We believe to be able to look back on an interesting comparison. Interesting, because he could emphasize some points clearly. That Athlon 64 3000+ introduced today, quite quietly partly showed up in bench mark on identical level to maximally 5.5 % behind the so far only base 754 processor, the Athlon 64 3200+. That is a partial lean projection/lead, which by 200 model is differentiated here points. But we lead before eyes that both processors set on the same processor clock and differ only by the size of the Level2 Caches, then, like very the architecture of this processor family from the larger Cache profit ourselves nevertheless very fast clearly, by far better than the past Athlon XP candidate.
Here we asked the question about the distinction possibility for the unversierten user, who is located in the computer store and would like themselves a new PC to buy in the article also. Finally the Athlon XP 3200+ on the paper suggests some achievement advantages opposite the Athlon 64 3000+. These are missing however, as our article showed. , over-clearly partly over 16%, than 3000+ characterized A64 the processor before the fastest Athlon XP processor can set itself.
And also in the comparison to the Pentium 4 rivals we experienced interesting: From 23 comparisons proceeded only one undecided, 11 for the Athlon 64 3000+ and just as many for the Pentium 4,3,0 GHz. In the long run thus a clear undecided, whereby it applies to consider that the many play applications were practical, which the Athlon 64 3000+ decided for itself, whereas the Pentium could decide 4 predominantly synthetic of bench mark and Multimedia -, as well as Rendering applications for itself. Thus, as we think, it remains a fair comparison. However the results for the Pentium look 4,3,2 GHz not very much better. From the 23 of bench mark 10 nevertheless went to the today's test candidate.
We come to the price structuring: The Athlon 64 is offered from today on for a wholesale dealer price of 218 US dollar with acceptance by 1000 pieces by AMD. First road price listing in the World Wide Web were already past Friday. The determined prices showed thereby enormous spans. The most favorable offerers moved on 235 euro, the most expensive on 275 euro. It may be assumed that that the prices lie initially still somewhat highly, however on a usual level will then settle down. We finally see as end price region from approximately 235 to 240 euro. And this price is most attractive for this processor, considers one that the Athlon strikes 64 3200+ at present with approximately 370 to 380 euro (Tray version) to beech and a Pentium 4 with 3.0 GHz at present for approximately 270 euro is available.
Possibly now finally the knot and the paragraph of the bases 754 processors and Main boards in the final customer range burst rise clearly with the introduction of these Athlon 64 CCU. We are at least here very confident, because the Athlon 64 3000+ supplies the performance necessary for it at likewise the mass-market-suited price necessary for it.
