AMD has introduced desktop processors designed for users seeking the ultimate in energy-conscious or high-performance computing.


The new energy-efficient 45-watt AMD Athlon 64 single-core processors 3500+ and 3800+ can help consumers and businesses save energy and experience significant performance-per-watt benefits. And for those who crave high performance, AMD has also introduced the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor 6000+.

“Our relentless focus on customer-centric innovation and industry leadership in performance-per-watt enables AMD to offer the market new energy-efficient AMD Athlon 64 processors. We expect that our commercial and consumer customers, as well as end-users, will be pleased with both the low noise and small form factor designs possible using this latest generation of energy-efficient desktop processors,” says Gaith Kadir, GM: Middle East and Africa, AMD.

“With the simultaneous introduction of the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor 6000+, AMD remains a leading-edge provider of technology that offers end-users the performance they seek, while delivering the unwavering level of quality they have come to expect from AMD.”

AMD’s leadership in performance-per-watt computing, extending from the datacentre to the desktop, allows businesses and consumers to benefit greatly from energy-efficient processors.

The new energy-efficient AMD Athlon 64 processors 3500+ and 3800+ are based on 65nm technology. Using the reduced line widths enabled by 65nm technology, AMD can produce more processors on a 300mm wafer while manufacturing processors designed for low-power consumption, reinforcing AMD’s commitment to energy-efficient computing.
