Hi all, I have a question about this CPU as far as what all the numbers mean, AMD Athlon 64 (939) 3200+ 90nmCPU.

How can you tell what speed it is???, also how does it compare to intel chips.

Thanks for any help and opinions

Hi all, I have a question about this CPU as far as what all the numbers mean, AMD Athlon 64 (939) 3200+ 90nmCPU.

Athlon 64 is the make of the processor; (939) means it fits into a Socket 939; 3200+ is the model number, and generally higher is faster; 90nm is the average transistor size, and smaller is generally better.

As for speed the only real way to get an idea is to head over here and have a look at some of their benchmarks. Have a look at this article for example, it has benchmarks featuring the 3200+.

Thanks Mr Alpha Those articles did help indeed. In your opinion for a high end gaming machine would the Amd processors be better than the intels???

Thanks

Definitely, if you look at the article you can see AMD sweeping the floor in gaming benchmarks.

Note that from this review that the faster AMD 64 processors are much more expensive yet only add a few percent more horsepower. Gaming speed is much more dependent on the speed of the video card.
