AMD ATHLON64 X2 4200
"Today we will be reviewing AMD Athlon64 X2 4200 processor which uses the Manchester core and we will compare it to AMD Athlon64 3500 Venice. Both processors operate at 2.2Ghz and have 512K Level 2 Cache so the results will clearly show the benefits of Dual Core. The review shows performance of modern games software and a varied mix of benchmarks!"
TAKE MULTI-TASKING TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL WITH THE ATHLON64 X2 4200!
"AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core puts the power of dual-core technology on the desktop. Dual-core processors contain two processing cores, residing on one chip, that perform calculations on two streams of data, thereby increasing efficiency and speed while running multiple programs and the new generation of multi-threaded software."
"For the end-user this means a significant increase in response and performance when running multiple applications simultaneously. AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor outperforms the highest-performing AMD Athlon 64 4000+ single-core processor on multi-tasking benchmarks by up to 30%."
BETTER MULTI-TASKING MEANS INCREASED OFFICE PRODUCTIVITY
"Productivity in today's workplace requires smooth, efficient and seamless multi-tasking. AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor delivers TRUE multi-tasking, allowing users to switch from one program to another without pausing for the computer to catch up and reducing annoying processing pauses. The end result is an increase in office productivity performance of 22% on average."
SETTING THE PACE IN DIGITIAL MEDIA
"Digital media software demands simultaneous processing of data streams, the perfect use for the incredible multi-tasking power of AMD64 dual-core technology. Dual-core technology is like having two processors working together, each one taking care of different applications, so power-users actually experience greater performance when multiple applications are running. Digital media enthusiasts can usher in the next generation of digital media software for amazing high-definition video and photo editing, content creation, and audio mixing. With AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor, your PC will perform up to 80% faster than a single-core AMD Athlon 64 4000+ processor on the latest power-hungry digital media software applications."
SMOOTH AND EFFICIENT UPGRADES
"Additionally, the elegant design of AMD64 architecture allowed for the planning of dual-core processors from the ground up, which means that AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor is designed to fit in the same 939-pin infrastructure as single-core processors. All that is required is a BIOS update, saving our partners the costs of redesigns and obsolete inventory."
ALL THE PROVEN BENEFITS OF AMD64 TECHNOLOGY
"Enhanced Virus Protection is a feature of AMD64 technology. Enhanced Virus Protection feature in AMD64 processors, in conjunction with certain operating systems help to prevent the spread of certain viruses, like MSBlaster and Slammer, significantly reducing the cost and down-time associated with similar viruses and improving the protection of computers and personal information against certain PC viruses."
AMD ATHLON64 PROCESSOR ARCHITECTURE PERFORMANCE
"HyperTransport technology can increase overall system performance by removing I/O bottlenecks, increasing system bandwidth, and reducing system latency. A fully integrated DDR memory controller helps speed access to memory by offering the processor a direct connection to the main memory. As a result, end users can enjoy quicker application loading and extraordinary application performance."
READY FOR THE 64-BIT FUTURE
"Like all the processors in AMD Athlon 64 family, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor is designed for people who want to stay at the forefront of technology and for those who depend on their PCs to keep them connected, informed, and entertained. Systems based on AMD Athlon 64 processors are able to deliver leading-edge performance for demanding productivity and entertainment software today and in the future."
"With AMD64 technology, AMD Athlon 64 processor is fully compatible with existing software, while enabling a seamless transition to 64-bit applications. Both 32- and 64-bit applications can run virtually simultaneously and transparently on the same platform. AMD64 technology enables new, cinematic computing experiences and capabilities, in addition to increased performance. AMD64 technology allows end users to take advantage of new innovations such as real-time encryption, more life-like games, accurate speech interfaces, cinema-quality graphic effects, and easy-to-use video and audio editing."
