Well ... not exacly.

These DUAL core Phenom X2 (yes its branded as Athlon but it uses K10 core) uses 95W while QUAD core Phenom X4 uses 65W, not a very good TDP for a dual core CPU running at 2.3GHz.

Its assumed that AMD highered the default VCore to make it O/C easier, but I do not accept that anyway, it runs fine at 3.3GHz, but at 2.3GHz it should use 45W at most.

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
