AMD has announced new 45-Watt energy efficient processors.

AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 2.3GHz priced at $104
AMD Athlon LE-1620 2.4GHz priced at $53
AMD Athlon LE-1600 2.2GHz priced at $47
AMD Sempron LE-1250 2.2GHz priced at $53
AMD Sempron LE-1200 2.1GHz priced at $48
AMD Sempron LE-1100 1.9GHz priced at $37
(pricing in 1,000 units for processor-in-box)

I think that this along with the 3-core processors from AMD are all examples of how they really are trying. I’m not sure exactly whether or not 45W desktop processors will really help them but I think that the few that are tech savvy enough to really think about how much power your processor uses would be interested in the processors.
