AMD starts shipping 3-core Phenom

2008 will be the year of the triple core CPU. AMD started to ship the Phenom chips in various configurations.

As said before, this is a great way for AMD to differentiate itself, but the prices are not expected to go down immediately. Either because AMD does not want to shoot itself in the foot or because the quantities will not be huge for a few more weeks.

Let’s wait for the next price war between Intel and AMD, remembering that most games do not take advantage of more than 2 cores.
