AMD has launched some new processors today but all of them are energy-efficient models that have a TDP of 45W.
Some of these processors will help system builders and OEMs to exceed new system requirements of the EPA's ENERGY STAR Version 4 computer specification.
Enhancements to the AMD Athlon X2 dual-core processor are said to improve multi-tasking performance for energy-efficient systems. In addition, many of the Athlon and Sempron single-core processors provide multiple performance and price points to meet diverse consumer requirements. The energy-efficient processors can help reduce the amount of energy PCs consume, thereby decreasing associated cooling requirements and the overall cost of its operation, said AMD.
Price and specifications:
AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 (2.3GHz/45W) priced at $104
AMD Athlon LE-1620 (2.4GHz/45W) priced at $53
AMD Athlon LE-1600 (2.2GHz/45W) priced at $47
AMD Sempron LE-1250 (2.2GHz/45W) priced at $53
AMD Sempron LE-1200 (2.1GHz/45W) priced at $48
AMD Sempron LE-1100 (1.9GHz/45W) priced at $37
