AMD's move to 65nm has brought the opportunity to provide big power savings via their new Brisbane processors.   The two dual core models, the BE-2350
which runs at 2.1GHz and the

BE-2300 at 1.9GHz

both have 64K of L1 instruction space, and 64K of L1 data cache per core.  The L2 has a 512KB cache for each core as well, so there has been no real reduction there.  Drop by HotHardware for a look at how well they managed to reduce power and heat, and also make sure to
