Athlon 64 X2 5200+ processors will only be available in 65-watt energy efficient models. The Athlon 64 X2 5000+ will be positioned as a mainstream part with the arrival of the Athlon 64 X2 5200+. The first quarter of 2007 will bring the 2.8 GHz Athlon 64 X2 5400+ and 5600+ models. The difference between the 5400+ and 5600+ models will be L2 cache sizes, 2x512KB for the 5400+ and 2x1MB for the 5600+. Both models will have a TDP of 89-watts. Brisbane Athlon 64 X2(65-watt TDP) processors will slowly arrive in 2007 starting with the lower end models. Lastly AMD is expected to move Sempron 4000+, 3800+, 3600+, 3500+ and 3400+ models processors over to a 65nm Fab process around Q2’07. A new Sempron 4200+ is expected to launch in Q3’07 too.

The majority of their sales are lower end chips, so its a financially smart move. Will also make some sweet overclocking chips on the cheap :D
