HotHardware reviews AMD’s A64 X2 series based on the 65nm Brisbane core.  With 4 different socket AM2 processors, running from 2.1 to 2.6GHz and sporting 153.8 million transistors it sounds like a great replacement for the Windsor core.  Although the Brisbane does run a little slower than a Windsor at the same speed, it also uses less power which reinforces AMD’s desire for efficiency and getting more work per watt.

‘With this transition, cost is a major factor, of course, but not just from a manufacturing perspective. With the change over to 65nm, AMD has also sharpened their focus on power consumption and energy efficiency, which translates to lower operating costs as well.’
