Mini PCs to get boost from low-power CPUs in 2Q

Mini PCs will receive a boost in the second quarter of 2007, when AMD steps up efforts marketing its 35-watt CPUs made using 65nm technology, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers. While the power consumption of Intel's dual-core Conroe CPUs will remain at 65W in 2007, AMD is expected to introduce 35W processors of single-core Sempron and dual-core Athlon 64 X2 series in the second quarter, the sources said.

Athlon 64 X2 4200+, 4000+ and 3800+ will likely stimulate demand in the mini PC market, the sources said, adding that mini PCs have a strong potential as long as CPU suppliers continue elevating overall performance and lowering power consumption.

Finally, the elusive 35W X2 3800+! AMD pimped (or promised depending on how you look at it) this CPU out months ago. A lot of HTPC people were foaming at the mouth for it.
