    AMD Dual Core with Phenom architecture II

    "Callisto is the codename under which indicated a new generation of dual-core Athlon processors, which are derived from the solutions Phenom II"

    According to information, AMD would prepare an answer to Intel processors in the segment of the dual core with a solution so far is not yet included in the roadmap and identified by the code name of Callisto.

    Talking about a cpu based on the same processor architecture II Phenom X4 and X3 recently show, platforms compatible with socket AM3 and AM2 sockets but with the idea of two processor cores. We recall that with the code name of Deneb are identified the cpu Phenom X4 II, while we refer to solutions Phenom X3 II.

    Callisto processors integrate two cores each with L2 cache of 512 Kbytes, up a unified L3 cache by as many as 6 Mbytes of up, like what is implemented in some versions of II processor Phenom X4 and Phenom II in the X3. It is not clear at present if the L3 cache may be proposed even in smaller quantities, such as 4 Mbytes of cpu Phenom X4 II 8x0.

    A processor would have to ensure, in conjunction with clock frequencies sufficiently high, a good level of performance when placed in comparison with the proposed Core 2 Duo from Intel. Currently AMD is proposing in this segment several versions of Athlon X2 processor with maximum clock frequency of up to 3.1 GHz, in addition to the Athlon X2 processor 7750 Black Edition based on the architecture of the Phenom cpu first series with L2 cache and 2 Mbytes clock of 2.7 GHz

    The processor family Callisto use the same day to 45 nanometers of cpu Phenom X4 and X3 II, through the decommissioning of two of the integrated core. This kind of approach will allow one hand to take advantage of processors that have to 2 cores is not functioning, but AMD will not be a choice for the most economically advantageous tender in terms of production, using a dual core die for these specific cpu.

    "... This kind of approach will allow one hand to use processors that have up to 2 non-functioning core, but AMD will not be a choice for the most economically advantageous tender in terms of production, using a die dual core cpu for these specific ...."
    I do not understand why it is not cost-effective .. It is still to re-use processors that would otherwise be inevitably discarded ....

    I do not understand why you say this:

    This approach will allow one hand to take advantage of processors that have up to 2 non-functioning core, but AMD will not be a choice for the most economically advantageous tender in terms of production, using a dual core die for these specific cpu.
    As such a procedure will allow you to use AMD chip that would otherwise be discarded because it does not properly functioning. So it could be a way to reduce production costs. (The thing that makes me think that if you use this system probably expect to produce many chips' failed ')

    I find that AMD is giving signs of recovery, a processor of this kind would certainly be offered a very attractive price, giving users the opportunity to build a PC discrete performance at a very popular. In times like these it is definitely good news ...
    In addition, Intel finally has a little more competitive, if not in the least in price performance.
