“Today brings us to the next step of AMD’s low power strategy, with the release of AMD’s 65nm Athlon X2 BE-2350 and BE-2300 processors. These ‘Brisbane’ based models sport a maximum power rating of 45w and weigh in below $100, making for a cost-effective processor that is cheap to buy and cheap to run.”
Here are some more Processor articles from around the web:
AMD’s move to 65nm has brought the opportunity to provide big power savings via their new Brisbane processors. The two dual core models, the BE-2350 which runs at 2.1GHz and the BE-2300 at 1.9GHz both have 64K of L1 instruction space, and 64K of L1 data cache per core. The L2 has a 512KB cache for each core as well, so there has been no real reduction there.
