A new 3GHz Phenom II X3: the 740
AMD will soon launch a new Phenom II X3: the 740.

This processor is clocked at 3 GHz and has 512 KB of L2 cache per core along with 6 MB of L3 cache shared amongst the 3 cores. It uses the Heka (tri-core) architecture, which is a Deneb quad-core die with one core disabled (will it be possible to reactivate some series' spare cores ?). We do not know the exact price or release date though we know it is expected in the third quarter of 2009.

However, we can get an idea of its eventual price range with the X3 720 clocked at 2.8 GHz which is sold for about 90€ in mainland Europe, £90 in the UK and $120 in the United States.
