COMMENT "The integrated DDR memory controller gives the Socket 939 Athlon64 processors the edge because the Athlon64 3000 is only 2% behind the 600Mhz faster Athlon64 3400."
COMMENT "The Athlon64 3500 takes an early lead beating the Athlon64 3400 by 9% which is especially impressive when you consider that the Athlon64 3400 has a 200Mhz speed advantage over the Athlon64 3500."

COMMENT "It's a mixed result for the Athlon64 3500 and although it beats the Athlon64 3400 by 6% with the CPU ALU test the Athlon64 3500 loses the CPU FPU test to the Athlon64 3400 by 10%. It appears that the integrated DDR memory controller is of little use with the CPU FPU test."

COMMENT "It appears that the FPU Single and Double Precision tests favour a high clockspeed because the Athlon64 3400 beats the Athlon64 3500 by 9% to 10%. Even the Sempron 3400 with it's lower 256K L2 Cache but higher clockspeed is able to beat the Athlon64 3000 by 10% to 11%."

COMMENT "This memory bandwidth benchmark favours the DDR memory controller found on the Socket 939 Athlon64 processors and the Athlon64 3500 beats the Athlon64 3400 by between 28% to 29%. As further proof of the power of the DDR memory controller even the Athlon64 3000 beats the Athlon64 3400 by 12%."
