AMD Athlon X2 4050E
Released April, 2008
The Pros:Affordable price. Powerful enough for the majority of consumers. Highly overclockable.
The Cons:Slower stock core clockspeed is poor for demanding single threaded processes. Most processors idle at a similar reduced power level. Based on the aging K8 core.
A renamed BE-2350, the 45w TDP AMD Athlon X2 4050E processor is based on AMDs dual core 65nm Athlon X2 K8 series. Made up of the 4050e (BE-2350), 4450e (BE-2400) and the 4850e, the new 45w envelope is the only advancement of this series.

This improvement allows for cooler operation at similar performance levels, which in turn allows for quieter operation for less of a need to displace the heat generated by their hotter brethren. The chips run at 2.1, 2.3 and 2.5GHz respectively. Not a gaming or encoding chip by any stretch of the imagination, these processors are best suited for media center PCs or in any application where quiet and cool operation take precedence over performance.
