     The 21 versions of the desktop K10

    Even if AMD hasn't apparently chosen the names of the processors of the "Stars" family which will all be declinations of the core K10 (also known as K8L), the composition of the product lines, frequencies, cache size, number of cores and most of the TDP are already known according to DailyTech. They will support the Socket AM2 and AM2+, except for some of the Phenom FXd designed for dual processors platform which will use the socket 1207+.

    The high end models are all named Phenom and will have 2MB of L3 cache. The most eagerly awaited are probably the Phenom X4s (quad core). Clocked at 2.2 and 2.4 GHz, their TDP is set at 89 Watts and they are scheduled to be released during the third quarter 2007. Three models of standard Phenom X2 (dual core) are scheduled for the next quarter and we noted the presence of a version clocked at 2.8GHz which will probably be faster than the Phenom X4 with poorly or non multithreaded applications. Three Low Power versions will also be released. They will single out thanks to the TDP of 45 watts but also with a frequency equals or below 2.3GHz. They will be out during the first quarter 2008.

    At the same period, there will also be another Athlon 64 X2 clocked at 2.2GHz. This one won't have L3 cache and this explains why AMD kept that name. Finally, the Sempron name will be maintained for entry level products and will be synonymous with single core processors.

    The HyperTransport bus speed will vary depending on the models and will be from 2.8 to 4.2 times faster than the current Athlon 64 X2. However, as the impact of the reduction of the speed on the current generation is inexistent, we believe than the impact on the performances will be close to zero.

    Now, there are two things left to check: the performances provided and of course the prices!
