AMD ATHLON64 3000 WITH SAPPHIRE RADEON HD 3870 PERFORMANCE

"AMD Athlon64 3000 and Athlon64 X2 4200 game performance with a Sapphire Radeon HD 3870. We are going to find out if Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 requires a powerful processor like the Athlon64 X2 4200 or if Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 will run well with even a 1.8 Ghz Athlon64 3000. We will be using various benchmarks to show processor and video card performance but in the main we will be using game benchmarks. These include Lost Planet, World in Conflict, Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, Crysis, Trackmania Nations Forever and Sins of a Solar Empire."

AMD ATHLON64 X2 4200 AND AMD ATHLON64 3000

"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%."

"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."
