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.
