AMD Athlon 64 is a 64-bit microprocessor based on K8 architecture and designed for desktop computers. These microprocessors include all basic features of K8 micro-architecture, such as split 128 KB level 1 cache, exclusive 512 KB or 1 MB level 2 cache, AMD64 technology, Enhanced Virus Protection, and support for SSE2 instructions. SSE3 instruction set was added to all Athlon 64 processors with core revision E3 or later. To interface with memory and peripheral devices all Athlon 64 CPUs use integrated memory controller and one HyperTransport link instead of Front-Side Bus. Performance of the integrated memory controller and the HyperTransport link was gradually improved with introduction of new package and socket types:
  • 754-pin package / Socket 754 processors - these processors include single-channel DDR SDRAM memory controller and one 800 MHz HyperTransport link.
  • 939-pin package / Socket 939 - memory controller was upgraded to dual-channel controller, which provides twice as much memory bandwidth as compared to socket 754 - up to 6.4 GB/s depending on memory type. The frequency of HyperTransport link was increased to 1000 MHz.
  • 940-pin package / Socket AM2 - this socket added support for DDR2 SDRAM memory, which effectively doubles memory bandwidth up to 12.8 GB/sec. Please note that 940-pin processors for socket AM2 are not compatible with older socket 940, even though both sockets have the same number of pin holes.

The Athlon 64 processors were manufactured using 0.13 micron, 0.09 micron and 0.065 micron technology.

AMD Athlon 64 2800+ - ADAAA2800ACN5
ADAAA2800ACN5 is a pre-release version of Athlon 64. This specific processor was manufactured in December 2002, that is 10 month before introduction of the Athlon 64 family. It's not clear whether this processor has 2800+ model number or not. The part number implies that it does. The CPU has 1.6 GHz internal frequency, which is 200 MHz lower than on production 2800+ processors, but ADAAA2800ACN5's large 1 MB level 2 cache should mostly compensate for the difference in internal frequency. At the same time the CPU has "AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 2600+" name string, and the processor's performance is about 5% - 12% lower than the performance of production Athlon 64 2800+ processors. It's possible that lower performance of this CPU can be attributed to very early core revision - SH-B0. The first production Athlon 64 CPUs had SH-C0 core, and it seems that there were many errata fixes between B0 and C0 cores.

This is the slowest Athlon 64 processor for socket AM2. The processor is in 940-pin micro Pin Grid Array package, which is not compatible with socket 939 and socket 940. The ADA3000IAA4CN runs at the same frequency as the socket 939 Athlon 64 3000+, but due to faster memory access the socket AM2 3000+ is on average a few percent faster than the socket 939 CPU rated at the same speed.

AMD Athlon 64 3400+ - ADA3400DAA4BZ
This Athlon 64 3400+ has unusual suffix 'BZ' which was not used on any other processors based on K8 architecture. There are known samples of this CPU with stepping codes ABBLE and LBBLE. Judging by these codes we think that the processor has core revision E3 and is based on Venice core. It's not clear how this CPU is different from BP processors, that have the same core stepping.

This is the fastest desktop processor for socket 754, and this is usually the best upgrade for socket 754 motherboards. This is not the fastest socket 754 processor overall. Mobile Athlon 64 4000+ has faster internal frequency than the Athlon 64 3700+, but that mobile processor is not supported by many desktop motherboards. The Mobile Athlon 64 may work in some motherboards, and even then it may require different heatsink/fan due to different height of package type.

ADA3800IAA4CN is the fastest single-core Athlon 64 socket AM2 processor. Even though this is not overall the fastest single-core AMD processor, for many people it's still a good and cheap upgrade option due to very good price/performance ratio. Being 30% - 40% cheaper than the Athlon 64 4000+ CPU, it's only a few percent slower than the 4000+. The difference in performance between this processor and AMD Athlon 64 FX-57 is approximately 10% - 15%, while the FX-57 CPU is 2.5 - 3 more expensive.
This processor is the same as the Athlon 64 FX-53 ADAFX53DEP5AS. The processor has the same characteristics as the FX-53, even the core stepping is the same. Needless to say that this Athlon 4000+ CPU in all benchmarks matches the Athlon 64 FX-53.
The 4000+ is the fastest single-core Athlon 64 microprocessor. This is a good upgrade processor for single-task oriented computers, for example, for game computers. At the same time, it may become difficult to find this processor in the future as AMD is phasing out production of this and other socket 939 processors. At this time (September 2006) the Athlon 64 4000+ and faster single-core Athlon 64 FX processors are no longer listed in AMD pricing list.

Fake microprocessors

There are a few reasons why we think that ADA3700AEP5AP processors are fakes. First, there is no reference to ADA3700AEP5AP part number on AMD website or in AMD official documentation. Second, the data matrix code on the CPU doesn't match processor's serial number. Third, this processor may be reported as an engineering sample by BIOS or CPU ID detection software. This occurs when the CPU is an engineering sample, or when the processor's CPU ID is not recognized by a motherboard. And the last reason - when installed in a motherboard, the processor may run at 800 Mhz. This usually happens when a mobile processor is used in a desktop motherboard, and when operating system doesn't support processor's PowerNow! feature. From all of these clues we can conclude that this 3700+ CPU is probably a remarked mobile processor.

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ - ADA3000DAA4BW (ADA3000BWBOX)

it is socket 939, not 754

Response: If possible please point exactly where it says that it's a socket 754 CPU. I can't seem to find it.
