Single or dual, they can OC much better, lower votage in doing so, and runs cooler as well. They maybe more expensive but they are in a class of its own like the FX, best of the best. liquidpaper007 January 13, 2006 3:41:25 AM w00t its gonna be time to make my move to 939 Spitfire_x86 January 13, 2006 11:21:01 AM From the PR rating and clock speed of A64 X2 5000+, A64 4000+ I suspect DDR2 A64s may be slower than DDR A64s at equal clockspeed.

They might also be doing a performance jump/pr as they did from the 2200+ to the 2400+(actually 200 mhz jump) as well. AMD wouldnt be making the change if it didnt benefit them somehow. endyen January 14, 2006 3:35:37 AM I wonder how much the extra memory bandwidth will help? endyen January 14, 2006 4:38:51 AM Cas3 @ 333 is the same speed as cas2 @ 222, so the DDR2 cas3 is actually lower than the DDR cas2 Can't find your answer ?
