AMD's Upcoming Name Change on Desktop Processors

| CPUs, Chipsets & SoCs News | Posted: May 3, 2007 3:43 am

AMD's 45W Brisbane cores will be released in the near future, and to come with these is a more condensed naming scheme as well. The Dailytech have taken a look at AMD's latest roadmap and discovered that three different models will be announced at 1.9GHz, 2.1GHz and 2.3GHz; branded as the AMD BE-2300, AMD BE-2350 and AMD BE-2400 respectively.

 

Low-end Sempron (45W Sparta) cores will also be designated a similarly shortened naming scheme.

If typing "AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 89W 1MB L2 Brisbane" feels like a chore, don't fret as you'll only have to put up with it a little bit longer. AMD's newest roadmap reveals the company has plans to change the naming schedule of its upcoming processors.

 

The first of these processors to get the new nomenclature are the low-power, dual-core Brisbane CPUs. These processors, clocked in the 1.9 GHz to 2.3 GHz range, will feature a 45W thermal envelope. AMD guidance claims these chips will get a simpler designation than "Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 45W 1MB L2 Brisbane."
