  ActiveWin: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Processor- Review
Time: 00:01 EST/05:01 GMT | News Source: ActiveWin.com | Posted By: Byron Hinson

I have posted up my review of AMD's recently released AMD Athlon 64 5000+ X2 Processor. This is one of the first processors based on the new AM2 socket that AMD are now going to be moving forward with. Here is a small piece from the review:

AMD has been the king of 64-bit computing for some time now and no matter what Intel has attempted to throw in front of them, AMD have hurdled over it. With the release of the new AMD AM2 Motherboards and processors AMD are now not only pushing the envelope on the 64-bit and Dual Core front, they are reducing the amount of energy and power that the processors take up, thus producing quieter and cooler PC's. The big question is, has the wait for the new AM2 processors and motherboards been worth it? Do we see any benefit from using DDR2 memory compared to the old DDR2 on the previous Socket 939 processors, read on and we'll find out. This review will also concentrate on the future impact the processor will have when used with Windows Vista, we'll be putting it through its paces on the newly released beta 2 version of the upcoming Microsoft operating system.

Good Review Byron...

Only neg I have is I expect pretty graphs when reading a hardware review. Shaun of the Dead is an AWESOME movie and should be included in any hardware review!

Peace,
Ben

yeah, I'll get some graphs into the next one as I prefer it that way too, but due to my holiday I didn't get time to get any ready. Any suggestions for a good program to use for them!
