New power efficient Athlons, Semprons roll out

AMD has added six new, power-efficient processors to its product line, EE Times reports. The new chips all have power envelopes of 45W, and they include Sempron, Athlon, and Athlon X2 models. Incidentally, all six chips use AMD's new model numbering scheme with two leading letters and a four-digit number.

The chips include one Athlon X2 model, the BE-2400, which has a 2.3GHz clock speed and is priced at $104. There are also two single-core Athlon models: the 2.2GHz LE-1600, and the 2.4GHz LE-1620, which cost $47 and $53, respectively. On the Sempron side of things, AMD has rolled out three chips: the LE-1100, which runs at 1.9GHz and costs $37; the LE-1200, which runs at 2.1GHz and costs $48; and the LE-1250, which is clocked at 2.2GHz and has a $53 price tag.

You can read our review of the new X2's sibling, the Athlon X2 BE-2350, here. We also compared the BE-2350's power efficiency to the Core 2 Duo E4300 in this article.
