AMD officially announces Athlon 64 3000+

Without much fanfares AMD extended its desktop Socket 754 processor series. The most interesting here is that the new chip has the same clock speed, as Athlon 64 3200+ — 2GHz, but its rating is lower because of the halved L2 cache of 512KB.

Other specs are naturally identical to those of Athlon 64 3200+: DDR400 support, CPUID 0F48h, 1.50V core voltage, 89W TDP, Cool´n´Quiet support. Just the price differs (see table below).

At the same time, AMD changed prices for mobile Athlon 64 3000+ DTR (Desktop Replacement) processors.

Chip Description Old price, $ New price, $
desktop Athlon 64
3200+ 2GHz / 1MB L2 cache 417 417
3000+ 2GHz / 512KB L2 cache - 218
Athlon 64 DTR
3200+ 2GHz / 1MB L2 cache 417 417
3000+ 1.8GHz / 1MB L2 cache 278 218 (-21%)
