AMD to release cheaper dual-core processor in Q3

Posted on Wednesday, July 12 2006 @ 00:55:20 CEST by


AMD wants to release the dual-core Athlon 64 X2 3600+ in the third quarter of this year:
In order to maintain its market share on the desktop market AMD needs to offer customers higher-performance processors as well as affordable offerings, but while cranking up the clock-speed may not be easy, release of a lower-end chip is certainly a straightforward decision: many people would like to have a popular AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor with two processing engines, but few can now afford it now, when the slowest X2 chip costs $303 in 1000-unit quantities.

AMD plans to accelerate the release of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ processor and start to sell it in the Q3 2006, not in the fourth quarter as originally reported, a news-story by HKEPC web-site claims. The new AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor will run at 2.00GHz and will contain 512KB of level-two (L2) cache (256KB per core), while being made for the AM2 form-factor and supporting dual-channel DDR2 memory.
More info about these processors at X-bit Labs.
