AMD unveils Athlon 64 FX-57

Posted on Monday, June 27 2005 @ 13:32:33 CEST by

AMD today launched the brand new AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 processor for power hungry enthusiasts and hardcore gamers. The company is also proud to announce the immediate availability of this new single-core processor. AMD claims gamers don't need dual-core processors yet because today's games are single-threaded.

“AMD recognizes that today’s games are single-threaded. Users who crave the absolute best performance on 3D games and extreme applications can experience realistic physics and lighting, as well as gripping artificial intelligence and sound, with the single-core AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 processor,” said Bob Brewer, corporate vice president, Desktop Business, Microprocessor Solutions Sector (MSS), AMD.

The company will launch a dual-core Athlon 64 FX when the first multi-threaded games become available.

The Athlon 64 FX-57 is made on a 90nm process and runs at 2.7GHz with 1MB L2 cache. The maximum thermal power is 104W.

The AMD Athlon 64 FX57 is available immediately worldwide. The price in 1,000 unit quantities is $1,031.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 reviews:

  • Hexus
  • Bit Tech

  • TechSpot

    They all seem to agree that the FX-57 is currently the fastest gaming processor on the market. But the price is so high that you might be better of with a dual-core Athlon 64 X2.
