Tired of writing a book to describe a CPU? So is AMD

If typing "AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 89W 1MB L2 Brisbane" feels like a chore, don't fret as you'll only have to put up with it a little bit longer. AMD's newest roadmap reveals the company has plans to change the naming schedule of its upcoming processors.

The first of these processors to get the new nomenclature are the low-power, dual-core Brisbane CPUs.  These processors, clocked in the 1.9 GHz to 2.3 GHz range, will feature a 45W thermal envelope.  AMD guidance claims these chips will get a simpler designation than "Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 45W 1MB L2 Brisbane."

Each of these new processors will be named as follows:
  • AMD BE-2400: 45W Brisbane, 2.3 GHz
  • AMD BE-2350: 45W Brisbane, 2.1 GHz
  • AMD BE-2300: 45W Brisbane, 1.9 GHz
Low-end, single-core Sempron cores will also get this designation, as follows:
  • LE-1300: 45W Sparta, 2.3 GHz
  • LE-1250: 45W Sparta, 2.2 GHz
  • LE-1200: 45W Sparta, 2.1 GHz
  • LE-1150: 45W Sparta, 2.0 GHz
  • LE-1100: 45W Sparta, 1.9 GHz
Upcoming K10-based Agena, Kuma, Rana will likely receive similar name changes, though AMD has not revealed these names yet.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
