AMD intros business CPUs

Chip and motherboard maker AMD added four new business-class processors, according to a Friday report. Two of the chips, the 2.4GHz, 95W, X4 9750B quad-core and X3 8750B triple-core, are based on the Phenom architecture, while the other pair is built on the Athlon family. The X2 5600B dual-core is rated at 2.9GHz and draws 65W of power, while the X2 4850B dual-core is rated at 2.5GHz and draws 45W of power. In the past, Business-class Athlon CPUs from AMD predominantly used less energy, and the same holds true here as well.

The business treatment means the chips will offer more stability and longevity, as well as more productivity and less energy draw than their standard counterparts, though specific improvements have not been disclosed.

The business-class chips will ship to the OEM market, though exactly when or what the price premium will be has not been revealed.
