AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (AM2) Overclocking Performance @ TechSpot

By on July 12, 2006, 3:54 AM
AMD recently announced a new revision of the Athlon 64 processor core. This new revision codenamed 'Orleans' brings a number of new features to the Athlon 64 line-up including SSE3 support, an updated memory controller and a 90nm SOI process. However despite of the fact these new processors are substantially different to past revisions, AMD decided to play it quiet.

We have been doing a lot of testing with the new processors designed for the AM2 platform. Combined with the amazing ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe motherboard, we found the Athlon 64 3800+ could reach quite incredible frequencies. Next in line for testing was the more affordable Athlon 64 3000+ that we are testing today. Without wasting too much time in dream land I fired up my web browser, headed over to a local supplier and quickly made the purchase, which worked out to be just $90.

We say a 900MHz overclock out of stock cooling is not too shabby. Read on for more details as we experiment with the Athlon 64 3000+ Socket AM2.
