They won't be socket 939, socket 939 is pretty much dead, they don't manufacture those sockets anymore. The majority of the Phenom cores will be compatible with AM2, some will be using a newer socket though I think.

Ugh, whatever. I've had enough of AMD's poor launch choices. Intel is usually true to their word and they launch when they say they will.

Penryn isn't just a core shrink. Intel is also incorporating other features into the Core Microarchitecture.

I've always stuck with intel to be honest and like to see them doing well for a chance since AMD were on top for several generations
