AMD's "Brisbane" gets a new name and lower TDP

According to our source it appears that AMD are set to reposition its Athlon 64 X2 processors towards entry level users, in preparation for its upcoming Phenom processors. In an interesting move, the repositioned Athlon 64 X2's will be sporting a new model number system, which replaces the performance rating that debuted along with the Athlon XP processor.

AMD began sampling its upcoming Athlon 64 X2 BE-2000-series processors. The new Athlon 64 X2 BE-2000-series remains based on AMD’s 65nm Brisbane-core, but with lower thermal ratings. AMD Athlon BE-2000-series processors will arrive with 45-watt TDP ratings, equaling that of the energy efficient single-core processors.

Three AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2000 series models will be available – the BE-2400, BE-2350 and BE-2300. AMD has set the clock speeds of the new BE-2000-series at 2.3 GHz, 2.1 GHz and 1.9 GHz, respectively. As with other Brisbane-based processors, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2000-series feature 2x512KB of L2 cache, 2000 MHz HyperTransport speed and AMD Virtualization technology.
