AMD intros four low-power Athlons

Written by


25W to 45W
In addition to several high-end Phenoms introduce a couple of days back, AMD has also refreshed its low-power lineup with four new Athlon II parts.

The dual-core Athlon II X2 270u is the most impressive of the lot, as it has a 25W TDP, which is less than many mobile CPUs. Of course, AMD had to cut some corners to achieve such a low TDP, so the 270u is clocked at just 2GHz, but it’s still a very interesting processor.

AMD has also refreshed its “e” series lineup. At 45W, these parts are somewhat hotter than the  “u” series, but they are also quite a bit cheaper. The Athlon II X2 250e is a 3GHz part with 2MB of L2 cache and it should sell around the €75 mark. The triple-core Athlon II X3 420e runs at 2.6GHz and it is listed at around €100, depending on the market. The 2.5GHz X4 615e has been listed for a while and it should sell for €130, give or take a few euro.
