AMD Athlon FX-60 ReviewPosted on 2006-04-19 15:31:39 by LSDsmurf
What happens if the fastest core speed is combined with the most advanced technology - in this case featuring dual cores? For single threaded applications, the obvious answer is nothing much but fortunately, it appears that we are finally getting away from DOS and migrating towards a world dominated by massive multitasking. Dual cores, even more than single cores, have a sheer insatiable hunger for data which increases with any additional speedstep. Using the HyperTransport interface grants the AMD design a substantial advantage over Intel's front side bus with its bidirectional data bus. All of this combined with refined silicon mixtures to further lower the power consumption of the CPU promise the makings of another champion: Enter the AMD Athlon FX-60.
