AMD has overclocked its top gaming processor to 2.8GHz. Besides, the Athlon 64 FX is now based on the new 90nm San Diego core which brings in SSE3 support, improved overclockability and reduced heat dissipation. But are these things worth paying over $1000 for? Find the answer in our report!
AMD’s processors have traditionally been good in Business Winstone 2004. The Athlon 64 FX-57 improves on their results further, mostly thanks to its higher 2.8GHz clock rate. In SYSmark 2004, however, the new processor is not a leader because this benchmark simulates the user’s working with several applications simultaneously. Pentium 4 processors that support Hyper-Threading technology are better suited to this kind of load.
