Default AMD releases two energy-efficient Athlon chips

Both the Athlon X2 4450e and the Athlon X2 4050e are dual-core processors designed to reduce power consumption and offer greater performance per watt.

Today's release comes on the heels of AMD's early March announcement that the company was shipping the 45-watt, X2 4850E chip.

Dan Olds, an analyst with the Gabriel Consulting Group, called Intel's move to low-power low-power processors a smart one. "First, the low-power parts also mean low-heat output, which means the chips can be put into smaller form factors and that system vendors don't have to spend as much money on case design, cooling fans, and the like," he added. "Also these chips are pretty inexpensive, which also is an inducement for the system vendors to use them in their computers."

Has anyone seen them 'in the flesh'?
No sign of the 4850e yet and I'm told we could get them here but only if distributors order them. AMD are not bringing them in otherwise...
