AMD Athlon X2 4450E


$76.00 Released April, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Low thermal output and power usage means a quiet and cool system. Perfectly enough power for the majority of people - even less intensive gamers. Fairly inexpensive.

The Cons:Most chips (even higher end 65W+ chips) run at similar idle temperatures/power draws. Low TDP chips often cost more than their regular 65W part brethren. Slower than other chips from AMD/Intel.

A renamed BE-2400, the 45w TDP AMD Athlon X2 4450E 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.
