Holy Crap... Are you guys confused yet?
Code: Select all
Pins Model No. Clock Cache HT
754 2800+ 1800MHz 512K 800MHz
754 3000+ 2000MHz 512K 800MHz
754 3200+ 2000MHz 1MB 800MHz
754 3200+ 2200MHz 512K 800MHz
754 3300+ 2400MHz 256K 800MHz
754 3400+ 2200MHz 1MB 800MHz
754 3400+ 2400MHz 512K 800MHz
754 3700+ 2400MHz 1MB 800MHz
939 3000+ 1800MHz 512K 1GHz
939 3200+ 2000MHz 512K 1GHz
939 3400+ 2200MHz 512K 800MHz
939 3500+ 2200MHz 512K 1GHz
939 3800+ 2400MHz 512K 1GHz

AMD is getting just as confusing as Intel's new naming scheme!

your forgetting two very important variables, price, and overclockablity. Thoses are the two things i look for first then i worry about all that other stuff. A hammer is a hammer, while more cache is a good thing its been shown that the amount of cache on the hammer accounts for very little difference except in some applications.

i think there is a formula. it is something like this:
------ X overclockability = y
where y=actual worth.
um..ok that formula sucks, but the bottom line is that the new numbers for both companies mean pretty much nothing. there are some processors and series of processors that OC better than others, and the only way to determine this is to do it, or wait for someone to do it and see what works and what doesn't.
this whole getting away from the MHZ battle is weird to me because this is what we all grew up on. also, we use a sequential numbering system and it's just ingrained in our heads. it's like horsepower. what if car companies started giving random numbers to tell how powerful an engine was. it would totally suck.
