Hi there,

I was wondering what the latest processor is for desktop computers? Is is still the Phenom 9950 Black Edition? Also...the new 'Shangai' chips; are they just for servers or workstations?

Thanks for any help in advanced!

Rumor has it that they'll be available late this month. <keeps fingers crossed>

I'm glad I got my 9850 when I did. Since then the price have risen about 20% because of the dollar has gone up so incredibly much in a short time.

I don't want to think what the prices of the new CPU's will be...

I think it'll work with AM2+/AM3.
I'd rather use AM3 for it DDR3 support!
