The Tech Report has encountered some success in tracking down specs on the new native quad-core chips from AMD. They boil down the translated source page very well, but you may still want to click to the original to see the translated comments.
"AMD demonstrated its "Barcelona" native quad-core processor last week, and now the folks at HKEPC say they've
managed to lay their hands on a roadmap that details the company's upcoming quad-core Opteron lineup. The site
says upcoming Socket F quad-core Opterons will be split into three categories: low-power Opteron HE models
clocked at 1.9GHz and 2.0GHz with a 68W power rating; vanilla Opteron models clocked at 2.1GHz, 2.2GHz, and
2.3GHz with a 95W TDP; and high-power models running at 2.4GHz and 2.5GHz with a 120W TDP. All chips will have
2MB of shared L3 cache, 512KB of L2 cache per core, and support for DDR2-667 memory."
