AMD shows off autumn CPU lineup

Written by


Something old, something new
AMD has announced a several new parts and a new price list. Truth be told, most of the processors in question aren’t really all that new, as we’ve already talked about them weeks ago.

The six-core Phenom II X6 1075T should retail at $245 and it’s quite an interesting part. It’s clocked at 3GHz, but it automatically overclocks to 3.5GHz thanks to Turbo Core. In related news, AMD has also started shipping the 1045T, which is apparently reserved for the OEM market and it was spotted in some HP rigs a few days back. It’s clocked at 2.7GHz, but since you really can’t get one, there’s no point in talking about it.

The Phenom II X4 970BE is the company’s new flagship quad-core. It’s clocked at 3.5GHz and it has a 125W TDP. It should sell around the $180 mark. The Phenom II X2 560BE is an 80W dual-core clocked at 3.3GHz and it should go for $105, which sounds like a quite reasonable deal.

In addition to Phenom series processors, AMD also introduced a new Athlon and apparently dropped the price of some older models. The Athlon II X3 450, originally spotted in August, is now shipping at $87, which sounds like a very good deal for a 3.2GHz tri-core. The new 2.8GHz Sempron 145 is also shipping at just $46.

AMD announced a Phenom II X4 970BE @ only 3.5GHz, instead of the anticipated 975BE @ 3.6 GHz, but @ 140W. This makes me believe that they will come out later with a 3.6 GHz/125W part. AMD doesn't seem too hot on going back to 140W parts.

Of course, many will still prefer to buy the cheaper 3.2 Ghz 955BE and bump it themselves to 3.6 GHz.

there's really not much point in buying the absolute flagship CPU, it's better to just buy the PII X4 955 BE and push it to 3.4Ghz by pushing the multipliers yourself since a 965 is 955 with an extra multiplier, same specs, same power consumption, same heat output, not worth the extra money when you can do it yourself within less than a minute.

Oh highest AMD default clock speed till date !!

4 cores @ 3.5 GHz @ 125w & 45nM. I can't wait to see 32nM.

Actually the benefit of buying a higher clocked BE CPU is that you get higher clocks with the same thermal output...that means the overall efficiency of the CPU is better then a lower model and so you can get more performance per watt ultimately.

You're confusing TDP with thermal output.
TDP is a rating mainly for mainboard manufacturers to put enough phases or high power phases and proper cooling.

Other than that, the models consume each different amounts of power for their respective performance:
955BE C2 ~85W
965BE C2 ~100W
965BE C3 ~90W
Core i7 920 ~80W
(er: 5%)

According to Intel, the TDP of the i7 920 is 130w.

Dang. I was expecting an X6 clocked at 3.4GHz. I'm a little disappointed. :cry:
