Inquirer: AMD quietly adds faster Athlons, renames chipsets

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looks like there are a couple of new members to the X2 family.

Quote:
The new CPUs come in 5400+ and 5600+ variants, but the clock speed for both is the same: 2.8GHz. The difference is the amount of L2 cache per core. While the 5400+ comes with X2-typical 512KB per core (total: 1MB), the 5600+ comes with 1MB of L2 cache per core (total: 2MB) giving it equal specs to top-of-the-line AM2 CPU, the Athlon 64 FX-62 and the newly introduced FX-72 (the one using Socket 1207FX).
...
Unlike the silent launch of the 5400+/5600+, the launch of 5800+ and 6000+ should feature reviews of the products as well. The Athlon 64 X2 5800+ will work at 3GHz with 512KB of L2 cache per core, while the 6000+ will be Socket AM2 version of the FX-74: 3.0GHz clock and 1MB L2 cache per core.

Just throwing this out there? Do people actually buy these 5000 series X2s? I don't think I have ever seen them in anybody's system specs.
