From AMD Zone: 

AMD has been on somewhat of an upswing as of late with such successes as the 780G and a renewed ATI now at last competitive with Nvidia if not able to overtake their performance lead. In regards to Phenom though the "errata" that was found out shortly after it's launch has left a black eye on the CPU for some time that is until now with the launch of the new "B3" revisions of the processor in their Phenom 9x50 revisions of their processor.

Today we're looking at the Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition processor from AMD specifically. That's right again we're seeing a few name modifications from AMD. The "X" is back designating the number of cores as Phenom now is released in a triple core version officially as well. Currently these are OEM only versions and not for the channel, the X3 Phenom 8600 and 8400 at 2.3 and 2.1GHz. They should be around $175 to $150 in thousand unit prices. They also are the "B2" revision of the processors and do not have the TLB fix already applied, which shouldn't be as much a problem for OEMs than end users.  AMD does plan to launch triple core "B3" revisions of Phenom but not to the channel just yet but shouldn't be too far off due sometime in the next month. Today these B3 revision Phenoms are launching in with the Phenom 9550, 9650, 9750, and 9850 Black Edition. The high-end 9850 is the only B3 Black Edition at this party and only available as a Black Edition. Luckily pricing also isn't too far from the current "B2" Phenoms with the 9550 due for $195 and the highest-end 9850 Black Edition for $235.
