Athlon 64 FX-62 Dual-Core Socket AM2 Review

Hardware Secrets
9 June 2006
  • Summary: It is true that dual-core Athlon 64 FX-62 is the fastest CPU from AMD, but is its price worth buying it? Its official price for distributors in the USA is quoted at USD 1,031 while Athlon 64 FX-60’s is quoted at USD 827. And, as we saw in our review, the performance difference between the two isn’t big, on the 7~8% range, on average. And Athlon 64 FX-60 is based on socket 939 supporting standard DDR memories.

  • Conclusion: Overall, the Athlon 64 FX-62 is the fastest dual-core processors from AMD and it is currently the fastest desktop processor that supports DDR2. Socket AM2 is finally here and AMD has earned themselves into the DDR2 league. The results tell us that FX-62 is purely for gaming, intensive 3D rendering job and multitasking jobs. So if you have a pair of high-end graphic card (be it SLI or CrossFire), the FX-62 might be the right chip for you.

AMD's AM2 Platform: Athlon 64 FX-62 Processor Review

PC Perspective
22 May 2006
  • Excerpt: To say that the Athlon 64 and Athlon X2 processors have been wildly successful for AMD would be something of an understatement.  Since their introduction in September of 2003  and their move to 939-pin sockets in June of 2004 , AMD has been in a constant performance lead over anything that Intel was able to throw at them on the performance desktop segment.

AMD Athlon 64 FX-62: DDR2 versus DDR1

Hardware Zone
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: We set out to find out if DDR2 memory did any good to AMD's processors than if it had stayed on with DDR1 and after compiling the test results from various benchmarks, we've a very clear picture of the impact. The results are within 1% differential or less sometimes and this outcome was quite synonymous in many scenarios between the Socket-939 and Socket AM2 processor of identical specifications (with the fractional lead going to the new AM2 variant).

  • Summary: It didn’t break any speed records, but the Athlon 64 FX-62 is the first Athlon 64 CPU to feature support for DDR2 memory. If you’ve currently got a high-end Socket-939 platform, there is no reason to upgrade.

  • Excerpt: Aunque Intel ha pegado fuerte con sus Core™ 2 Duo, AMD quiere seguir en su línea ascendente y piensa plantarle cara con los productos que actualmente tiene, ya sea mejorándolos o ajustando los precios, haciendo tiempo hasta que lancen al mercado el K8L. Tras la compra de ATI por parte de AMD también se espera que sus procesadores saquen todo el partido de los poco utilizados, aunque de mucha calidad, chipsets de ATI. El K8L en concreto se verá potenciado por el RD790.

  • Summary: После таких результатов наверняка у многих наших читателей загорятся глаза. Действительно, мы смогли приоткрыть завесу производительности high-end систем 2007 года. Мы сравнили систему на AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 с Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800. После тщательной оптимизации и разгона производительность системы Intel Core 2 Extreme можно увеличить на 16,8 процента (хотя здесь всё зависит от приложения). Производительность Athlon 64 FX-62 мы смогли повысить всего на 7,2 процента.

  • Summary: Вновь подчеркнём, что наше тестирование проводилось не в оптимальных условиях. Система Intel была сконфигурирована заранее и не является финальной. Но даже при таких условиях топовый процессор AMD Athlon FX-62, разогнанный до 3,0 ГГц, не способен дать существенного отрыва от предварительной версии процессора Core 2 Duo (2,66 ГГц, Conroe). При этом мы использовали даже не топовую версию процессора Conroe, которая должна уже очень скоро появиться на рынке.
