AMD’s Athlon branding would possibly per chance presumably also very neatly be the company’s longest running one through its business CPU suggestions. These be half of AMD’s already-launched Athlon 200GE, however offering elevated clockspeeds for better total performance, whereas keeping contained in the identical 35W TDP of their slower, decrease-tier sibling.
Every the Athlon 220GE and 240GE defend the 2-core, 4-thread originate of the Athlon 200GE, however their clockspeeds have faith been elevated to three.4 GHz and and three.5 GHz respectively (the 200GE runs at three.2 GHz. Pricing, clearly, increases because the clockspeed does, and whereas the Athlon 200GE is a bag at steady $fifty five (with its integrated, three compute-devices graphics accelerator), the 220GE goes for $Sixty 5, and the 240GE will seemingly be available for $seventy five.
