AMD completed the transition to finer 90nm production process, and the market welcomed the first Athlon 64 processors based on the new Winchester core. We would like to offer you a detailed investigation of their functional peculiarities, performance, overclocking potential, heat dissipation and power consumption. Read more in our review!
Athlon 64 processor family has always been very successful in games. The new Winchester core doesn’t spoil this picture. Only in FarCry its performance is somewhat lower than that of NewCastle. However, the performance difference between different processor cores in this game is quite small. In all other games, Socket 939 processors on Winchester core outperform their 130nm counterparts for both: Socket 939 and Socket 754 platforms. The only exception here is the Socket 939 Athlon 64 3000+, which is very often slower than the Socket 754 Athlon 64 3000+ because of the 200MHz lower actual core clock.
