Athlon 64 FX 51 versus Pentium 4 3.2GHz Extreme Edition!

Posted on Monday, September 22 2003 @ 06:21:12 CEST by

The French guys from X86-Secret have posted a review of the Athlon 64! In the review they compare the Athlon 64 3200+ (2.0GHz) with an Athlon 64 FX 51 (2.2GHz) together with some older AMD and Intel CPUs, and also the newly announced Pentium 4 3.2GHz Extreme Edition! Like always it is a neck to neck race.. In some benchmarks AMD wins, while in others Intel wins.
The purpose of second part of our trilogy, this article is to compare the performances of Athlon 64 with its principal rivals. Having a final platform now, we can note the results of the new racehorse of AMD. After quickly having flown over the improvement brought by K8 architecture (will return we there in detail in the 3rd part), we will present the platforms of tests as well as the various software used. As we wanted this test most complete possible, we compared Athlon 64 with Pentium 4, but also in Opteron and Athlon XP. In guest star , we will accomodate even new Pentium 4 "Extreme Edition"... Once the protocol of clearly definite test, we will be able to pass to the tests to be strictly accurate in many benchmarks and many situations in order to make us an opinion of the performances of the last born of AMD.

We will finish by an outline of the capacities of overclocking of the various processors (Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, but also Pentium 4 EE) before concluding with full knowledge of the facts. Without waiting more, let us proceed.
