Hi. I've been looking everywhere for information, but have found mixed results.
Is the Phenom 9700 been released yet? I am building a new PC, and have been looking to buy a Phenom. But, I have read that there are issues with the current Phenoms (9500 and 9600), which affects performance. So, I am waiting for the 9700, where the problem is supposed to be sorted.
On the AMD website, I can select the "AMD Phenom 9700" as a processor to view information about. BUT, I have read elsewhere that the production of the 9700 upwards has been halted due to an issue which is to be corrected.
Also, no retailers seem to stock the 9700 yet - either in the US, or here, in the UK.
SO, if the 9700 hasn't been released yet, I might pick up a 5000+ Black edition instead to tide me over until it is...
OK, I have been reading through the forums, and have found that there are already reviews and benchmarks for the 9900. If there are already samples out-there, surely it can't be long until the release of that CPU?
