Advanced Micro Devices also has an event in San Francisco, California, these days, to demonstrate some of its innovations. One of the paramount technologies showcased during the show is the Athlon 64 FX-53 processor delivering 30% additional performance in 64-bit mode in Far Cry game.

The new AMD Athlon FX-53 processor presumably destined to come out late next month will be packed in 940-pin package and will require a couple of registered PC3200 DIMM modules to show its real power with dual-channel memory controller. At 2.40GHz, the AMD64 architecture featuring large caches, powerful FPU and ALU units, efficient pipeline as well as micro-architectural optimizations along with SSE2 technology support would allow the microprocessor to be the most powerful CPU in the desktop market today.

AMD’s Athlon 64 and 64 FX microprocessors are produced in Fab 30 based in Dresden, Germany using a 0.13 micron fabrication process with Silicon-on-Insulator technology initially developed by IBM to boost semiconductors’ performance efficiency. Due to a very complex design, AMD’s Athlon 64-series chips cannot boast with really excellent scalability in terms of clock-speeds.

2.40GHz is going to be a pretty popular speed bin for AMD this year, probably, AMD pins a lot of hopes on its own ability to achieve proper yields on such core-speed. According to people familiar with Sunnyvale, California-based chipmaker’s plans, AMD Athlon 64 3400+ (754-pin, 512KB L2 cache), AMD Athlon 64 3700+ (939-pin, 512KB L2 cache), AMD Athlon 3700+ (754-pin, 1MB L2 cache) as well as AMD Athlon 64 FX-53 (940/939-pin, 1MB L2 cache) processors are to be clocked at 2.40GHz.

According to a report from Germany-based web-site tecCHANNEL, AMD is demonstrating the Athlon FX-53 central processing unit in a system with a beta version of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Extended Systems installed. According to AMD, the AMD64 technology allows to boost performance in Far Cry game by about 30%, although, no actual speed figures are given.
