AMD在Computex 2009除了發表筆電平台外,還有發表兩顆桌上型的CPU,Phenom II X2 550黑盒版與Athlon II X2 250,其中Phenom II X2 550黑盒版是第一個Phenom雙核心的CPU,然後都是隸屬在AMD Dragon之下,印象中,有一顆CPU已經被人成功開成4核心,不知道是哪一顆的說?

這兩顆CPU的定價,Phenom II X2 550為102美元,而Athlon II X2 250則是訂在87美元,補足Phenom II 與Athlon之間的價格帶。

這次的重點還是在Dragon桌上型平台上,CPU方面從雙核、3核到4核,GPU則是宣佈正式完整支援DX 11。在企業端方面,主打的重點有幾:虛擬化、低耗能與新的6核Opteron,虛擬化方面是基於名為 "AMD-V" 的技術,低耗能則是加入了名為 "AMD-P" 的功能(由Smart Fetch、Power Cap與CoolCore等3技術合稱),新6核的Opteron強調每瓦耗電上的效能較以往增加了34%。

<Computex 2009: AMD Announces Phenom II X4 995 Black Edition and Athlon II X2 250 CPU>
Apart from the already announced notebook platforms, AMD also announces two CPUs for desktop, Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition and Athlon II X2 250. In particular, the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition is the first dual-cord Phenom CPU in the AMD Dragon lineup. We recall that one of the CPUs has been re-developed into quad-cord, but we are not sure which.

The focus in this press conference is going to be on the Dragon platform for desktop, CPU-wise will start from dual-core, tri-core to quad-core, GPU-wise will fully support DirectX 11.

The press conference has not started yet, we will bring more detail forward as it comes in.

[Updated]
The price for Phenom II X2 55 will be $102 USD and Athlon II X2 250 at $87 USD to fill in the gap between Phenom II and Athlon.

In the press conference, several key points were mentioned for enterprise applications: virtualization, energy-saving and new sexa-core Opteron. The virtualization part is based on the "AMD-V" technology, the energy-saving part is the addition of "AMD-P" feature (a combination of three separate technologies: Smart Fetch, Power Cap and CoolCore), as for the new sexa-core Opteron, the emphasis is on 34% performance improvement per watt.
