  ActiveWin.com: AMD Athlon 64 3800 CPU - Review
Time: 00:01 EST/05:01 GMT | News Source: ActiveWin.com | Posted By: Robert Stein

Byron has posted up our review of the recently released AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Processor. This is one of the chips that supports Windows XP Service Pack 2's Data Execution Protection thanks to AMD's 64-Bit Chips, it's also one of the first chips to use Socket 939. This will be the first of many upcoming processors and internal hardware reviews to show up on the site, so more and more comparison pieces will see the light in the near future. Here is a piece from the review:

First up we have a die shrunk from 193mm≤ to 144mm≤, although the FX53 uses the larger 193mm≤ due to the cache size on the chip. Not only that, we get quite a rise in Mhz this time round although not quite as much as some people may have expected especially if they are comparing it to a top of the range Pentium 4, which runs a whole 1ghz faster than the fastest AMD processor. As usual the speed of the chip in raw Mhz isn't always what makes it a good processor.

This is the one I want :)

Who can figure out Intel anymore. I sure can't, and I've been doing this for 24 years.

It's almost like Intel is purposely confusing their product and product pipelines so people can't make educated decisions any more.

I briefly read somewhere about an SP2/Athlon 64 compatibility issue. What is that all about, and is it a big deal?

Can't say I have had any compatibility problems with the 64-Bit processor and Service Pack 2

TechLarry: The problem occurs with the Sigma Designs older DVD decoders that predate Windows XP. The buffer overflow protection built into SP2 works only with Athlon 64 and Intel's forthcoming 64 bit extension CPU's. I personally havenít had a problem with my Athlon 64 system running XP SP2. In fact, it is more stable. Windows XP hasnít crashed mu system since I installed SP2 on August 10th.

#7 - no problems here with either the 3000 or 3800 processors running Windows XP SP2, not one crash on the 3800 during my review either (only ran Windows XP SP2 final during that review)

Bob,

Thanks for the update. None of that here so no worries :)
