Microprocessors of Advanced Micro Devices with trimmed power consumption, which were introduced in May, have finally reached the retail market. The new AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2 and Sempron processors are currently available in several stores in
Japan. U.S. price-search engines, however, do not locate the appropriate microprocessors.

A number of stores in Japan have begun to sell energy efficient versions of AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (2000MHz, 512KB level-two cache per core [1MB of L2 cache in total]) and 4200+ models (2200MHz, 512KB level-two cache per core [1MB of L2 cache in total]), which consume 65W, down from typical 89W thermal design power (TDP). According to Akiba PC Hotline, the energy efficient AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and 4200+ cost ¥38 844 – ¥40 980 ($337 – $355) and ¥50 780 – ¥53 340 ($442 – $463), respectively. By contrast, typical versions of the dual-core 3800+ and 4200+ processor sell for prices starting from ¥34 800 ($302) and ¥42780 ($370), respectively.

As the newspost says, reach retail in Japan. However, according to other forums, they will be available in Germany (and perhaps the rest of Europe) in the next 3 - 4 weeks.
