AMD Athlon 4850e & 780G as HTPC Platform
Posted by newsbot on April 26th 2008



AMD has for quite some time provided the most power efficient pro cessors on the market. In fact, the ULV versions of the Athlon 64 X2 proc essors have been able to draw as little as 45watts, and at speeds of abov e 2GHz. Now, that's something even the laptops would love to have runni ng in them, yet they are desktop processors. How's that for efficiency? Today we are testing out AMD's latest addition to its 45watt TDP family with a clock speed of 2.5 GHz; that's pretty efficient for such a powe rful processor with Dual Core functions. Rather than just being a CPU rev iew, today we are looking at the new Athlon 4850e processor as a HTPC com ponent in conjunction with the AMD 780G chipset and Radeon HD 3450 graphi cs card.
