Pre-order prices of "Kabini" socket AM1 APUs

AMD is about to release ultra low power "Kabini" Accelerated Processing Units for a PGA socket, originally called FS1b. Based on earlier reports, the processors with model numbers 5150 and 5350 (or A4-5150 and A6-5350) will be marketed as Athlons, while slower 2650 and 3850 models will be sold as Semprons. The socket FS1b will be also re-branded, and it is going to be called Socket AM1. Although the new Athlon and Sempron APUs are expected to perform slower than their socket FM2 counterparts, the "Kabini" chips will have much better power consumption and should will be very inexpensive. It was rumored that the processors will launch in March, and they are already available for pre-order in US, priced from $38 to $65, or about $5 - $10 higher than their rumored official prices:

Pre-order prices of Athlon and Sempron Kabini APUs

Athlon 5150 and 5350, and Sempron 3850 are quad-core parts with 2 MB of level 2 cache. The Athlons run at 1.6 GHz and 2.05 GHz clock speeds respectively, which matches older reports. The Sempron operates at 1.45 GHz, or 50 MHz faster than previously reported. Pre-order prices of Athlon 5150 and 5350 are $53.80 and $65.42, and the Sempron 3850 can be pre-ordered for $44.23.

Sempron 2650 is a dual-core chip, and it is clocked at 1.3 GHz. The specs on the website state that the 2650 has 2 MB L2 cache, which is likely to be incorrect. The APU has SD2650JAH23HM part number, and the last digit "3" corresponds to 1 MB L2 cache. This Sempron is priced at $38.30.

All new processors have integrated R3 series graphics, and fit into 25 Watt TDP. Known specifications of all CPUs are provided below:

Athlon 5150 4 1.6 GHz 2 MB HD 8400 600 MHz DDR3-1600 25 Watt $45
Athlon 5350 4 2.05 GHz 2 MB HD 8400 600 MHz DDR3-1600 25 Watt $54
Sempron 2650 2 1.45 GHz 1 MB HD 8240 400 MHz DDR3-1333 25 Watt $35
Sempron 3850 4 1.3 GHz 2 MB HD 8280 450 MHz DDR3-1600 25 Watt $39

and the APUs for game consoles also have 256Bit memory interface, and HD7850 GPU class graphics included, the whole chip has about 100W TDP also ...

This kabini APU on the other side fits perfect into small notebooks too, but can also be used in small desktop systems, perhaps even without fan if cooler is big enough.
Although in a desktop, i would prefer the new 65W Kaveri APU, because overall performance is much higher.
