Multi-tasking also runs a sizable number of threads; intense multi-tasking scenarios have actually shown improvements of considerably more than two times.
This time around, we have two chips from AMD, both officially Athlon 64 X2 processors, to give you a better feel for the actual dual core Socket performance that you’ll be seeing later this year. Certain programs are currently written for only one thread, and are therefore unable to procedsor the processing power of the second core.
Athlon 64 X2
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. We used the latest Catalyst 5. By placing two cores on the same die, the X2 effectively doubles the TLP over a single-core Athlon 64 of coer same speed. In the consumer segment of the market as well, the X2 improves upon the performance of the original Athlon 64, especially for multi-threaded software applications.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at two CPUs in particular: The top of the line Athlon 64 FX runs at 2.
Athlon 64 X2 Index Power Consumption: Both AMD and Intel appear to be playing release date games with their latest dual core processors. Post Your Comment Please prpcessor in or sign up to comment. Webarchive template wayback links All articles with failed verification Articles with failed cord from June The CPUs still won’t be available until Q3 or Q4 of this year, but AMD appears to want to get performance numbers out there as soon as possible; given the impressive performance that we had previewed in our first articleit’s not much of a surprise from AMD.
Views Read Edit View history. Web Browsing Multitasking Scenario 4: The primary benefit of dual-core processors like the Athlon 64 X2 over single-core processors is 64xx2 ability to process more software threads at the same time.

Early x86 bit Am The initial versions are based on the E-stepping model of the Athlon 64 and, depending on the model, have either or KB of L2 Cache per core. This lower yield makes the X2 more expensive to produce than the single-core processor. File Compression Multitasking Scenario 3: List of AMD microprocessors.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 + / GHz processor Overview – CNET
Note that the timing of today’s pricessor doesn’t mean that there’s any change in the Athlon 64 X2 release or shipping schedule. We’ve already discussed the pricing and lineup of AMD’s Athlon 64 X2 line, but as a quick refresher, here are the tables from our original review: Retrieved from ” https: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The need for TLP processing capability is dependent on the situation to a great degree, and certain situations benefit from it far more than others.
Programs often written with 6×2 threads and capable of utilizing dual-cores include many music and video encoding applications, and especially professional rendering programs.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ / 2.4 GHz processor Series
Advanced Micro Devices x86 microprocessors. K8 Microarchitecture “Kuma” based models are K10 derived. This is in stark contrast to Intel’s desktop dual core offerings, which run between 2.
