The first Kuma chips are officially available since Monday and AMD delivered new information about the Athlon X2 7550.
The Athlon X2 7550 is, like the pictured Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition, based on AMD’s K10 architecture.
Accordingly the Athlon X2 7550 will have 200 MHz less clock speed than the Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition reviewed by PC Games Hardware and won't have a open multiplier. Contrary to the 7750 BE the Athlon X2 7550 with 2.5 GHz will be available in an OEM version only. A boxed version with a cooler, which normally is intended for end customers, is not planned.
With 2x 512 KiByte L2 cache and 2 MiByte L3 cache the remaining specifications of the X2 7550 match those expected of a Kuma processor. AMD intents a voltage between 1.25 and 1.325 volt; TDP is 95 watts.
