    HEXUS.beans - World Exclusive – AMD Dual Core desktop processor details

    Posted by PD on the front page:

    What's reasonably well known is that AMD is scheduled to launch its dual-core Server and professional workstation Opteron processors later in the year.

    However details of what's set to be let loose to hunt down Intel's recently announced Pentium Extreme Edition 840 has up till now been unclear.

    HEXUS can exclusively reveal that this is to be named the AMD Athlon 64 X2

    It will be available at least in the following models:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+

    The flagship AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ will have both its cores operating at 2.4GHz, the same frequency as the AMD Athlon 64 4000+, and we'll be surprised if this doesn't rape the already impressive Pentium Extreme Edition 840 we reviewed here.

    More later...
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

      • Dell Ultrasharp 2709W + 2001FP
      • Internet:
      • Be*Unlimited 20Mbps
    The performance will be like 5% higher than two Opteron 244,246 and 248 (1.8, 2.0, 2.2Ghz)
    I assume they have 1M cache so based on 512K cache extra = 0.2Ghz rule.
    (Based on A64 vs Opteron and Opteron SC vs Opteron DC tests)

    I dare say 4800+ will have a price tag of £500~650 or it will undercut Dual Opteron line.
    £400~500 for 4600+ and £220~330 for 4400+ (All calculated based on Dual Opteron price)
    EDIT: Those price I estimated is ex.vat
