New AMD platform for cheap desktops to come before September?
Over the past few months, we've heard rumors about AMD launching dual-core, Phenom II X4-based chips in the second quarter and following up with proper, 45nm dual-core Athlons in June. Today, DigiTimes writes that AMD has a new entry-level platform up its sleeve—and we should see it before September.
Code-named Pisces, the platform will reportedly couple a new 55nm 780G+ integrated graphics chipset with "Athlon II" processors based on the Propus, Rana, and Regor cores. According to a story from last November, Propus will debut in quad-core Athlon processors with no L3 cache, while Rana will fill in as the dual-core derivative. As for Rana, word got out last September that it would be a triple-core offering with no L3 cache.
