Default AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 @ OCModShop

The FX-60 is AMD’s newest and most powerful desktop dual core processor solution. This chip is based on the Toledo core and runs at an impressive 2.6GHz with a 13x unlocked multiplier and 200MHz HTT speed. This is the fastest production AMD dual core processor available, and is a pretty impressive piece of hardware with an equally impressive price tag.

In general, a dual-core processor does not benefit the hardcore gamer, as most PC games are not optimized for multi-threaded processing. However, both ATI and nVidia have released drivers supporting dual-core processors (driver version 81.97), which provide a noticeable performance improvement in most games. The hardcore PC enthusiast now has a no-compromise solution for games and applications. Because the working frequency of this new FX is 200Mhz lower than its single-core brother (the FX-57), it may not perform as well with workloads that are not multi-threaded. It is 200Mhz faster than the fastest single-core X2 4800+, which runs at 2.4GHz.
