AMD to simplify CPU naming scheme

Posted on Friday, May 04 2007 @ 11:20 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD will soon make a few adjustments to the way it names its processors. The new names will be a bit shorter than the current ""Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 45W 1MB L2 Brisbane".

The first processors that will be renamed are the dual-core Brisbane processors:
  • AMD BE-2400: 45W Brisbane, 2.3 GHz
  • AMD BE-2350: 45W Brisbane, 2.1 GHz
  • AMD BE-2300: 45W Brisbane, 1.9 GHz
  • The low-end Sempron chips will get the same treatment:
  • AMD LE-1300: 45W Sparta, 2.3 GHz
  • AMD LE-1250: 45W Sparta, 2.2 GHz
  • AMD LE-1200: 45W Sparta, 2.1 GHz
  • AMD LE-1150: 45W Sparta, 2.0 GHz
  • AMD LE-1100: 45W Sparta, 1.9 GHz
  • It's expected that the upcoming AMD Agena, Kuma and Rana processors will receive similar names.
