    AMD Phenom Dual-Core "Kuma" is listed

    It is very surprise that AMD's Phenom Dual-Core-Processor is suddenly listed. In an european Price Search, you find since one day the products AMD Phenom X2 GE-6600 (2.3 GHz), 6500 (2.1 GHz) and 6400 (1.9 GHz) - together with the final specs.
    The processors have got two cores, built in 65 nm, 2x 512 KiB L2-Cache, 2 MiB L3-Cache and a nice TDP of 45 W. However, no online-shop has got one of these products - so the price remains an unknown.

    no 45nm? Boo
    these dual core phenoms are overdue and won't make any significant difference over current x2s

    Guess most of us will just sit back and wait for real life results then making aimless predictions.

    I think this chip doesnt make sense. Downscaled server design with slow and small cache... Yes, let us wait for real life benchez.. but even in terms of performance/tdp i believe that intels 6MB of 13-cycle shared L2 will trounce this 3 level design, no matter the associativity or ALU muscle.

    Can't google this exactly right now, you may be right, but point is that L3 has much higher latency than L2.
