Dual-core Kuma is an energy efficient CPU

Don’t expect high clocks


We learned that the upcoming Kuma CPU in 65nm will focus on the energy efficient market, rather than being a fast dual-core K10 derived CPU.

The plan for the 65nm Kuma is to keep them at the lower frequencies and try to beat the competition in the low power market while the tri-core Tolliman and quad-core Agena are there for the high-end market.

Athlon will remain the fastest dual-core CPU from AMD, and it looks like it's the only part that can get pushed over the 3GHz limit.
