A leaked AMD roadmap confirms that quad-core Phenom processors based on the Deneb core are due to be released on 8 January 2009.
The roadmap leaked to Spanish site ChileHardware shows the chips will be revealed under embargo in December, and although currently unnamed, are set to run at 2.8GHz and 3.0GHz respectively, both sucking up 125W in the process.
The document also reveals the chip-makers plans for the remainder of the year, including the release of the Brisbane based Athlon X2 0550e and the Toliman Phenom X3 8850 processors on 8 October. These are set to run at 2.6GHz at 45W and 2.5GHz at 95W respectively.
November is touted to see the launch of the Lima based Athlon 2650w at 1.6Ghz for a miniscule 15W and the Brisbane based Athlon X2 3250e at 1.5GHz for 22W of power draw.
As well as the blanketed Phenom X4 details, December is expected to see the launch of the aforementioned Phenom 8850 but now unlocked.
