New low-power desktop CPUs from AMD


Sunnyvale (USA) – AMD has introduced a new series of low-power desktop processors, with thermal design power (TDP) of 45 watts, which are aimed primarily at ultra-quiet PCs (mini PCs, media centers, barebones, etc.) and to business thin clients.

The new CPUs consist of a dual-core Athlon 64, the BE-2400 (2.3 GHz), priced at $ 104; two single-core Athlon 64s, the LE-1620 (2.4 GHz) and the LE-1600 (2.2 GHz) priced at $ 53 and $ 47, respectively; and three Semprons, the LE-1250 (2.2 GHz), the LE-1200 (2.1 GHz) and the LE-1100 (1.9 GHz), costing 53, 48 and 37 respectively dollars.

It should be remembered that the TDP value used by AMD indicates the maximum power consumption of a processor: this means that in real work scenarios the typical consumption is on average lower, and the performance / consumption ratio is often particularly competitive.

AMD says the low-power Semprons are ideal for use in home server systems, possibly based on the infant Windows Home Server and very compact living room PCs.

Below is a summary of AMD’s new processors:
– Athlon X2 BE-2400 (2.3GHz / 45W) – 104 $
– Athlon LE-1620 (2.4GHz / 45W) – 53 $
– Athlon LE-1600 (2.2GHz / 45W) – $ 47
– Sempron LE-1250 (2.2GHz / 45W) – 53 $
– Sempron LE-1200 (2.1GHz / 45W) – 48 $
– Sempron LE-1100 (1.9GHz / 45W) – $ 37
