|AMD announced during the first day of the Computex, the immediate availability of Athlon 64 X2 processors. You can take a look at our article about AMD dual core CPU here. 4 versions are available:
- A64 X2 4200+ : 2.2 GHz, 512 KB of cache L2 per core, US $537
- A64 X2 4400+ : 2.2 GHz, 1024 KB of cache L2 per core, US $581
- A64 X2 4600+ : 2.4 GHz, 512 KB of cache L2 per core, $803
- A64 X2 4800+ : 2.4 GHz, 1024 KB of cache L2 per core, $1,001.
According to AMD, several OEMs such as Acer, Alienware, HP and Lenovo will release configurations based on Athlon 64 X2 processors. The Athlon 64 X2 is still however currently absent from HP and Alienware websites. “Immediate availability” doesn’t means for AMD the availability for the end user and we feel that “immediate shipment” would have been preferable. Anyway Athlon 64 X2 processors sales won’t be titanic and chances to find one in retail are reduced…
