The so called AMD Zambezi -the AMD 9 series chipsets- have a release date for the second trimester of 2010 with great news. The first are these 8 native cores that will come with high range models and whose performance will be just like many others Core i/ (930 and 950) but at a lower cost.
These forthcoming AMD desktop processors will use the AM3+ socket. The new Zambezi doesn’t support AM3 boards, but you will be able to mount current AM3 processors into AM3+ boards.
There will be two Sothbridges: the SB920 and the SB950, the difference between both will be the SB950’ RAID 5 support, and, of course, the higher price. Both versions support six SATA 6Gbps ports. Its TDP is set in 6w.
