- Athlon 200GE: 2 cores / 4 threads, 3.2GHz, 3 compute units, 35W TDP
AMD Athlon 200GE was priced at $55 only, the newly released Athlon 220GE and 240GE have a bit higher clock speed than the base 200GE, so they are priced a little higher.

AMD says to have added two more processors to Athlon 200GE family in order to provide a more demanding usage on day to day basis of reliable computing and advanced workloads like high-definition 720p gaming. AMD further said:
The AMD Athlon family of processors provides consumers with significantly better value and availability than the competition. Athlon 200GE processors offer up to 67 percent more graphics performance and up to two times greater power efficiency, delivering up to 84 percent faster high-definition PC gaming than the competition
The processors are good for everyday use with small to medium work load experience. They are not designed to deliver heavy workloads such as high-definition gaming or editing software. However, the newly released Athlon 220GE and Athlon 240GE should give a certain edge over Athlon 200GE processor.
