Default Athlon 64 3800+ with 939 pins reviewed @ X86-Secret

Quote:
FRENCH SITE X86 Secrets said it has reviewed an Athlon 64 which uses the famous 939 pins everyone has waited for, for a while.
The 939 pin version of the Athlon 64 is supposed to launch at Computex next week.

The question that everyone is posed, it is of course what it is performances. To speak frankly, those are not a revolutionist and the profit brought by the controller Dual Channel is rather weak on the majority of the current applications. On average, and at frequency equalizes, one can consider that Dual Channel offers a profit of performances ranging between 0% and 5% according to applications'. AMD A included/understood well besides since P-Rating applied is very correctly proportioned and that Athlon 64 3500+ is very close in term to performances that Athlon 64 3400+, in spite of the controller Double channel. Not a revolution thus, but an awaited and beneficial evolution.
no need to wait for S939 it seems

what to think of this...

we see in gaming environments, the only reason for us mere mortals to buy these incessantly expensive machines, the advantage at the same speeds of the athlon socket 754 xp 3400+ over the socket 939 3500+. it seems the double cache wins out on the double channel at the same clockspeed...
quite an interesting thing...

we see the 3800+ having some advantage just due to its clockspeed. but as it will probably not overclock any further then a socket 754 xp3400+, it seems like a waste of money to go this way.

THE hot item is still a socket 754 a64 3200+ on some nice cooling

I think a P3-500 will do over 4 with a Mach II GT


for the mobo question, answer lies here I think: http://www.x86-secret.com/articles/cpu/s939/s939-2.htm

somewhere
