http://www.torrentspy.com/ AMD to launch cheaper Athlon 64 X2 - [Computer Hardware] Submitted by [email="sendekyo@hotmail.com"]sendekyo[/email] on 7/30/2005 12:39:18 PM comments.gif1 Comment

AMD is close to shipping a more affordable addition to its superb Athlon 64 X2 architecture.

After the initial launch, which was out of the financial reach of many consumers, AMD have extended its line of Athlon 64 X2 processors with the 3800+. This fits at the bottom of the line up which already contains the 4200+, 4400+, 4600+ and 4800+ and we envisage that there will also be a 4000+ at some point, too.

The Athlon 64 X2 3800+ will be clocked at 2.0GHz and will feature 512KB of L2 cache on each core - totalling to 1MB - while It is based on the same core that is used for the 4200+ and 4600+.

The processors are not currently available to buy just yet, and there has been no official announcement from AMD either. However, AMD Zone came across this the product on pre-order from an American firm called Page Computers for a little under $370.

Dual cores just got a little bit cheaper on AMD side.

Sweet, If they were just a few bucks cheaper I would get one since I am a +3700 for $325.

Yeah, me too. The 3700+ I'm going to get will blow away the new X2 in gaming... for now. Maybe I'll decide to upgrade to dual core when the can match the speed of the single threaded processors, or when more games are designed to use the dual core processors.

Its nice to see them pricing them cheaper, probably so they can compete with Intel better.

The 3800+ dual core runs around a 3200+ in gaming. Not bad but a lot cheaper getting a 3200+ if your only doing gaming.
