AMD releases new socket FM1 processor, adjusts prices

Feeling increased product pressure by Intel, which just released a new platform based on a new chipset and chips, AMD has released a new member of the FM1 processor familiy – the AMD Athlon II X4 651.

The new chip is made for AMD’s socket FM1 platform, runs at 3.00 GHz and does not feature an on-die GPU. TDP is set at 100W while the L2 cache is 4 MB as expected. AMD charges 92 US dollars for the novelty. Performance-wise the new processor offers slight increase in processing speed compared to the AMD A8-3850, which runs at 2.90 GHz, while at the same time it costs much less due to the missing on-die graphics processor.
