AMD adds some low-power Athlon chips

Posted on Thursday, September 23 2010 @ 15:43:55 CEST by


FUD Zilla noticed AMD also released a couple of new 25W to 45W TDP chips in its Athlon II lineup this week:
The dual-core Athlon II X2 270u is the most impressive of the lot, as it has a 25W TDP, which is less than many mobile CPUs. Of course, AMD had to cut some corners to achieve such a low TDP, so the 270u is clocked at just 2GHz, but it’s still a very interesting processor.

AMD has also refreshed its “e” series lineup. At 45W, these parts are somewhat hotter than the “u” series, but they are also quite a bit cheaper. The Athlon II X2 250e is a 3GHz part with 2MB of L2 cache and it should sell around the €75 mark. The triple-core Athlon II X3 420e runs at 2.6GHz and it is listed at around €100, depending on the market. The 2.5GHz X4 615e has been listed for a while and it should sell for €130, give or take a few euro.
