    Dothan V FX55/57 review

    mini review i put up on another site a few months ago, some might be interested:



    a small chart showing some info with the p-m thrown in

    might not be all right but i tried my best.

    I was a bit bored last night and thought i'd do some dothan testing.

    Basically im using a PCI-E asus board with a p-m 750 (1.86Ghz) and the ct479 adaptor.

    CPU cost me £130, adaptor £25 and the board £60.
    altogether a small sum of £215ish, basically a third of the cost of a fx57

    while talking about the fx57, i may aswell use that as a baseline to compare to

    im using the p-m 750 which has a native multiplier of 14. so matching it to 200mhz gives it a perfect 2800mhz, same speed as a fx57.

    note that the multiplier can be lowered in windows via est / clockgen to give higher performance, but im not interested in that at the moment.
    also note cpu vcore is set to 1.55 in bios, for some reason it shows higher in cpu-z

    looking around on the net i cant find any reviews of the fx57 coupled with a 7800gtx, so im using the next best thing. a fx55 with a 7800gtx from thg.

    ive tried to keep the stuff the same for a fair comparison, im using the 77.72 drivers, other than that i have used the exact same settings as thg. no lod bias, no tweaks, just the standard whql drivers.
    clocks are default too @ 450/1250.

    P.S i didnt do a fresh install of windows, just my regular media centre.

    used:
    3dmark 01
    3dmark 03
    3dmark 05
    aquamark

    have fun

    Pingu,

    Although this comparison isn't all that scientific I have to say I'm impressed with your results, do you have a lucky chip or is this a common overclock?

    its common with a good 90% of these chips. its ment to show a comparison of clock to clock comparing the dothan to the amd's top end

    most clocks range between 2.5ghz to 2.9ghz on air.
    2.9 is on the extreme end ofcourse

    even my trusty 715 does 2.75Ghz on air. (from 1.5Ghz)

    Pingu are you using the stock HS/F that the socket adaptor provides?

    I'm mega interested getting a pentium-m now after the dissapointment of my 2500-m setup, tbh I'd be happen even with a 2.5 overclock!

    Intresting read, its made me re-think my plans for a X2 A64 system, thanks!

    Also, shuttle have a pentium-m barebones on the way (http://global.shuttle.com/Product/Barebone/SD11G5.asp), could make a nice little new system!

    There's also the Aopen MZ series. smaller than the shuttles and about &#163;100 or so cheaper. However neither are designed for overclocking they are for those who want a small quiet pc (I'm getting one for a MCE system in the front room).

    With careful planning they are a great value bang for a buck system. &#163;500 gets an awfully decent near silent htpc.
