Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ 65nm Processor Review  - AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ 65nm Processor Review
Wed, March 07 2007 | 3:44AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"AMD's overall processor lineup is still very attractive to mainstream users, because well... there aren't many cheap Intel Core 2 Duo's yet. What's nice about AMD's dual core K8 CPU lineup is that you can find a dual core processor quite easily, no matter what your budget is. Starting from the mainstream Athlon64 X2 3600+ to the high end X2 6000+, there is a dual core Athlon64 X2 processor for you no matter how much you can spend.

The Socket AM2 AMD Athlon64 X2 4800+ processor offers us a decent mix of performance and value, with a retail price of $253 CDN ($215 US, £112GBP) it certainly won't break the bank either. The Athlon64 X2 4800+ is built on AMD's 65 nanometer manufacturing process, and this means it will help to address the power and heat issue that PCSTATS has been commenting on for the last six months. We do like it when processors become more powerful and more energy efficient, after all.

Aside from the die shrink from 90nm to 65nm, the K8 architecture is identical to that of the Athlon64 X2 5000+ processor PCSTATS examined previously."
