An interesting report coming out of Digitimes today: "AMD has rolled out a set of low-power desktop CPUs targeted at nettops, all-in-one PCs and ultra-small form factor PCs, dubbed Ultra-Value Clients (UVCs) by the chip maker.

The CPUs are the Athlon 2650e (1.6GHz/ 512KB L2 Cache/ 15W TDP) and Athlon X2 3250e (1.5GHz/1MB L2 Cache/ 22W TDP) the latter of which is priced around US$40-50 in thousand-unit tray quantities, compared to US$43 for the Atom 330 and US$29 for the single-core Atom 230, according to sources at PC OEMs.

In addition to the socket AM2+ desktop lineup, AMD also plans to offer socket S1 versions to target the notebook market, indicated the sources.

In other news, AMD has scheduled to roll out AM3-based low-power CPUs including the Athlon X4 605e (65W) and 6xxe (45W) in the first quarter of 2009, the sources said. The company also plans to introduce triple-core Athlon X3 405 (65W) and 4xxe (45W) models in the second quarter of this year, the sources added.

Meanwhile, orders for old-generation low-power CPUs including the Phenom X3 8250e (65W), Phenom X4 9150e (65W) and Athlon X2 4450e (45W) will be phased out by the end of the first quarter, 2009, according to the sources."
