AMD’s AM2: Athlon 64 FX-62 & X2 5000+

Lots of new products…

AMD is making the transition to DDR2 in one fell swoop today, announcing a total of eighteen new processors in a top-to-bottom launch. The new processors include eight dual-core Athlon 64 X2 processors, three single-core Athlon 64’s along with six Sempron processors aimed at the mainstream market. It is the first time since the days of Socket A that AMD’s full range of processors have all been on the same socket. This makes for great upgrading opportunities, allowing users to upgrade to faster CPUs without the need for a completely new platform after the initial investment.

All of the chips support the standard AMD features that we’ve come to expect. These include AMD Cool’n’Quiet technology, MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, Enhanced 3DNow!, NX Bit anti-virus protection and also x86-64 extensions. The new Athlon 64 chips — both dual core and single core — also support AMD’s Pacifica Virtualisation Technology, too. This feature is not included in the new Socket AM2 Semprons based on the Manila core, though.

Dual-Core Athlon 64 X2 Processors:

The majority of AMD’s lineup has made the transition to dual-core — this is something that AMD said it would do over time. The transition was almost complete when the company announced the final addition to its Socket 939 Athlon 64 FX-series — Athlon 64 FX-60. This was the first of AMD’s FX-series processors to make the move to dual-core. Not surprisingly, Athlon 64 FX-62 — AMD’s new flagship processor — is also a dual core chip.

AMD’s Athlon 64 FX-62 runs at 2.8GHz and has 1MB of L2 cache per core. The thermal power of FX-62 has increased by 15W up to 125W, and the number of transistors has increased from around 223M to just over 227M — an increase of just under 2%. The Windsor core is still manufactured on AMD’s 90-nanometre SOI (silicon on insulator) fabrication process. At the time of publication, it is unclear whether this chip will be transitioned to 65 nanometres with the rest of AMD’s lineup, as the company tends to drop FX-series processors after a faster version replaces it.

The second new addition to AMD’s dual-core lineup is the Athlon 64 X2 5000+. This comes clocked at the same speed as the Athlon 64 FX-60 that runs at 2.6GHz, but comes with only 512KB of L2 cache per core. As a result of the smaller cache, both the transistor count and maximum thermal power are reduced somewhat. The X2 5000+ core has a total of 153.8M transistors — a reduction of nearly 50% compared to the 2x1MB L2 cache processors — and has a peak thermal power rating of 89W.

Whilst mentioning the Athlon 64 FX-60, it is unclear whether AMD will launch Athlon 64 FX-60 on Socket AM2 — we’re suspecting that it will not, as roadmaps suggest that there is an X2 5200+ and an X2 5400+ scheduled to launch next quarter. Based on AMD’s current naming conventions, we expect the X2 5200+ to be an FX-60 with a locked multiplier and X2 5400+ will be an FX-62-based chip running at 2.8GHz with 2x512KB of L2 cache. In addition to the FX-62 and X2 5000+, AMD has transitioned all existing Athlon 64 X2 processors, and introduced a third new dual-core chip, too. The Athlon 64 X2 4000+ is clocked at 2.0GHz — the same speed as the X2 3800+ — but comes with 2x1MB of L2 cache.

All of the Athlon 64 X2 chips — with the exception of the X2 5000+ — will come with either an 89W or 65W peak thermal power rating, with the Athlon 64 X2 3800+ also coming in a 35W version, too. We expect that this one is designed for small form factor and media PCs where space comes at a premium.

Single Core Athlon 64s and Semprons:

The high end of AMD’s product stack is completely dominated by dual-core processors, meaning that it is finally making a definite move towards blanketing its lineup with dual core processors. However, AMD’s lineup isn’t going to transition fully to dual-core until the chip manufacturer decides that the time is right — it doesn’t feel that the time is now, as the lower half of AMD’s product stack is made up entirely of single core chips.

Unlike Socket 939, there is very little cross over and confusion over whether the single core chip with the same rating is faster than the dual core equivalent. AMD has transitioned three single core Athlon 64 processors over to AM2, namely the 3800+, 3500+ and 3200+. These are all based on the Orleans core, which comes with a 512KB L2 cache. The chips are clocked at 2400MHz, 2200MHz and 2000MHz respectively. We have heard rumours of an AM2 version of the Athlon 64 3000+, but there is no confirmation of this part’s existance thus far.

Along with single core Athlon 64s, AMD is also moving its Sempron line to Socket AM2 as well. There will be a total of six processors with clock speeds ranging from 1600MHz to 2000MHz with differing amounts of cache. At each of the three core speeds, there will be a 128KB L2 cache version and also a 256KB L2 cache version.

AMD’s Athlon
64 FX-53
FX Gets Its First Speed Bump. ..

Marco Chiappetta
March 18, 2004

6 months have passed since the initial release of the

AMD Athlon 64. 
In September ’03, AMD released two new desktop processors,
the Athlon 64 3200+ clocked at 2.0GHz and a premium
product dubbed the Athlon 64 FX-51, clocked at 2.2GHz. 
The FX and standard Athlon 64 shared the same base
architecture, but with the FX-51 AMD kept the 128-bit
memory controller found in their Opteron line of server
CPUs intact.  The standard Athlon 64’s memory
controller is 64-bits wide and doesn’t require the use of
registered DIMMs.  The FX-51 was to be AMD’s premium
product, targeted at hardcore enthusiasts who crave the
highest performance available.  We took an in-depth
look at the new architecture, features and performance of
the Athlon 64 FX

in this launch article. 
If you haven’t already done so, please check it out, as it
contains a myriad of useful information pertaining to the
new processor we’ll be looking at today, the AMD Athlon
64-FX 53.

With the
Athlon 64 FX-53, AMD’s engineers spent some time tweaking
their relatively new .13 micron Silicon On Insulator (SOI)
manufacturing process and were able to ratchet its clock
speed up to 2.4GHz, an increase of about 9% over the
already speedy FX-51.  The excitement surrounding
AMD’s Athlon 64 FX has also prompted memory manufacturers
to produce low-latency registered memory modules.  As
things have matures for the Athlon FX,  AMD has been able
to wring out a bit of extra performance and chipset
vendors have added features to the platform as well. 
Read on and see what a little time and energy has done for
the Athlon 64 FX.

The technical
specifications above reveal that not much has changed
since the introduction of the FX-53, other than its
increased clock speed.   The Athlon 64 FX-53 is
clocked at a default speed of 2.4GHz, an increase of
200MHz from the FX-51’s 2.2GHz.  The new FX-53 is
built using the same .13 micron Silicon on Insulator (SOI)
manufacturing process, uses the same 940-pin socket, and
is equipped with the same amount of on-die cache. 
Essentially, what we have here today is simply a higher
clocked FX-51 — which of course, is a good thing.

On board
virus protection coming to an Athlon 64 near you? —

Although, there isn’t anything new to report on the
feature front, there is an existing feature that has
gotten some press as of late with the impending release of
Windows XP Service Pack 2.  All Athlon 64 and Opteron
CPUs are enabled with AMD?s Enhanced Virus Protection
feature, that will work in conjunction with the upcoming
Service Pack 2.  What this feature does is render
some virus types, specifically buffer overrun exploits,
inoperable which in-turn prevents them from replicating
and infecting other systems.   With the increasing
number of viruses and worms as of late, any feature
designed to help prevent them from spreading and to
provide a more secure environment is welcome in our book.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 processor overview

The AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 processor based on the Windsor architecture is intended for building home computers. The release of the processor took place no data of the year.

Processor compatible with Socket F motherboards. Processor core temperature limit under load can be 63°C. AMD says the system bus data rate will be 1000 MHz 16-bit HyperTransport (2.0 GT/s). This processor will require an advanced cooling system because its power reaches 125 watts. With technological process 90 nanometers — the total number of transistors reaches 243 million.

Pretty high-performance processor at the time of release in 2006, which can guarantee good PC gaming.

Competitors and analogues

In 2006, Athlon 64 FX-62 had few rivals among processors of its type, only the Core 2 Duo E6600 based on the Conroe microarchitecture, model 6400+ on socket AM2 from the Athlon 64 processor family, are worthy of interest, model 965 from the Pentium processor family, model E6400 on an LGA775 socket from the Core 2 Duo family, Windsor, Athlon 64 FX-74 on the Windsor microarchitecture, model 72 from the Athlon 64 processor series, model 60 Socket 939 from the Athlon 64 processor family, Pentium D 965 XE based on the Presler microarchitecture, Model 5200+ from the Athlon 64 family, E6700 on the LGA775 socket among the Core 2 Duo processor line, E6300 on the LGA775 socket from the Core 2 Duo processor family, Brisbane, Windsor, Socket AM2 model 5000+ from the Athlon 64 line, Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (AM2) based on the Windsor architecture, Socket F model 70 from the Athlon 64 processor series, X6800 model from the Core 2 Extreme family, Athlon 64 X2 4600 + (AM2) based on the Windsor architecture, Athlon 64 X2 3400+ based on the Windsor architecture, Brisbane, Brisbane, Brisbane, model 3600+ Socket AM2 from the Athlon 64 processor line.
