    What other C3 Processors are AMD releasing?

    Now I know AMD have released the 965 X4 C3 (but not in New Zealand yet ) and my local store has received a shipment of 955 X4 in C3 steppings.

    What other processors are AMD releasing in C3? Are we expecting X2 and X3 variants? Because the 550 and 720 are becoming quite scarce, is that a sign of new processors?

    And a nice clocking cheap C3 X3 would be lovely for AMD fan on a budget like myself .

    I was thinking this same question today. A C3 720BE would be awesome. Or even a C3 740 BE. However, I think AMD may fear too much competition for its quads if it offers to strong of a tricore CPU.

    AMD's whole CPU line should eventually go C3 afaik. But will take a while untill all C2's are eol, so they'll be around as well for some time.

    No. There was a 125W 945 initially then the 95W 945 came out later. They're both C2 though. There is a C3 945 though which also has 95W TDP.

    Interesting. Hopefully we'll see more C3 releases in the near future.
