AMD Triple-Core CPUs to Launch in Feb. '08

We now have a launch date, or at least launch month, for AMD's triple-core CPUs, which they announced in September.

AMD recently notified its partners that it plans to launch two triple-core CPUs (Toliman) in February next year while two dual-core CPUs (Kuma) will appear by the end of the second quarter, according to sources at motherboard makers.

The triple-core 7700 and 7600 will have core frequencies of 2.5GHz and 2.3GHz, respectively, and a TDP of 89W. frequencies for the dual-core 6250 and 6050 have not yet been set, but the CPUs will have a TDP of 65W, the sources revealed.

Pricing: still unknown, and it's pricing that will tell if these can compete with Intel's offerings.
