3.3GHz Calisto Phenom II comes in Q3 2010

Written by Fuad Abazovic
phenomii

Made of Deneb
You remember Calisto core, which is actually a Deneb quad core with two cores disabled. Since AMD didn’t really have many different cores it had to improvise and with 7MB of total cache Calisto definitely looked like a good dual core CPU.

The currently fastest Calisto based dual core is Phenom II X2 555 running at 3.2GHz with 80W TDP and Q3 2010 should see the arrival of the new Calisto clocked 100MHz faster at 3.3GHz. The name is also quite predictable, AMD will brand this new CPU Phenom II X2 560 and it will retain the 80W TDP.

The CPU has 1MB of L2 cache, 2x512KB per each core and a total of 6MB L3, the same amount as Deneb quad core. Calisto is quite fast and it should ship under €100 when available.

Well, this is still not enough to beat i3 530, unless you're lucky and unlocked Phenom's core(s) is/are stable.

and after that, in Q4, there will be a 3.4 Ghz version: The suspense is unbearable ;-) It will be the best AMD deal in 2010, for those who can unlock all 4 cores.

Actually GF's process was yielding that good that AMD didn't had enough chips to make tris and duals out of under-performing quads. But now that the process got a bit older, they can launch the accumulated scraps. It's good business and why waste silicon when a lot of people consider it good value.
