TBREAK took a look at the AM2 3500+ processor from AMD:
DDR2 modules are capable or reaching much higher speeds than your standard DDR which has an official top speed of 400MHz. At the moment, these AM2 CPUs support double that speed- or DDR2-800MHz. However, these high frequency modules tend to have higher latencies which hurts AMD CPUs more than Intel because of the integrated memory controller.

We managed to acquire a sample of the Athlon64 3500+ AM2 CPU and decided to quickly test a few of our standard applications. However, keep in mind that the numbers we’re posting are from a beta CPU using a beta motherboard with a beta BIOS. Lets look at the CPU-Z screenshot of the CPU.
