AMD did release some details about their next major core change (the K8L) but it won't come until they move to 65nm, which will be by end of this year (makes sense I suppose).
Memory speeds are forever fluctuating, but given that both chip companies are now focused on DDR2, expect those prices to fall to below-DDR levels, as demand ramps up

You must have used the Retail HSF when testing - what do you think of it?
