AMD drops the Phenom X2 TDP to 45-watts
AMD plans to cut power consumption of its mainstream
processors with the Phenom X2 GE-series, according to the company’s latest roadmap. The
GE-series joins the Phenom X2 GS-series in late Q1’2008, after the Phenom X2 GS-series makes its debut. AMD has three Phenom X2 GS-series in the pipeline with launches beginning in Q4’2007 and more models added in Q1’2008.
The new Phenom X2 GE-series matches the recently released
Athlon X2 BE-series
in terms of thermal design power, or TDP, at 45-watts. AMD Phenom X2 GS-series processors have 65-watt and 89-watt TDP ratings.The low power Phenom X2 GE-series will have three models – the GE-6600, GE-6500 and GE-6400.
AMD’s Phenom X2 GE-6600 clocks in at 2.3 GHz, coincidentally, the Intel
Core 2 Duo E6600
clocks in at 2.4 GHz. The middle of the Phenom X2 GE-series consists of the 2.1 GHz Phenom X2 GE-6500 while the 1.9 GHz Phenom X2 GE-6400 occupies the bottom of the lineup.
AMD Phenom X2 GE-series

All Phenom X2 GE-series processors share the same features. AMD equips the Phenom X2 GE-series with an HT3 bus with speeds equal to or in excess of 3.2 GHz. AMD has yet to set the official speeds of the HT3 bus on Phenom X2 GE-series processors. Phenom X2 GE-series processors are identical to the GS-series, in terms of cache configurations. The Phenom X2 GE-series feature 512KB of L2 cache per core and 2MB shared L3 cache.
Expect the AMD Phenom GE-series to drop into a
platform in Q1’2008.

Actually, his experience with all chipsets isn't typical ;) I'd take a Intel chipset over ATi or nV anyday for stability.
