Yeah I remember reading something like that as well, and also that "orochi" was supposed to be a completely different architechture (non-phenom2). So I'm guessing that a 6-core phenom 2 will have a good chance of fitting in an am2+ board with the right vrm's.
If they can manage to pump out a 3.4ghz quad @ 125w tdp, they can certainly engineer a hex-core with decent clocks and 125-140w tdp.
My System Specs
Intel Core i3-530 @3.8ghz
2x2gb Corsair DDR3-1600 cas9
ASUS GTX 560 Ti
Kingston V+ series 256gb SSD Seagate 1.5TB 7200rpm 3.5"
Silverstone 300w SFX, 80+ Bronze certified
Silverstone Sugo sg05
Samsung external Slim optical drive
Dynex 32" LCD-HDTV 1920x1080
