Last flagship X2 CPU

| Posted: Jan 1, 1970 12:00 am

Timed to fill in the gap while they prepare K10, AMD will launch one more flagship desktop processor in the near future as a member of their Athlon 64 X2 family, this being a 6400+ model (pushing the current 6000+ off the pedestal).

 

The new chip will operate at 3.2 GHz with 2MBs of L2 cache, and according to sources it will be priced at somewhere around $220 to $250 USD.

 

Digitimes have the full scoop here.

 


AMD is preparing to launch a new high-end desktop processor, the Athlon 64 X2 6400+, which will be the last processor in the Athlon 64 X2 family, according to sources at motherboard makers.

 

Currently, AMD's highest-end desktop processor is the Athlon 64 X2 6000+, however with its performance unable to match Intel's upcoming Core 2 Duo E6850, AMD plans to launch the new 6400+ to cover up the gap in the market, noted the sources.
