“After the launch of its 45nm AM2+ Phenom II X4 900 series CPUs on January 8 next year, AMD is expected to introduce six 45nm AM3 CPUs in February: the quad-core Phenom II X4 925 and 910 with 6MB L3 Cache, the quad-core Phenom II X4 810 and 805 with 4MB L3 Cache, and the triple-core Phenom II X3 720 and 710 with 6MB L3 Cache, according to sources at motherboard makers.
In April next year, AMD will launch 45nm CPUs under its Athlon brand, which does not include the L3 Cache feature. The company will launch the quad-core Athlon X4 600 family and triple-core Athlon X3 400 family, the sources said.
The 45nm dual-core Athlon X2 200 family will be launched in June next year, added the sources.”

Thanks to DigiTimes, Phenom fans will know when to plan their shopping trips. January 8th is the first big date, then February follows with six processors. The semi-lobotomized quad and triple core Athlons, missing the L3 cache won’t be around until the spring and the dual cores won’t appear until June.
