    AMD Athlon X2 3250e 22W TDP Processor

    Hello all,

    Last week I got a new Athlon X2 model processor,

    which is for OEM only and have a TDP of JUST 22W!

    I tested it a bit and below are some pics for your reference.

    Nice. Technically an 11Watts per core CPU. How is the overal performance? And how does it OC? lol. Any benchmarks? Is it passivly cooled?

    22W is nice, mostly for HTPC builds...but 1500MHz? :/

    I've been looking for this but apparently it was slated only to be sold to oem's not sold as oem.

    it's meant to go head to head with atom, 1500 is all it needs

    yup, right now I am testing the CPU with the best ITX board - MINIX 780G SP-128MB.

    I am almost done and will upload more results soon, stay tuned!

    revision G2 ?
    i found most AMD G2 processor's can run 2,8 Ghz plus .

    i think this processor can run 2 Ghz + .

    It should perform a lot better than ATOM with 1.5GHz.

    yah I figured it would now they just need to make it available to the public, I wanted to build one with a 780G and if my math is right the platform will draw 50w max........Amd needs to release this to the public, or not bother competing with atom, I will not buy a prebuilt rig with this cpu.....I want to set it up for my needs, not what someone thinks my needs are. You have a killawatt there? Would be nice to know if my math is correct for 780G.

    I don't have the meter, but it should be <60W if I don't oc.

    I'm still using an Athlon XP Barton core laptop, so any chance of upgrading to an AFFORDABLE dual core K8 @1.5 GHz laptop with decent on board graphic is certainly appreciated by me.

    This CPU is fantastic!

    I must try my X2 4450e at 1.075V/2.3GHz (default is 1.25V). Wonder if it will work ...

    With only 22W TDP and possibility of passive cooling this is perfect for many niche applications like CarPC, ULPC, industrial PC and more.

    Thanks for sharing kenofstephen!

    What psu did you have in mind while doing the math? The foxtronn psu they used here gives quite impressive results.
    For comparison an setup with an GBT 780g S2H board an 4850e, 2GB DDR2 800 mem at 1.8V and 160GB sata2 hd and an seasonic II 330W psu requires ~39W AC in idle and ~85W AC with worst case load (CoreDamage).
    Should be round ~30W/77W AC with the fortron. Doing an rough estimation now and simply using (77W-30W)/2 as the delta results in an 30W/53,5W AC consumption.
    Close to your estimantion and without taking lower mem and board requirements into account.

    +1 for not using the word HTPC here.

    oh ya, you need to try higher than that

    this mini-ITX board is so good at HTT overclocking! wow!

    I think G2 rev will OC up to 3GHz+
    Can some test with another motherboard with higher HTT? For max clock this CPU

    I don't prefer adding vcore as the major selling point of this CPU is "energy-saving", "low-power".

    @ default vcore oc to 2.4GHz one of the cores become unstable.
    I know adding a little bit vcore can fix it but I don't prefer doing so.

    not really, this ITX board can do over 400 HTT~...

    here you go~ 440 x 5~

    Wasn't really bringing a psu in to the math but it would have to have a high efficiency coupled with low watts. I had found a link to power consumption of boards hold on its in the original thread about this cpu, I will link it.

    The reccomended chipset for under 45w consumption with this chip is 740 advertised here http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...ighlight=3250e

    If we look at this chart we can see that a 780G platform consumes only a few more watts than 740G http://www.silentpcreview.com/article859-page5.html

    I rounded it up to 50 watts. The small cost of watts is worth it for the better performing IGP imo.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ame=AMD%20740G
    average cost of 740G $56.00 with hd2100 graphics.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ame=AMD%20780G
    average cost of 780G 79.85 with hd3200 graphics + better southbridge + wider variety of board options.

    Worth the $25 difference IMO and what amd should be pushing for with this UVC line of cpu's. This Psu would fit the bill. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151059
