AMD Unveils Energy Efficient Desktop Processor Roadmap for AM2
AMD has announced its processor line up for the new AM2 socket. All these new AM2 processors are designed to be more energy efficient and AMD believes this is what the market wants.

Bob Brewer, corporate vice president, Desktop Business, AMD said "Customers are demanding a renewed focus on energy efficiency and AMD is responding by delivering energy-efficient desktop processors that can help OEMs innovate and deliver small, sleek PC designs that enable businesses and consumers to save energy. AMD has established leadership in both desktop and servers with energy efficiency and performance-per-watt, and we are extremely pleased to once again raise the bar in desktop energy efficiency."

Using technology developed for their Blade servers and the Opteron processor, the new desktop processors can deliver much greater performance-per-watt over the existing desktop processors, and reduce overall power consumption. AMD are claiming improvements of up to 37 percent performance-per-watt than standard power AMD processors.

The new processors come with either a 65 or 35 watt level of power consumption. These are known as their "Desktop" processors (65 watt) or "Small Form Factor Desktop" processors (35 watt).

65 watt Desktop processors are all dual-core Athlon 64 X2:
  • 4800, US$671
  • 4600, US$601
  • 4400, US$514
  • 4200, US$417
  • 4000, US$353
  • 3800, US$323

    32 watt, Small Form Factor Desktop processors range from a dual-core Athlon 64 X2 3800, US$364 single core processors:
  • Athlon 64 3500, US$231
  • Sempron 3400, US$145
  • Sempron 3200, US$119
  • Sempron 3000, US$101

    New processors will be available in May and need a new AM2 socket mainboard.
