AMD Launches 8 New CPUs Ahead of Windows 7 Debut, Targets SFF PCs

The article doesn’t mention if the L3 cache was removed liek they did with the 620-630 propus chips. If the cache has been cut then I’d say the prices were a ltitle high. But I could see putting an X2 45 watt chip in a client pc where the resource requirements are low.


Computer form factors are getting smaller every year. All-in-One systems like the iMac that integrate the computer into the monitor are becoming more popular, as are Home Theater PCs (HTPC)s and Small Form Factor (SFF) computers. These systems have limited space and thus get very hot since there is limited airflow. AMD wants to get in on this growing market, and to do that they need CPUs with a low TDP.
