Having lost the leadership in the high-end market segment, AMD started conquering the low-end territory. Today we would like to take a closer look at the new Athlon 64 X2 3600+ that boasts the lowest price point of all the dual-core AMD solutions available in the market.
As we know from the previous tests, the gaming applications are quite sensitive to the size of single-core processor cache memory. In case of dual-core CPUs, this rule remains active. So, Athlon 64 X2 3600+ is on average 3%-5% behind Athlon 64 X2 3800+ in games. However, this performance difference is very unlikely to scare away potential AMD Athlon 64 X2 buyers.
