Following an official launch last month. AMD's latest Athlon X2 "BE-Series" processors have finally started entering retail channels, these being the Athlon X2 BE-2350 and Athlon X2 BE-2300 processors.


It's been discovered that Newegg now have these listed on their site, with the BE-2350 model shifting for $95 and the slightly lower-spec BE-2300 going for $89.50.


For those of you not aware of the BE-series characteristics, these are AMD's new low power offerings with a thermal rating of just 45 watts.


The Dailytech have further info here.


AMD's Athlon X2 BE-series processors have hit retail. AMD announced two Athlon X2 BE-series processors early last month, but the processors were absent from retail channels. Over a month later, the Athlon BE-series processors have begun showing up on Newegg. Newegg offers the Athlon X2 BE-2300 and BE-2350 for $89.50 and $95 USD, respectively.


The AMD Athlon X2 BE-series, based around Brisbane, offers lower thermal ratings at 45-watts. Besides the lower thermal ratings, the Athlon X2 BE-series is nearly identical to the Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane models, with 2x512KB of L2 cache, 2000 MHz HyperTransport speed and AMD Virtualization technology.
