  1. Only a few days ago rumors surfaced that AMD's 890GX and 880G chipsets would debut on March 1 and April 26. Now, word has trickled from Sunnyvale that the company's six-core Thuban processor will be showcased at CeBIT 2010 (March 2 to 6) and corresponding with the aforesaid 880G launch, OCWorkbench claims Thuban will also be released on April 26. Previous speculation suggested Thuban would appear in May.

  2. They sound hot and it's great being able to buy and place them on existing am2+ motherboards with a bios update ofcourse;-). I'll be buying one next year maybe for my M3A79-t deluxe motherboard(when there will be updated versions i geuss) or in 2012 with an AM3 motherboard using 890fx+850sb chipset. Really looking forward to it :-D.

    I'll wait for the second and third revisions, or an APU. Things are getting fun again :)

    I do not expect to see any third revision. Next year there is planned a totally new design (with probably a new socket) to replace this.
