AMD pushes new naming scheme - PCstats.com AMD pushes new naming scheme
Sat, June 16 2007 | 2:36PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"AMD is preparing to replace its current processor numbering scheme for desktop processors with a new naming scheme which combines two letters and a four-digit number, according to Leslie Sobon, director of product and brand management in AMD.

AMD's new naming scheme will start with a letter to indicate the product level; G represents premium product, B represents intermediate product and L represents value product. A second letter will indicate the product's power consumption, with P representing over 65W, S around 65W and E less than 65W, noted Sobon.

The first digit of the proceeding four-digit number will indicate the product family; 1000 represents Sempron/Athlon single-core, 2000 represents Athlon dual-core, 6000 represents Phenom dual-core and 7000 represents Phenom quad-core. The second digit indicates relative core frequencies within the product family while the two remaining digits will be used for the future upgrade functions, pointed out Sobon. As Intel's processor lineup has also supported 64-bit technology since 2006, AMD decided to remove 64 out of its naming scheme to keep things simple, noted Sobon.

Newly released Athlon desktop processors have already started to switch to the new naming scheme including the Athlon X2 BE-2350 and Athlon X2 BE-2300, according to figures on AMD's website. According to sources at motherboard makers, AMD's new naming scheme is more complicated than Intel's Core 2 Duo series and its current scheme. The transition is predicted to take more than a half year to complete."
