updated 02:15 pm EDT, Mon August 13, 2007

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Black

The Japanese division of AMD has made an unexpected processor announcement. While promoting an upcoming, 3GHz Phenom processor, the company also took the time to promote a new Athlon CPU, the Athlon 64 X2 Black Edition. Shipped in a box of its namesake color, the unit is essentially a 6400+ clocked at 3.2GHz, with the added benefit of supporting unbuffered, 800MHz DDR2 RAM. The chip should ship to Japan August 20th at a cost equivalent to $240; no mention has been made of a North American release, but it is uncharacteristic of AMD to limit processors to individual countries.
