Fudzilla is littered with information today on upcomming AMD products.

AMD plans on launching both the Athlon X2 7850 and Phenom II X4 955 on April 23, which is one week away. The Athlon X2 7850 will be a 65nm 2.8GHz dual core with 2x512KB L2 cache and a 2MB L3 cache. To top it off, it will also be a Black Edition chip which overclockers should thoroughly enjoy.

The Phenom II X4 955 processor will clock in at 3.2GHz and it will also be a Black Edition chip. It should be available for around US$300 at launch.

AMD also has the Athlon X2 Regor based chip scheduled for launch in June this year. The 45nm part will have a 65W TDP, much lower than the current 65nm Athlon X2's. The good news is that AMD might just be able to get this chip to 3GHz and maybe a little bit more.
