i want to upgrade my amd processor.
i am using 780g chipset Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H.
now i am thinking to go for athlon 64 x2 5200 proc.
i am also interersted in over clocking.
so which one is better one.
1) 5200+ windsor(90nm).2.6ghz {2mb l2 cache}
2) 5200+ brisbane(65nm).2.7ghz{1mb l2 cache}
3) 5200B (business edition) brisbane(65nm).2.7ghz.{1mb l2 cache}

The windsor version will be slightly faster in some programs due to the larger cache but will use more power and have less overclocking headroom. As far as I know the Business class chips are the same as the normal Brisbane processors except that they are packaged and marketed differently.

but things are much more confusing.

If you want maximum performance, get the Windsor, for maximum effecancy, get the Brisbane.

Now the disclamer, the differance between them performance wise is fairly slim. Detectable in benchmarking, but likely not in day-to-day use. I suppose a fair question is what are you currently using?

the Brisbane will also remain cooler, and require less voltage to overclock
