    Cool Skt 754 Processor review

    I know its old and I know you more than likely know all of the details in this, but I just thought id type a review up on 754 for my friends and decided to put it onto here also.





    AMD Socket 754 Processor review.

    O.k. I am back with an AMD Socket 754 Processor review. Sure, this seems like very, very old technology. I have to admit; it is showing its age on performance now. But if paired up with the right hardware, itís still CRAZY FAST! The AMD Sempron, Designed for people on a budget, is the cost efficient equivalent to Intel Celeron D processor. Clock speeds of the Sempron line range from 1.6GHz (2800+) to 2.0GHz (3400+). Prices been as cheap as £29 for the Sempron 3000+ its about as cheap as chips as your going to get! Although the 3000+ has a clock speed of 1.8GHz with 128kb cache, it still can get a decent amount of work done and is Vista compatible. Itís not a processor for gaming and heavy multi-tasking, but this processor still does have a purpose. It would be great for a home media centre processor, or for a second computer.
    Going a bit more upmarket, we get into the Athlon 64 range. Socket 754 was the first ever socket to get Athlon 64ís, so itís going to be a history socket one day in the not to far future. AMD Athlon models range from 2800+ (1.8GHz) Ė 3700+ (2.4GHz), The AMD Athlon 64 3700+ is an extremely fast processor, delivering speeds of 2.4GHz and a SMACHING 1MB of l2 cache, its no wonder it is a rare processor to find and costing as much as £200. It has the same speed as an AMD Athlon 64 4000+ in the Socket 939 range. Although, because of the slower HTT speeds and single channel memory, it can only be classified as 3700+.

    Processor Models available for the Socket 754 line.

    AMD Sempron 2800+, 3000+, 3100+, 3300+ & 3400+
    AMD Sempron 64 2800+, 3000+, 3100+, 3300+ & 3400+
    AMD Athlon 64 2800+, 3000+, 3100+, 3200+, 3400+ & 3700+
    AMD Mobile Athlon 2800+, 3200+, 3400+, 3700+ & 4000+
    AMD Turion 64 MT32, MT34 & MT37
    The AMD Athlon 64 3100+ is an extremely rare processor. I believe it is clocked at 1.8GHz with 1MB Cache. If you get your hands on one, youíre very lucky indeed!

    Finishing up

    Socket 754 Pros Ė First socket with 64-bit Athlonís, still reasonably powered CPUís, low cost energy efficient and PCI-e support.

    Socket 754 Cons Ė 1600MHz HTT, Single Channel Memory, and no dual core processors available.

    Final thoughts Ė still quite popular today, can run next version of windows.

    Nice review I had owned 754 3200+clawhammer1Mb L2 and MSI K8N Neo Platinum mobo the most important reason to upgrade s939 was simple i needed 1Gb of RAM. And yes of course its support 1GB and more but not with 1T command rate (i never got that workin on 100% stable with 1Gb/1T command.. 512Mb works perfectly) Single Channel DDR AMDs suffort major performace hit with 2T command, so instead to try to find perfect 754Mobo/Ram combo i just changed to 939s.

    and i was talkin about DDR 400

    Can't be that rare cos I got 3 of them
    754 wasn't much of an improvement, if any, over nforce2.
    Particularly if you made use of Soundstorm.
