Default InsideHW reviews Athlon X2 BE-2350

After presenting the new 690G chipset, it was logical to assume that AMD was to present some new CPUs as well that would fit in well with the new motherboards. As 690G-based motherboards are basically tiny multimedia devices on which everything is integrated, from LAN controllers and sound subsystem to graphics outputs (VGA, DVI and HDMI), it's certain that computers based on these are rather small power-consumers. To fulfil the expectations, AMD released a new processor series, which is even more rational and efficient as far as power consumption is concerned.

X2 processors consumed 89 W up to now, but this was decreased by 30% with the new series, down to a value of 65 W. The new model name, Athlon X2 BE-2350, is a bit odd, because AMD has never marked its processors with "performance rating" numbers not rounded up to 100. The new processors can be recognized by their serial numbers, where the last two letters must be "DD", e.g. "ADH2350IAA5DD", as with our test sample.
