AMD to launch 65nm Athlon 64 X2 5200+

Posted on Thursday, June 21 2007 @ 02:26:44 CEST by

X-bit Labs reports AMD will launch a 65nm Brisbane processor next month, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+. This processor will be clocked at 2.7GHz.
The closest 65nm dual-core AMD processor with similar features that is available at this time is working at 2.6GHz. It is Athlon 64 X2 5000+ with 64W maximum TDP. Pushing the clock speed 100MHz up is not a significant breakthrough progress, but for the Brisbane core that was accused of starting its career at a very low speed, it is nevertheless an important milestone. Note that a lot of Brisbane processors are now capable of overclocking to 2.8GHz with the nominal Vcore that is why it may strike you as a bit surprising that AMD has been holding off the launch of faster 65nm 64 X2 CPUs for a while.

June is almost over, but there is still only one Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (2.6GHz) processor model in AMD’s official price list on the 90nm core with 2 x 1MB L2 cache. All 65nm Brisbane processors are known to feature 2 x 512KB L2 cache that is why a CPU like that should work at 2.7GHz frequency to get rated as 5200+.
