New AMD FM2+ CPU Spotted
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
A new AMD CPU has been spotted in the support manual for the FM2A88X Pro+ motherboard from AsRock. The new CPU has a model number of 450 and the Athlon branding, so it probably won’t have an integrated GPU. With the Athlon X4 860K being released next week, it’s logical to assume that it will be a dual-core Kaveri version.
The support list states the Athlon 450 has a clock speed of 3.5 GHz and 1MB L2 shared cache at a TDP of 65 Watts. The list didn’t mention any turbo core speed and judging by the model number, this will be a CPU with a locked multiplier.
A few other characteristics can be gleaned from the AD450XYBI23JA part number. The digit “2” in the part number signifies the number of cores. The digit “3” confirms the size of L2 cache, 1 MB shared between 2 cores, and indicates the lack of L3 cache. The “JA” suffix tells us that the CPU will be based on stepping A1 of Kaveri core. Release date of the Athlon X2 450 is not known yet.
Thank you cpuworld for providing us with this information.
