AMD showed off dual-core Athlon 64 processors

Posted on Thursday, February 24 2005 @ 18:49:56 CET by

AMD yesterday showcased its dual-core AMD Athlon 64 processors. Dual-core processors should perform as well as higher clocked single-core processors, while using less energy.

Because AMD uses existing manufacturing processes to produce dual-core AMD64 processors, the power envelope for AMD dual-core processors is designed to fit current sockets and power infrastructures. Additionally, this level of compatibility eliminates the need for costly platform redesigns, and this enables a more cost-effective dual-core technology transition for customers.

AMD’s industry-standard, dual-core processors are a natural extension of AMD64 technology with Direct Connect Architecture. The Direct Connect Architecture connects multiple processors, the memory controller and the I/O directly to the central processing unit, helping to eliminate the bottlenecks often inherent in a front-side bus.
