New processor naming and performance numbering scheme from AMD.

DailyTech - AMD Expands Upcoming Processor Branding

The new naming scheme designates the first letter as the processor
class. AMD currently has three processor classes for the new scheme G,
B and L. All G-class processors are designated as premium processors
under the Phenom X4 and X2 names. The B-class processors slot below the
G-class processors as an intermediate model. At the bottom of the AMD
ladder is the L-class processors. L-class processors carry the AMD
Athlon or Sempron names.

Brand layer Class Model
Phenom FX TBD
Phenom X4 GP-7xxx
Phenom X2 GS-6xxx
Athlon X2 BE-2xxx
Athlon X2 LS-2xxx
Sempron N/A LE-1xxx

The second letter in the model designates thermal design power class.
AMD P-class processors have TDPs greater than 65-watts; S-class
processors have TDPs of approximately 65-watt while E-class processors
have less than 65-watt TDPs.

AMD AXP-vintage PR naming scheme is pointless anyhow, now that Intel's
netburst is dead.
