Just in case you missed it, the official line and some interesting marketing blitz here:

- quite reassuring if you plan on going the 939 route now; well, atleast until DDR2 comes along !!!

AMD provided other interesting news on their dual core processors, including that all currently available socket 939 motherboards that have the ability to support the Athlon 64 FX-55 processor will support dual core Athlon 64s; all that is required is a BIOS update. All the dual core processors will be manufacturered on the 90nm process and will have a maximum power usage of 110w, only 6w higher than the current Athlon 64 FX processors. Because of that, even the current heatsinks that are in circulation for the Athlon 64 processors should be efficient enough for the dual core processors.
