That may be part of what’s happening with the BE and , whose model numbers are just a tad higher than the recently introduced Pentium E and E dual-core CPUs. We have a full slate of performance results for the BE, but we’re going to move through them quickly, since the BE is a low-end, low-power processor with few true competitors. Those hoping for nail biting, teeth clenching battles should apply elsewhere – the CPU war these days is a one horse race. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. More intriguingly, these CPUs are bargain priced. I’ll keep my performance commentary to a minimum.

Thus the simpler “Athlon X2” series is born.

The BE sips power like a mobile CPU but carries a wallet-friendly price tag of under bucks, which might make it an attractive prospect for your next system build. That may be part of what’s happening with the BE andwhose model numbers are just a tad higher than the recently introduced Pentium E and E dual-core CPUs.

It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. We probably won’t know how fully AMD will deploy this tactic until it announces more details about its naming scheme or introduces more products that use it.

The BE and will have some help fitting into their thermal envelope courtesy of AMD’s new ath,on fab process. But in the background, just above the sound of the air conditioning system forcing air through the vents, I can hear it: Read on to see how we used the BE as a low-power processor and then abused it as a high-power one, to the delight of all involved.

AMD Athlon X2 BE Mainstream X2s with 45W TDP

The BE is clocked at 1. Turns out these products are the first fruits of AMD’s new processor naming scheme. Notable by its omission in the new naming scheme is the “64” after be-235.

For now, the company intends to retain the “plus” model numbers on its existing products rather than renaming its whole lineup. Carefully selected as chips that can run at lower operating voltages and thus lower TDPs, these two processors are designed to be a more available version of the Energy Efficient Small Form Factor X2s that were introduced last year. Granted that AMD won’t be making a tremendous amount of money by doing this, but the end user stands to benefit, especially those with Socket-AM2 motherboards looking for faster CPUs.

AMD’s Athlon X2 BE-2350 processor

The new scheme is intended to provide more information about a processor at a glance and to confuse AMD’s enemies, bringing it victory on the field of battle.

The four numbers after that are divvied up into groups of one and three. If reports out of Taiwan are to be believed, initial performance results from AMD’s Barcelona fail to impress and we’ve got at least a quarter before the race can even potentially get competitive. In fact, at 35 watts, this CPU was essentially the exact same thing as a Turion 64 X2 processor, but ensconced in a desktop-style package and ready to drop into practically any Socket AM2 motherboard.

At least, I believe they indicate relative performance. Sunlight streams in through a window across the room, and every so often, I can hear the shuffle caused by my oldest child turning the page in the book he’s reading.

This change lines things up with future product names like “Phenom X4,” as well. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing
