    there is no best. just different revisions. read up on what each revsion adds to get an idea of what they mean.

    some mean different fabrication size:

    e.g : 130nm to 90nm

    some mean the instruction prosses' that it can handle and understand.

    e.g SSE1, SSE2, 3Dnow!,

    the amount of power they require and the clock speed.

    tada

    heres a list of 939s

    * Clawhammer Core: L2 1MB Cache/ SSE1, SSE2 Instruction Support
    * Newcastle Core: L2 512KB Cache/ SSE1, SSE2 Instruction Support
    * Winchester Core: L2 512KB Cache/ SSE1, SSE2 Instruction Support
    * Venice Core: L2 512KB Cache/ SSE1, SSE2, SSE3 Instruction Support
    * San Diego Core: L2 1MB Cache/ SSE1, SSE2, SSE3 Instruction Support
    * Manchester Core: (Single & Dual Core) L2 512KB cache per CPU/ SSE1, SSE2, SSE3 Instruction Support
    * Toledo Core: (Dual Core) L2 1MB cache per CPU/ SSE1, SSE2, SSE3 Instruction Support
    * Venice Core CPUs include: 3000+, 3200+, 3500+, 3800+ (Retail)
    * San Diego Core CPUs include: 3700+, 4000+, FX55, FX57 (Retail)
    * Manchester Core CPUs include: X2 3800+, X2 4200+, X2 4600+ (Retail)
    * Toledo Core CPUs include: X2 3800+ (with half of the 1MB L2 disabled), X2 4400+, X2 4800+, FX-60 (retail)


    also. you sure your 3200+ is a sandy core???
    are you lying?
  2. no i am not lying its just when i turn on the program PC wizard its says its a San diego.. i will check again., can you give me a good program that will tell me what it is?
  3. cpuz. will tell you everything you wanted to know or could know about ur CPU.
  4. thats the program that i am using :) it says San Diego

    i didn't know that AMD made a sandy core of the 3200+. i thought the sandy core was high end only... screen grab??
