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.  Drop by HotHardware for a look at how well they managed to reduce power and heat, and also make sure to read Ryan’s review too!
“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.”
