  1. Fudzilla reports that AMD is preparing to offload two speedier dual and quad-core processors, one being Regor-based while the other is Propus-based.

  2. Pretty sure the Athlon II doesn't have any L3 cache. Perhaps you're getting things mixed up between the Athlon II X2 which has 1MB of L2 cache per core and the Athlon II X4 which has 512KB of L2 cache per core.

    The Athlon II is revamped or bin reject Phenom I architecture that has bad, fused, or disabled L3 cache. perhaps this enabled L3 is a selling point for the new Athlon II's

    Thanks for pointing that out. We've corrected the article.
     
  5. "Although these are only minor improvements on existing products,
    Very minor improvements indeed, not really worth the effort.
    AMD is preparing a larger rollout toward the end of this year and into 2011 which will include the long awaited CPU/GPU Fusion chips."
    So whats the go with this, will it be bulldozer "toward the end of this year" or fusion?
