Desktop applications should experience the same performance when running on comparable energy-efficient AMD processors as with the current low wattage AMD64 dual-core desktop processor offerings, but the desktop PC can use less energy to reduce the cost of its operation as well as any associated cooling requirements in its environment. AMD Athlon™ X2 dual-core processors are designed for mainstream and enthusiast power users who run multiple processor-intensive applications simultaneously.
AMD Athlon™ X2 dual-core processors are also ideal for digital content creation and entertainment consumption.
With AMD Athlon™ X2 dual-core processors, the ability to multi-task, such as creating digital content while checking and writing e-mails, while downloading audio files such as MP3s or music downloads off the Web, allows users to do more in less time. Client dual-core processors are also designed to deliver superior performance over similar single-core processors as multi-threaded applications spread from the enterprise server market to the client and consumer markets.
