AMD rolls out Phenom X3 8850, Athlon X2 5050e and low-power Athlons

Posted on Tuesday, October 21 2008 @ 22:58:40 CEST by

Guru3D reports about a couple of new processors from AMD:
AMD Phenom™ X3 8850 (2.5GHz/95W) - [TRAY OPN# HD8850WCJ3BGH] - This new processor is designed to support AM2+ platforms, and will come with a 2.5GHz core speed. Other technical details include a TDP level of 95W and 2MB of L3 cache. The Phenom X3 8850 will become the first triple-core Phenom processor to be part of the company's Black Edition series. The X3 8850 will obviously have an unlocked multiplier for overclocking enthusiasts.

AMD Athlon™ X2 5050e (2.6GHz/45W) - [TRAY OPN# ADH5050IAA5DO] - In the Athlon series AMD launches a very cute 45 Watt TPD (highest peak wattage) processor called the 5050e. This little puppy will be clocked at 2600 MHz.

There's more to expect from AMD though. Two low-power chips are the 1.6GHz Athlon 2650, single-core with a draw of just 15W, and the dual-core Athlon X2 3250e, running at 1.5GHz and requiring up to 22W. November will also see “AMD Ultra-Value Client (UVC) Solutions”, not for general retail but for OEM customers, which it’s theorized are Atom-rivalling Geode chips for netbooks.
