AMD XP uses a memory channel controller located on the motherboard. The Athlon 64 uses a single channel memory controller that is integrated into the CPU.

To get an idea research when L2 cache used to be on the motherboard and the performance boost that was obtained when the L2 cache was integrated into the CPU.

You also have to consider that the AMD Athlon 64's benefit from about 4 years of CPU technilogy advances in superscaling and branch prediction.

Now for a real boost AMD has new Athlon 64 CPU's for socket 939 with integrated dual channel memory controllers.
