COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 ASUS has given the sign that AMD are planning to get around the clockspeed limitations of existing Phenom parts by simply making them more power hungry.

In an official announcement by ASUS a short time ago, they have stated that no less than ten of their Socket AM2+ motherboards are equipped to handle an upcoming new breed of Phenom processors with 140W thermal envelopes, which is 15W higher than the existing 2.5GHz Phenom 9850 Black Edition.
