AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Hit the Shelves


AMD has chosen Computex, Taipei, to officially announce the availability of the AMD Athlon(TM) 64 X2 dual-core processor.

he AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor is designed for desktop and desktop-replacement notebooks, delivering performance improvements of up to 80 percent on select digital media and productivity applications compared to single-core AMD Athlon(TM) 64 processors. The AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor will be supported by leading OEMs including Acer, Alienware, HP and Lenovo, as well as more than 40 leading system-builder partners worldwide.

In addition, AMD 64 dual-core will be supported by numerous motherboard manufacturers. AMD Opteron(TM) and AMD Athlon(TM) 64 X2 dual-core processors are designed to work cooperatively with existing AMD64 939- and 940-pin processor-based motherboards with a BIOS update.
