  1. While deciding to buy Amd Atholon processor

    65 nm Brisbane

    or

    90 nm Windsor

    Performance, Energy consumption and heat emission wise which one is better

    Amd X2

    I thought it is good value for money, looking to buy AMD Atholon X2 4400(2.3)

    I'd recommend the 4400, I once had that processor, energywise the Brisbane will consume less watts than then windors, about a 20watt difference at entry level cpus.

    As supersmashbrada said, get the 65nm version as the older version has nothing to justify picking it instead.

    I upgraded to a 5000 brisbane, 65w, 65nm from a 4200. Good upgrade. Alot quicker, it's the highest 65-65. There's a 5200 65w, 90nm also. There was supposed to be a 5200 65w, 65nm but haven't seen it. Only in Japan I think.

    Only drawback is 512mb L2. Windsor is 1mb I believe.
