the Athlon II X4 is coming out??

    There already seem to be some listings for a 2.8ghz Athlon II X4 630 for around £90:

    http://www.techstore-online.co.uk/In...p?ref=84342624

    http://www.morecomputers.com/extra.asp?pn=adx630wfgibox

    According to this article the Athlon II X4 630 is being released on the 23rd of August:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/dis...in_August.html

    Supposedly some early benchmarks using DDR2:

    http://xtreview.com/addcomment-id-82...enchmarks.html

    In SuperPi the single threaded performance of the X4 630 looks slightly better than an X2 7750+ which is not too bad. At around £90 the Phenom II X3 720 does look better though.

    Thanks for the info, I did know they had 65w energy efficient models for Phenom II X3 and X4, but this is the first I heard about 45w Athlon IIs. Great news.
