The first AMD dual-core desktop processors will be presented at Computex on May 31.
The AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor will be launched on the first day of Computex, the mammoth show that brings most of Taiwan's computer hardware, software, and technology industry face-to-face with technology buyers from around the world, the company said Friday. AMD has used Computex in prior years to launch new processors. If previous years are a guide, the processor will likely be accompanied by the introduction of compatible motherboards produced by Taiwanese companies.
The power consumption of the Athlon 64 X2 is about 100 watts. More info at InfoWorld
