AMD puts the 'B' in business CPUs

Four new processors for OEMs
Fri Aug 15 2008, 18:29

AMD HAS TAKEN the wraps off four new processors aimed for business machines.

The new CPUs are based on existing architectures, but have apparently been streamlined for greater stability and longevity, improved productivity and energy savings.

They're due to be pumped out to the OEM market, and have 'B' tacked onto the end so you know they're for 'business'.

The new chips include a pair of Phenoms, namely the X4 9750B Quad-Core Processor and the X3 8750B Triple-Core Processor, both running at 2.4GHz and drawing 95W.

The other pair are from the Athlon family and comprise the X2 5600B Dual-Core Processor at 2.9GHz and 65W and the X2 4850B Dual-Core Processor at 2.5GHz and 45W.

There was no news on price or exactly when these new chips will start tipping up in our business class PCs, but it can't be far away. µ
