AMD Quad-Cores

Just found this one on
core. Beginning in Q3’2007 AMD is expected to release its first Stars quad-core processors. The new quad-core processors are based on AMD’s Agena and Agena FX cores. Targeting AMD’s 4x4 platform is the Agena FXAgena FX will only be available on Socket 1207+ and offer dual processor functionality. The vanilla Agena core will be available on single processor socket AM
2+ platforms.

As a pretty die-hard AMD supporter, I still find it hard to believe that these first quad-core processors will be all the way until Q3 2007, what with quad-core Xeons about to come out, Quad-Core Core2 CPUs already shipping, etc. What's with the wait?
