The average power consumption of the new chips is expected to be about 31 watts.


that means idle wattage will be lower :) 


can you say "overclocking headroom"?

This is a good news for AMD is will increase the number of A64 produce per wafer and increase profit margin as it was not so high on A64.

i need to change useur name.

>can you say "overclocking headroom"?

Remains to be seen. I'm not convinced even current A64's are thermally limited. Even if you apply liquid cooling, they just don't seem to overclock all that much. Rumours that the 2.6 GHz Athlon FX55 will be 130nm based and AMD will not go above ~2.6 until they implement a 11 layer design early next year reinforce my idea that it will take until spring next year until we get some really good overclockers from AMD.

Can you say "Tbred-A" ?

That process allows it to do the same work with less loss from resistance which normally confirms to heat. Less heat is good. Also less juice. Man I can wait to toast one of those chips

If they're available in a desktop pin grid that will be truely amazing. Building a super-high-performance Home Theater PC with a fan that spins so low you can't hear it will be easy, buiding a nearly silent desktop with inexpensive coolers will be easy, keeping your room cool will be easy, etc.

Not yet without stuttering, but I'm getting there!
