Test de l’athlon 64 2800+

PC Perspective a testé le nouvel athlon 64 2800+ (en anglais), l’article commence ainsi :

When AMD released the Athlon 64 3000+ processor, it was the first time that I can remember AMD not largely publicizing processor release.  The Athlon 64 3000+ offered a good value to the consumer, but also was the beginning of the end for the initial generation of Athlon 64 processors.  The 3000+, and the new 2800+, both only feature 512 KB of L2 cache, where the initial release of the 3200+ and 3400+ models of the Athlon 64 line both feature 1 MB of L2 cache.  The new Athlon 64 processors brought up the talk of the next core of the Athlon 64 processors, and it was later revealed that indeed the next interation of the Athlon 64 processor (not including the FX line) were going to only feature 512 KB of cache.
