Winchester 3000+ for sale, Winchester 3500+ on the horizon04.06.2019
Yesterday we have seen that the current revision of the Winchester core steadily accelerated to 2.3 GHz without any problems, and certainly can subdue the higher frequencies on the motherboard with a functioning AGP / PCI Lock, or when using a processor with higher multiplier. While in the retail declared a model of Athlon 64 3200+ with the multiplier 10.0h, and the Athlon 64 3500+ will start shipping next quarter.
We decided to examine the situation with the availability of 0.09-micron Athlon 64 processors in Western retail, to confirm the promises of distributors, who were planning to start selling this week. "Pioneers" of sales of the company Monarch Computer even promised to bring processors today, many Americans do not only have ordered the relevant models, but also have time to get them.
For example, employees of a site AMD Zone boasted the fact of possessing the Athlon 64 3000+ processor in Socket 939, issued on the 35th week of the year, ie the end of August:
We have to think in the next few days they will be pleased with our recent review, but for now everyone can buy CPUs with a rating of 3000+ and 3200+ in this online store:
Processors are available from stock, no restrictions on the size of the party has not yet specified.
By the way, the Athlon 64 3500+ processor on the Winchester core in the boxed version is already available for pre-order. In any case, the number of Finnish stores ready to bring the processor is October 10. It should be understood that the other distributors will sell this model in mid-October.
In other words, we can not rely only on the imminent appearance of 0.09 m processors Athlon 64 with a high factor, but also to improve the frequency potential. Temperature processor mode with a frequency up to 2.4 GHz inclusive will be rather moderate even compared with 0.13 microns analogues. For uncompromising acceleration only need a good motherboard Socket class 939 with asynchronous clocking of AGP and PCI (or PCI Express). Here this variable to date as a time and determines a large part of the success, so the choice of motherboard should be approached with due seriousness.
