AMD working on socket FM2 Athlons

Written by Peter Scott



Piledriver quads


Although AMD’s focus has shifted to APUs, the company is not about to kill off its legendary Athlon brand anytime soon.

CPU World reports that AMD is planning to refresh the Athlon II X4 lineup with three Piledriver parts for the new socket FM2 platform, but we don’t have a launch date yet.

The Athlon II X4 730 is a 2.8GHz part with a 65W TDP, while the Athlon II X4 740 comes in clocked at 3.2GHz and features the same TDP. Both pack four Piledriver fours and 4MB of L2 cache.

The unlocked Athlon II X4 750K is also a quad-core, but it’s a 100W part clocked at 3.4GHz.

There is still no word on Turbo clocks, although it is very likely the new Athlons will feature Turbo Core technology. Also, no word on pricing yet, but since we are talking about Piledriver parts with no graphics, they should end up on the cheap side.
