AMD’s Upcoming Name Change on Desktop Processors

If typing “AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 89W 1MB L2 Brisbane” feels like a chore, don’t fret as you’ll only have to put up with it a little bit longer. AMD’s newest roadmap reveals the company has plans to change the naming schedule of its upcoming processors.

The first of these processors to get the new nomenclature are the low-power, dual-core Brisbane CPUs.  These processors, clocked in the 1.9 GHz to 2.3 GHz range, will feature a 45W thermal envelope.  AMD guidance claims these chips will get a simpler designation than “Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 45W 1MB L2 Brisbane.”

Each of these new processors will be named as follows:

  • AMD BE-2400: 45W Brisbane, 2.3 GHz
  • AMD BE-2350: 45W Brisbane, 2.1 GHz
  • AMD BE-2300: 45W Brisbane, 1.9 GHz

Low-end, single-core Sempron cores will also get this designation, as follows:

  • LE-1300: 45W Sparta, 2.3 GHz
  • LE-1250: 45W Sparta, 2.2 GHz
  • LE-1200: 45W Sparta, 2.1 GHz
  • LE-1150: 45W Sparta, 2.0 GHz
  • LE-1100: 45W Sparta, 1.9 GHz

Upcoming K10-based Agena, Kuma, Rana will likely receive similar name changes, though AMD has not revealed these names yet.
