German tech website Hardware-Infos claims to have discovered specs for AMD's dual-core "Kuma" Phenom X2 processors on a pricing website.

Following AMD's denial back in June that these processors had been axed we can be fairly confident that these are en route and that's it more a matter of when rather than if they become available. Here's the spec listed:

  • Phenom X2 GE-6600 - 2.3GHz
  • Phenom X2 GE-6500 - 2.1GHz
  • Phenom X2 GE-6400 - 1.9GHz

Each of these parts are based on 65nm architecture, have 2x 512 KB L2 cache, 2MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 45W.

After a little bit of digging around I've found placeholders for these CPUs elsewhere on the web (ignore the pricing info on the links I've listed there).

How well these parts compare to Intel offerings comes down to price and performance.

  • I really want to see AMD compete but...

    I have this feeling that by the time they get a 65nm processor to market Intel will make another leap ahead and AMD will go back to being the economy choice. I really hope I'm wrong.

    I also think its a shame that they are letting the Atom get ahead in the mobile computing field. That whole ATI deal was probably a move in the wrong direction, although it may pay off later who knows how relevant AMD will be then.

    If it is better than what they make now they need to do something. I also think duel cores are on the way out. They are way behind the curve.
