The new revision that a few sources referred as B1 shouldn't have any TDP problems and it can work up to 2.8 if not higher to meet the standard TDP numbers.
The main problem now is to get enough of these chips out on the market and even if AMD launches Barcelona in Q3 we are talking about a few chips in late September. Realistically this chip is Q4.
