As you can see above, the default memory frequencies can vary from processor to processor. The high MHz clock speed helped to offset the looser timings. Both chipsets in this family are fully compatible with the Windows Aero interface and are Windows Vista Premium certified. Socket lasted a surprisingly long time for a socket anyhow and even dual-core support was implemented without any physical changes to the platform. The manual did not provide any clear information. Since the controller is literally a part of the CPU die, it operates at the exact same frequency as the processor core.

If the memory is operating at twice the speed, but doing half the amount of work per cycle due to increased latency —is there really a performance benefit? Amd Hammer Ddr2 Imc As we begin to see more low latency DDR, chipse will no longer be an issue at all.

AMD has significantly reduced the power consumption of their entire AM2 lineup compared to their predecessors. For years AMD has been branded as nothing more than another follower, always looking to Intel for direction. There is very little you can do about the second half of this process since it deals almost entirely with the type of memory used and the operating frequency of the memory bus.

Obviously there will be a price premium to pay for these efficient processors, but again, the consumer can xmd make the choice.


This very high speed operation coupled with direct access to the main memory contributes to the low memory latencies experienced on the K8 platforms. I love the picture of the hardware on the removable mobo tray. The head to head comparison in the previous section was done at 2. The AM2 based processors lead the pack in memory bandwidth.

The free and opensource driver for AMD graphics in the linux kernel supports both 3D acceleration and hardware decoders as of kernel 3. Posted on Jul 03, There really should not be any technical difference ajd limitation between single core and dual core processors to warrant this statement. Again, it was nice to see some fairly linear results.

You can’t post conmments that contain an email address. The fact that the memory is operating at MHz likely contributed to this.

It also controls high speed graphics technology. The 4-pin CPU power connector is also in a fairly inconvenient location on the board.

AMD 690 chipset series

I believe that this chip could hit close to 3GHz on quality air cooling and higher voltage. Clearly, two totally different platforms with different mainboards makes for an unfair comparison to begin with but my goal vdr2 to ensure that all other variables were controlled as tightly as possible.


Although it is unfortunate to have lost consistency across all models, the largest delta seems to be only 33MHz. The corresponding chipset for the Intel platform has a marketing name of Radeon Xpress series.

You can find it at the following URL: In any rate, faster DDR2 will make for a faster Athlon 64 processor. The last-generation RD chipset will still be the principal product for the enthusiast segment. I did not run into any surprises during installation. Overall memory performance is generally determined by two variables: Raw processing power is what matters most when crunching tinker WUs.

Since this is not possible, the memory controller will automatically round the divisor up to a value of 7.

SuperPI is generally very dependant on high performance memory for the best scores. As mentioned yammer, I am uncertain if any there is anything in place to enforce that specification.

Small low-profile copper blocks chipseg found on the north and south bridges. As a result, VMMs are generally very complex and demanding on system resources.
