i have AMD based computers since year 2000.i curently have athlon ii x4 631.amazing cpu.variety is good,but not to much.if say athlon were given 2 mb or 4mb l3 would be amazing.think on how many variants it would replace.instead of a forrest of processors,you would have distinct few for each socket type.liano is derived from phenom make it better.think of how much procesors it would replace,not just office pc,but home pc,enthusiast pc.dont give up on quadcore.better design and l2 an l3 cashes makes all the diference.sometimes less IS more.

An Athlon with L3 cache...That would be called a FX series processor.
