AMDZone has posted our tests of the low power Socket AM2 Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and X2 4600+.

Back in late May when AMD released Socket AM2 with the flagship FX62 it also released a number of CPUs from budget Semprons, as well as low power variants. Today we have in our possession two such CPUs. The Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 65 watt part, and the Athlon Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 35 watt part. These CPUs bring you dual core power with out as large a power bill. Certainly those who are energy conscience, and those looking for good overclockers should have their interest peaked. Today we will look at each CPUs power consumption, and their overclocking chops before we follow up with performance figures.

Check it out over at AMDZone.
