AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 Review

Posted on Thursday, March 18 2004 @ 22:37:41 CET by LSDsmurf

Almost 6 months have passed since the initial release of the AMD Athlon 64. In September '03, AMD released two new desktop processors, the Athlon 64 3200+ clocked at 2.0GHz and a premium product dubbed the Athlon 64 FX-51, clocked at 2.2GHz. The FX and standard Athlon 64 shared the same base architecture, but with the FX-51 AMD kept the 128-bit memory controller found in their Opteron line of server CPUs intact. The standard Athlon 64's memory controller is 64-bits wide and doesn't require the use of registered DIMMs. The FX-51 was to be AMD's premium product, targeted at hardcore enthusiasts who crave the highest performance available. We took an in-depth look at the new architecture, features and performance of the Athlon 64 FX in this launch article. If you haven't already done so, please check it out, as it contains a myriad of useful information pertaining to the new processor we'll be looking at today, the AMD Athlon 64-FX 53.
