AMD Releases DDR3-based Phenom Processors
AMD this morning has announced five new Phenom II processors. What is special about these processors, however, is that they use the Socket AM3 and they support DDR3 system memory rather than the DDR2 memory type they had long been using. There are Phenom II X3 and Phenom II X4 processors that now support DDR3 memory. Of course, with these new AM3 processors from AMD you will need a new supportive motherboard. Sadly, however, we have none of these new Phenom II processors from Linux so we are unable to tell you anything about their Linux support -- no performance figures or even if they work at all. Hopefully the troubles aren't there like when the Phenom was first introduced on Linux.
