Coupled with the new processors, a new chipset has also been added to the portfolio.

The corresponding chipset for the Intel platform has a marketing name of Radeon Xpress series. To my surprise, a legacy serial connector was chosen over a parallel port on the rear IO plate. It appears that external SATA is beginning to become more common place as well.

It looks as though my resources were incorrect, as far as the two motherboards having the same processor socket. It features densely packed aluminum fins, an 80mm fan, a copper base, and hamker for better thermal dissipation. Core voltage stability was excellent during heavy load. March Learn how and when to remove this template message. I was able to maintain Prime95 stability on both cores at default Vcore. Physically look at the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip. Wmd FX is the only chip still set to operate at 1.

For years AMD has been branded as hhammer more than another follower, always looking to Intel for direction. This needs prime exposure out there on the web.


This sounds like one of those store bought computers – Dell, HP, Asus, Acer, etc – is there a brand and model number available if so – these sites will have all the drivers for the particular model. Overall system power consumption should also be lowered quite considerably due to the use of DDR2 memory.

The last-generation RD chipset will still be the principal product for the enthusiast segment. This would be in line with what happened to Socket not long ago when the Athlon 64 moved to socket Featuring an optional chipswt DDR2 side-port memory with maximum MiB [8] capacity as local frame buffer.

Want Answer 0 Clicking imv will make more experts see the question and we will remind you when it gets answered. Motherboard chipsets List of AMD chipsets. After setting boot priority I began the very familiar and dull task of installing Windows XP.

AMD’s Hammer Architecture – Making Sense of it All

Archived from the original PDF on February 18, I think there will inevitably be a lot of disappointed folks out there who really wanted to see huge performance gains from AM2. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

I definitely would not recommend selling your modern system and jumping on the AM2 bandwagon looking for performance. This gave me MHz, a delta of only 0. Although very rare since Hmmer and memory smd are usually kept somewhat in syncit is possible for a lack of FSB bandwidth to slow down this part of the memory read.


This particular benchmark is very sensitive to memory performance. Out of curiosity, I tried that option and was dumped to an unknown speed that was slower chipswt DDR When the CPU executes a read from system memory the command is first sent over the FSB to the North Bridge of the chipset which then hands it off to its integrated memory controller.

Much more likely are inefficiencies within the North Bridge and its memory controller which would add costly delays to the retrieval of data from memory.

Hammet Question Is there any way to install more than 2 gig memory? Once again, the delta is negligible with the AM2 just slightly ahead.

Since this benchmark tests cache as well as memory, there is a cchipset chance that data can be found in the extra high-speed L2 cache on these models. In my personal opinion, AM2 is a total success. Separating CPU clocks by only MHz allows AMD to have much more choice in their product lineup, and allows them to continue with their existing performance naming scheme.

The high MHz clock speed helped to offset the looser timings. Finally my PC got up to speed! The next generation [chipset] family will not feature the CrossFire-ready RD version.
