AMD unveils new low-power CPUs for nettops, UVCs and all-in-one PCs

Posted on Wednesday, January 07 2009 @ 17:15:43 CET by

DigiTimes reports AMD has unveiled the Athlon 2540e and Athlon MV-20, both are low-power chips designed for nettops, all-in-one PCs and utra-small form factor PCs, which are also called Ultra-Value Clients (UVCs).

The total platform uses 27W, which is the same as a nettop based on the Intel Atom 230. However, this is mainly because Intel's 945G chipset uses a lot more power. The Athlon 2650e and Athlon MV-20 have a TDP of 15W - which is three times as much as the Atom 230. AMD makes up for this by providing the RS690M + SB600 and RS740 + SB700, these chipsets use just 12W compared to the 22W consumed by the Intel 945G.
The CPUs are the Athlon 2650e (1.6GHz/ 512KB L2 Cache/ 15W TDP) and Athlon X2 3250e (1.5GHz/1MB L2 Cache/ 22W TDP) the latter of which is priced around US$40-50 in thousand-unit tray quantities, compared to US$43 for the Atom 330 and US$29 for the single-core Atom 230, according to sources at PC OEMs.

In addition to the socket AM2+ desktop lineup, AMD also plans to offer socket S1 versions to target the notebook market, indicated the sources.
