First quad-core AMD desktop CPU to top 3.0GHz

AMD on Tuesday introduced its 2010 lineup of components for mainstream desktop PCs, including a 3.0GHz Athlon II X4 offering. The X4 640 is said to be the company's first quad-core desktop CPU in the Athlon II family to run at 3.0GHz, a modest increase over the current X4 635 model that offers 2.9GHz performance.

The company has also added the X4 610e, a 2.4GHz CPU that fits in the energy-efficient Athlon II category. The 610e gains 0.1GHz over the 605e, while retaining the same 45W power-consumption rating.

AMD has yet to provide specific launch details, although the X4 640 and 610e are expected to be in the same price range as their predecessors.
