Default AMD delays Phenom 2.4 GHz due to TLB errata

This problem was found during speed-binning the B2 revision processors, and this was the cause for the Phenom FX 3.0 GHz delay. It turns out that some CPUs running at 2.4 GHz or above in some benchmarking combinations, while all four cores are running at 100% load, can cause a system freeze.

According to sources close to the company, 2.4, 2.6, 2.8, 3.0 and faster parts will appear on the market when the B3 revision comes to life. B3 revision is key CPU stepping for AMD's future, since it is considered a speed-bin of B1 and B2. With this errata fixed, Phenoms will have no problems competing against Intel in clock-per-clock action, but it will bring serious disappointment to AMD fanboys and market itself. They are probably blubbing already.

When it rains, it pours at AMD... hope they have flood insurance.

I guess overclocking users had better avoid B2 revision chips altogether.
