Phenom II launch – but when?

phenom_2_10a

I want to get a Phenom II AMD CPU. Rumors say it will be available in early January (the 8th as some sources mention) but that seems to be either a silent launch or an announcement date. Maybe this will be just a launch of the 125W AM2+ model for upgraders? Not sure… I want to get a new mainboard and memory for it so I guess for me it makes to most sense to wait for the DDR3 mainboards (that are not available yet) but on the other hand I don’t want to wait so long. Humm… 😀 the German PC Games Hardware guys seem to have a test-CPU already. In the January issue they published some useful information (like AM2+ mainboard compatiblity) but no benchmarks yet, I hope they will publish some nice benchmarks February.
