Socket AM2 CPUs listed, specced, priced up

Cheapest AM2 CPU will cost €65
Sun May 21 2006, 08:55
SINCE WE'RE NOT running any benchmarks of Socket AM2 CPUs, here's some other info about the chips set to show up this coming Tuesday.

The line-up is currently divided into Semprons, Athlon 64s and the FX series and you can expect a lot of variation on cache sizes in the line-up. Both Sempr0ns and Athlons now come with two cache sizes, but bearing similar clock speeds with a 200+ PR point difference.

The prices are the same in dollars and Euro, even though we all know that AMD CPUs are manufactured in Dresden but the beancounters are located in US and that's all that matters. This is a common pattern across vendors.

All prices are set for box retail versions that come with heatsink, a manual and a sticker. The SKUs for the processors are as following:

SDAXXXXC NBOX - Sempron XXXX is the PR rating, L2 amount isn't different in SKU
ADAXXXXC UBOX - Athlon 64 X2 with 1MB of L2 cache, XXXX is the PR rating
ADAXXXXC SBOX - Athlon 64 X2 with 2MB of L2 cache, XXXX is the PR rating
ADAFXXXC SBOX - Athlon 64 FX, two XXs are the model number
