ixbt Labs-AMD Athlon II X4 645, AMD Phenom II X4 970, AMD Phenom II X6 1075T
Let's start from the bottom. The Athlon II X4 645 is probably the most predictable addition. As you remember, this series consists of quad-core models which differ from the Phenom II X4 by having no L3 cache. Such processors have compact cores and can be decently overclocked at keeping heat dissipation at moderate levels. As the process technology matures it traditionally yields new models, each adding 100MHz to the previous maximum clock rate. So chances are we'll also see the Athlon II X4 650 3.2GHz and the Athlon II X4 655 3.3GHz. But that might be it, because a new core shall have been readied by that time.eTeknix-AMD Radeon HD 6850 CrossFire Video Review
