In the past few CPU reviews we have taken a close look at the 3500+ Venice core Athlon 64, and the 3200+ Venice core. We found each CPU to be a good overclocker, and to be reasonably priced. The Venice core brings with it an enhanced 90nm process with SSE3 and better memory support/compatibility. It also brings a lower operating temperature. Today we add the Athlon 64 3000+ Venice core to the list of CPUs we have tested from that code class, and compare them all to the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ for fun.
