The Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition is manufactured on a 65 nm process using the new G2 stepping, and runs at a stock speed of 2.6 GHz. Each of the two cores contains 512 kB of L2 cache.
The current version of CPU-Z does not recognize the Black Edition by name, only by model number and frequency. When it runs at its default frequency of 2.6 GHz, the CPU uses a memory divider of 7, which results in a memory speed of DDR2-743.
The following table points out the differences between the two "Black Edition" processors.
|Comparison of the Black Editions|
|Frequency||3.20 GHz, 2.60 GHz|
|Cache||2x 1 MB, 2x 512 kB||
|Process||90 nm, 65 nm|
|TDP||125 W, 65 W|
|Multiplier||up to 16x, unlocked|
