AMD Athlon X2 BE-Series Hits Retail

@ 2007/07/13
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.

majority of not "every other year" upgrading people who know a bit about hardware have bought S939 A64 these past years; since AMD abandoned S939 they feel screwed over (rightly so!).

they'll not release new S939 CPUs, but it would have been nice

Not very likely I'd imagine, especially with AM2+ drawing near...?

It will make hell of a splash if AMD releases a few S939 X2 >3G.
