The official name of the forthcoming AMD Thuban processors, that have 6 cores, seems to have been confirmed if you go by a table available on the Xtremesytems forum and subsequently confirmed by AnandTech. Three models planned for the second half of the year:
- AMD Phenom II X6 1075T (125W)
- AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (125 and 95W)
- AMD Phenom II X6 1035T (95W)
Samples will be available in March and mass production should begin in April. Unfortunately we don’t have information on clocks or prices yet. In addition, in the second half of the year, AMD is also likely to launch the AMD Phenom II X4 960T which is based on the “Zosma” core. We don’t yet know what differences there are with the Deneb but it may in fact be a Thuban with two cores disactivated… and therefore possible to reactivate in some cases!
AMD is moreover planning to increase the clocks on the Athlon II X4s in the course of the months to come, while, strangely, no Thuban 975 is mentioned, the 955 95W appearing instead, against 125W for the current version.
