Benchmarks imo are an elitist's measuring tool but as long as it's equal that's all we need. I needed to raplace the processor on my computer and I needed a solid new processor with the 939 base. They're cheap, efficient, reliable, and extremely easy to maintain. Created with lithographic technology sized at 90 nanometers, the Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ is not efficient at all by modern standards, and with a Thermal Design Power of 65W the amount of power necessary to run it does not make up for the inefficiency of its physical structure. The Ahtlon 64 x2 4200+ 2.
. I needed an upgrade for an aging gaming rig it still had an Athlon 64 4000+. Anything else I can help you with? I expected some improvement in speed and computing power, but this one turned out to quite a big improvement. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended. I needed to raplace the processor on my computer and I needed a solid new processor with the 939 base. An item that has been used previously.
I just want something temporarily. Its 2 cores clocked at 2. For thermal paste go for at least Arctic Silver 5 and cleaning solution for best results Follow this instruction about Arctic Silver application methods Anything else I can help you with? Even today, it is faster than most ordinary computers I have come across, the computer is already about 3 years old. Don't expect miracles here, but it is not over yet. I put this in my Fiance's computer. Cons: None that I can think of at all.
There is no lag whatsoever. Cores 2 More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously Speed 2. The Ahtlon 64 x2 4200+ 2. It scored better than an Intel 2. The old processor was an Athlon 64 X2 3400 and it did a solid job while it lasted. Used same cooling solution as for the single core, adn temp is still only 50C under full load.
It probably would help to know the current card honestly, don't know why I didn't ask that sooner haha. This thing is awesome for the price, anyone that wants to make the switch to dual core, i highly reccomend this one. Card you're buying and if you're looking for equal performance, that's all you need. I saw the difference right away. I cannot think of a more successful series of processors, and this is by far my favourite part of the series. And I was very surprised on what an improvement this was compared to my old one.
The old processor was an Athlon 64 X2 3400 and it did a solid job while it lasted. Everything works much faster and smoother now. Almost as good as it gets for the 939 socket. Cons: none i could think of. I doubt, I can find something else, so far this is the most plausible theory. This is an excellent value when you look at performance for the price; you can't do much better! All in all - a very good processor for a very affordable price.
So, is there any way to reset settings? I will buy even a 2nd hand card if the cost is good. I think that the 250x will be too strong for the athlon. Hi, I also have 4gb ddr2 Ram. This dual-core processor also comes standard with Enhanced Virus Protection, helping to ensure that program data memory is not harmed by malicious code. Used same cooling solution as for the single core, adn temp is still only 50C under full load. For that reason I don't like to pay for something which don't work at 100%, I will also sell the card after a while, so that I think I don't need 250x. If you want a quiet, reliable, processor.
Other Thoughts: I would still buy this processor today, if it were still in stock. Everything works much faster and smoother now. So if software is not there, settings suppose to be erased?! Say, if you uninstall completely clockgen, would everything be erased? And I was very surprised on what an improvement this was compared to my old one. I love the Atlon series. I'm thinking about ddr5 version of gt730 or hd7750, but I worry about that the Athlon will bottleneck the card. With dual processor cores each running at 2. The single core just couldn't cope anymore.
I hope that, now you understand me. I needed an upgrade for an aging gaming rig it still had an Athlon 64 4000+. All in all - a very good processor for a very affordable price. Cons: could use a bit higher L2 cache like that of the 4000 Other Thoughts: Great, cheap, and simple to install, arrived fast too Pros: For price this processor is def. For price you can't beat this anywhere.
