It’s once again time for a processor review here at NH. Two processors both operating at the same speed – 2.2 GHz – are reviewed, namely AMD Athlon 64 3400+ and Athlon 64 FX-51. As many might know, the world premiere of the 3400+ is today, therefore a lot of focus will be put on this processor. We will compare it against the much more expensive FX-51 and Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz.
Something that might interest you is that we have not only tested the 32 bit performance, but also run some tests in Windows XP 64 bit Edition.
”Even if we’ve looked closer at both the Athlon 64 3400+ and the Athlon 64 FX51, we’ll be focusing on the former. AMD Athlon 64 3400+ is thus marketed officially today and even if it’s only a higher clocked Athlon 64 processor, it’s a notable increase in performance from AMD’s first modell, the 3200+.”
