DigiTimes, citing their usual anonymous sources at motherboard makers, claims that AMD is planning to launch several low-power triple-core and quad-core CPUs featuring a TDP of 65W during the second half of this year.

According to the report, two low-power triple-core Phenom CPUs should hit the streets by mid to late August – the X3 8250e and 8450e – featuring core frequencies of 1.9GHz and 2.1GHz respectively, an L2 cache of 1.5MB and L3 cache of 2MB. The company is also expected to launch the low-power quad-core Phenom X4 9350e in the third quarter and another model in the fourth quarter, followed by their first 45nm quad-core CPUs in late 2008 and early 2009, targeting core frequencies between 2.3 and 2.8GHz.

What? Only 2.8GHz out of 45nm? That's not going to be anywhere near good enough with 45nm Nehalems around the corner running at 3GHz stock....

My guess is that they are starting at low clock speeds and as yields and clocks improve they will start introducing higher clocked parts.

Gotta start somewhere... I'm just thankful they're moving in the direction of 45nm
