X2 3600 vs X2 4000 - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Motherboard and other components dependant, the 4000+ 10.5 X may be more friendly to work with vs the 9.3 X which requires very high bus speeds.
More of a personal choice over all!

And yes it's better than 3600, because it has lower latency(90nm) and double cache wich gives you ~200MHz performance advantage over the 360@same clocks.

Uhh.

AMD processors don't rely on L2 or L1 cache nearly as much as some other procs, especially AM2 ones due to the onboard memory controller. The 4000+ is 2 x 512kb just like every other one up to the 5600+ where that changes.

For the AM2 socket, Brisbane = 60nm and Winsor = 90nm.

I am thinking of going with the Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe. Its a bit more $$, but it has good reviews. With that, I should be able to get high bus speeds and HT.

@CuriouslyHigh




Sure man, but K8's imc has to do nothing with it's cache.
Just in case you don't know,
The relation between the increase of size of the cache and increase of performance is determined by the architecture of the cache.(inclusive/exclusive)
K8 uses exclusive cache architecture which is the most flexible, as it allows lot of different configurations in keeping a good performance index. The drawback is that the performance does not increase very much with the L2 size.



As for the 4000+ look here
