Socket AM2 CPUs three to five per cent faster

@ 2006/03/15
WE HAVE seen many AM2 socket CPUs. Most of them are running at 2.4GHZ and are showcased with DDR 2 800 memory. That is the only way to show any kind of performance difference from the DDR 400 based existing 939 CPUs.

The guys that ran some benchmarks on those machines confirmed that you can expect three to five per cent performance increase and that is about it.

most likely a typo

However, the price of the DDR 2 will drop and will make it more accessible for the general consumers but DDR 800 wont be anywhere close to mainstream.
