Investigations into Athlon X2 Overclocking

We started our recent look at overclocking platforms with the Venice 3000+ and 3200+ processors. Using a $130-$180 processor, we showed that it was possible to come near the performance offered by the extremely fast and extremely expensive FX-57. Actually, we came closer to FX-55 performance, but for about 1/6 the price, that’s still very impressive

We’re looking at the Athlon X2 3800+, as you can probably already guess. However, we started work on the benchmarks quite a while back and there are actually a couple of newer options that are potentially higher performing. The new Opteron 165/170 chips use the Denmark core, which is basically the workstation version of the Toledo. While the 165 comes with a lower default clock speed, we would venture to say that it has the potential to overclock just as high as the X2 3800+ that we’ll be using in this article, and likely even higher.
