AMD has quietly released a new Athlon 64 X2 5200+ processor for AM2 platforms. DailyTech previously reported AMD was expected to launch new Athlon 64 X2 5200+ processors. The Athlon 64 X2 5200+ is essentially identical to the previous socket 939 Athlon 64 FX-60, with the exception of socket and memory support. Clock frequency of the Athlon 64 X2 5200+ is also identical to the previous X2 5000+ at 2.6 GHz. The only difference with the X2 5200+ is the 2x1MB L2 cache configuration which delivers slightly better performance in cache intensive applications. The power envelope has increased due to the added L2 cache. While the X2 5000+ has a 65 watt TDP, the X2 5200+ TDP has increased to 89 watts.
