This tip just made it into my mail box... Newegg is selling an OEM Athlon X2 6000+ processor that runs at 3.0 GHz, the same speed as the top Athlon FX processors using the 1207-pin Socket F. It is still a 90nm processor, but should be damn fast.
Intel Demos 45nm Up an Running

The new E4300 is essentially an E6300 without Intel's Virtualization Technology, and a slightly slower clock speed ... 1.8 GHz versus 1.86. However, with a reasonably efficient air cooler it can reach 3.47GHz, which is pretty reasonable for a $130 dollar processor. The bad news right now is that the only places you will find it for sale have it priced about $10 less than the E6300, so it isn't worth buying ...

Legit Reviews invested the significant amount of money it takes to build a QuadFX system, and overclocked it as far as they could. At 3.1GHz the system leveled out, so that is the speed the used in comparative benchmarks with the QX6700. Even though the performance did increase, can it possibly reduce the performance gap, especially when you consider the $200 difference in CPU price as well as the motherboard.

We got the news during CES that the 45nm shrink of Core 2 Duo, code named Penryn, was already up and running, and booting Windows XP on its first revision of silicon. Well tonight I have news that the Penryn processors have in fact been able to boot Windows Vista, Linux and Apple Max OS-X as well! Getting a brand new processor spin on a brand new process technology (first 45nm from Intel) running this stable so early paints a good picture on Intel's future into 2007 as Intel is probably going to b

Although 2.4 GHz is slower than the 6700, the reduced cost and power consumption make this processor more attractive to a broader range of people. There isn't a lot of information about the performance of the processor yet, but The Tech Report tells you everything known so far.

The guys at Tech Report noticed that even though the Quad FX parts are available for sale now, they aren't the prices AMD quoted to everyone last month.
Of course, we should point out that neither AMD nor Asus have control over retail prices. Still, at those prices, someone looking to build a machine with a pair of Athlon 64 FX-74 chips will have to pay with a premium of either $129 or $181, depending on the retailer.
