X-bit Labs claims that AMD's upcoming Phenom processors will have a power consumption of 45W:
AMD will offer three at least three models of dual-core AMD Phenom X2 processors with 45W thermal design power, sources close to AMD indicated. The new AMD Phenom X2 chips based on the new micro-architecture from the chipmaker will not have high TDP, though, they are projected to offer performance levels inline or higher with today’s dual-core AMD Athlon 64 X2 products with decreased power consumption.

The new dual-core AMD Phenom X2 processors with 45W power consumption are AMD Phenom X2 GE-6600 (2.3GHz, 512KB L2 per core, 2MB shared L3), GE-6500 (2.1GHz, 512KB L2 per core, 2MB shared L3) and GE-6400 (1.9GHz, 512KB L2 per core, 2MB shared L3). All of the chips are scheduled for introduction in Q1 2008, according to sources. The company is also expected to release AMD Phenom X2 GS-6650 (2.2 – 2.6GHz, 512KB L2 per core, 2MB shared L3) and AMD Phenom X2 GS-6550 (2.0 – 2.4GHz, 512KB L2 per core, 2MB shared L3) with 65W TDP in early Q1 2008 and late Q4 2008, respectively. There will also be AMD Phenom X2 GP-6800 microprocessor with up to 2.80GHz clock-speed and 89W thermal spec in the first quarter of next year.
