A few days ago I had a conference call with AMD about their new Dragon initiative and how the Phenom II processor is a big part of it. Specs were kept secret but it looks like the secret might be out now because the one of the parts in the Phenom II line is showing up for sale. Computers4Sure is selling the AMD Phenom II X4 940 processor for $304. Specs are a Quad-Core AM2+ socket CPU running at 3GHz built on a 45nm process.L2 cache consists of 4x512KB and then there's 6MB of L3 cache on the CPU.We'll see if this stays up but for now there's one of the new processors for AMD.

Thanks Engadget.
