AMD Athlon X2 5050e


$100.00 Released October, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Easy to overclock. 45w TDP stays cooler than regular desktop CPUs under full load. Fast enough for the majority of consumers.

The Cons:Last generation fab process and processor architecture.

AMD's Athlon X2 5050e is a mid-range dual-core desktop processor, based on a Brisbane core. The CPU clocks in at 2.6 GHz, and boasts good energy efficiency with a TDP of just 45 W. It lacks some of the advanced technical features of AMD's higher-end models, however, like 45nm manufacturing and an L3 cache.
