Two latest energy-efficient Athlon II CPUs are shipping
Oct 20, 2010: One month ago AMD refreshed lineups of Athlon II and Phenom II microprocessors, adding various standard-power models, as well as energy-efficient Athlon II X2 250e, X3 420e and X4 615e CPUs. At the time we speculated that "we won't see new Athlon II 'e' models in retail any time soon". It turns out that our assumption was incorrect, and two out of the three new low-power Athlon IIs are already in stock in a number of online stores.

AMD cuts prices on energy-efficient Athlon II processors
Sep 27, 2010: Earlier this week, on September 21, AMD unveiled 10 new desktop microprocessors. New models included 6 standard-power CPUs, one ultra-low voltage processor, and three energy-efficient "e" models. We just found out that, on top of adding new microprocessors to Athlon II and Phenom II families, AMD also cut prices on energy efficient parts. We also learned prices of recently introduced "e" models.

AMD releases low-power desktop Athlon II CPUs
Sep 21, 2010: As we already reported today, AMD refreshed all active desktop Athlon II and Phenom II families with 6 new standard-power models. These microprocessors were not the only ones released today. AMD also launched 4 low and ultra-low power Athlon II CPUs - dual-cores 270u and 250e, triple-core 420e, and quad-core 615e.

AMD boxed desktop processors for Q3/Q4 2010
Jul 28, 2010: We recently stumbled upon public AMD dealer product training document, that contains limited information about planned desktop microprocessors for the rest of this year. The document doesn't show any new processor models besides those that are already known from our stories, and from stories posted by other hardware news sites. Nevertheless, we decided to post two pages from the document as they confirm impending release of new Phenom II, Athlon II and Sempron models.

AMD Athlon II and Phenom II CPUs planned for the third quarter
Jul 20, 2010: AMD already refreshed their lines of desktop Athlon II and Phenom II families two times in 2010. First time it happened in January, when AMD released standard-power Phenom II X2 and Atlhon II microprocessors, and second time it was at the end of April and in May, when AMD introduced 6-core Phenom II processors, and updated the whole line of Athlon II CPUs. In the third quarter AMD plans an incremental upgrade for many energy-efficient and standard-power Athlon II CPUs, and will introduce a few Phenom II models.

Upcoming AMD desktop processors
Mar 24, 2010: This quarter AMD released only three Athlon II-branded models, dual-core 255 (3.1 GHz), triple-core 440 (3 GHz) and quad-core 635 (2.9 GHz), and two new quad-core Phenom II models - 555 and 910e. Second quarter should be much more interesting as we will see six-core Phenoms (posted earlier this month), and many new Athlon II models.

AMD 250e Benchmarks

The graphs below show up to 10 microprocessors with approximately the same level of integer (CPU), floating-point (FPU), SIMD and memory performance. All processors were not overclocked, and were tested at a nominal frequency, with a stock heatsink and default BIOS settings. Click on the '?' mark next to each model name to see specifications of that model, and details of the test platform. To find out how the 250e compares to other CPUs in specific benchmarks or in aggregate milti-threading performance please see benchmark tools section on the right.

what's the release date on this processor?

Response: Release date of this processor was last week. Don't expect these processors in stores any time soon as all of them are shipped to OEMs. The Athlon II 245e was released in May, and it's still not in stores.
