Over a month later, customers can purchase the 45-watt processors

AMD’s Athlon X2 BE-series processors have hit retail. AMD announced two Athlon X2 BE-series processors early last month, but the processors were absent from retail channels. Over a month later, the Athlon BE-series processors have begun showing up on Newegg. Newegg offers the Athlon X2 BE-2300 and BE-2350 for $89.50 and $95 USD, respectively.

The AMD Athlon X2 BE-series, based around Brisbane, offers lower thermal ratings at 45-watts. Besides the lower thermal ratings, the Athlon X2 BE-series is nearly identical to the Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane models, with 2x512KB of L2 cache, 2000 MHz HyperTransport speed and AMD Virtualization technology.

AMD has only officially announced the Athlon X2 BE-2350 and BE-2300, clocked at 2.1 GHz and 1.9 GHz. However, AMD plans to release a third model, the 2.3 GHz Athlon X2 BE-2400 in August, with the same 45-watt thermal ratings.

AMD plans to replace the Athlon X2 Brisbane-based processors with Rana early next year. Rana transitions the Athlon X2 to the Socket AM2+ platform with HyperTransport 3.0. Rana will have a short life-span, being replaced by Regor in 2H’08. Regor adds support for DDR3 memory and compatibility with AMD’s upcoming Socket AM3 platform.
