AMD to Launch New High-end Desktop Processor

AMD is preparing to launch a new high-end desktop processor, the Athlon 64 X2 6400+, which will be the last processor in the Athlon 64 X2 family. Currently, AMD's highest-end desktop processor is the Athlon 64 X2 6000+, however with its performance unable to match Intel's upcoming Core 2 Duo E6850, AMD plans to launch the new 6400+ to cover up the gap in the market. The 6400+ will have a core frequency of 3.2GHz and 2MB L2 cache, while the pricing will range between US$220-248. Samples of the new CPUs are already shipping to motherboard makers, but there's still no official release date.

That 6400+ outperforms E6600!
I think its good that AMD is going to launch this one, but that is all they can get out of there K8 arch.

Would this one come with a new stepping (F4) or is that still F3?

Anyone know when these 6000+ with 89W tdp come into the shops?

Im still surprised they can still pull great things out of the K8 architecture.
