Model naming methodology[ edit ] The model naming scheme does not make it obvious how to AMD Athlon 64-processor one Turion with another, or even an Athlon The model name is two letters, a dash, and a two digit number for example, ML The two letters together designate a processor class, while the number represents a PR rating.

The first letter is M for single core processors and T for dual core Turion 64 X2 processors. The later in the alphabet that the second letter appears, the more the model has been designed for AMD Athlon 64-processor frugal power consumption. Take for instance, an MT and an ML But since 34 is greater than 30, the ML is faster than the MT The clock of the processors is significantly lower than desktop and other mobile counterparts to reach a low TDP, at 15W maximum for a single core x CPU at 1.


Sockets[ edit ] Socket Socket F FX: The onboard memory controller was not capable of running unbuffered non-registered memory in dual-channel mode at the time of release; as a stopgap measure, they introduced the Athlon 64 on Socketand brought out a non-multiprocessor version of the Opteron called the Athlon 64 FX, as a multiplier unlocked enthusiast part for Socketcomparable to Intel's Pentium 4 Extreme Edition for the high end market. Eventually Socket replaced Socket A for Semprons. We've spent the past AMD Athlon 64-processor weeks testing Hammer-based chips, including the Athlon 64 and its new big brother, the mighty Athlon 64 FX Not only that, but Intel slipped us a Pentium 4 3.

We can honestly say we were blown away by the performance of these new chips. The future is now. Read up to see how AMD Athlon 64-processor it can be. Nonetheless, Hammer is revolutionary, not so much because of what goes on inside the chip itself, but because of how it talks to the rest of the computer. We have dedicated most of our time and effort in preparing this review to empirical testing, so we're not able to cover Hammer's architectural innovations in as much detail as we'd like. Still, we'll hit some of the major points that make AMD's new processor distinctive.


Among them: The memory controller itself also runs at the speed of the CPU. As AMD Athlon 64-processor result, Hammer processors can access memory with very low latencies, opening up one of the most persistent bottlenecks to overall system performance.

Beyond the basic performance benefits, the movement of the memory controller on die has implications for the organization of the AMD Athlon 64-processor Hammer platform. Core logic chipsets no longer need to provide memory controllers, and the Hammer, strictly speaking, has no traditional front-side bus. Even more mind-bendingly, multiprocessor Hammer systems have individual banks of memory for each processor, so they should scale very well as processors are added. A packet-based chip-to-chip interconnect, HyperTransport links are pairs of 8-bit or bit unidirectional links running at speeds up to MHz. AMD Athlon 64-processor in a little DDR action, sending data twice per clock cycle, and you have an effective clock rate of 1. As implemented in Hammer, HyperTransport links have a maximum throughput of 6.

AMD's bit processor specifications

Hammer systems use HyperTransport for several things. Done right, HyperTransport should simplify motherboard design by replacing slower AMD Athlon 64-processor wider connections that require more traces to achieve similar results. In multiprocessor implementations, HyperTransport links between processors allow for inter-chip communications, as well. The first wave of Hammer chips all come with 1MB of L2 cache onboard, upping the ante by a factor of two.

Hammer's L1 cache sizes are unchanged from K7 at 64K for instructions and 64K for data. AMD's caches tend to be exclusive, and that's the case with Hammer; these caches don't replicate the contents of the AMD Athlon 64-processor cache.

With the L1 data and L2 caches combined, the Hammer chips' total effective data cache size is K. We've seen many times AMD Athlon 64-processor the impact larger caches have on performance. Jump to Athlon X2 Dual Core Processor L - Athlon 64 X2.

The Athlon 64 is an eighth-generation, AMDarchitecture microprocessor produced by AMD, released on September 23, It is the third processor to bear the name Athlon, and the immediate successor to the AMD Athlon 64-processor CPU clock rate‎: ‎ GHz to GHz.
