AMD Athlon XP 3200+

The Guru of 3D
10 June 2003
  • Summary: All in all AMD most certainly managed to put an extremely fast CPU at the market. The step towards a 400 MHz bus was a clever one. It will boost memory bandwidth if the mainboard supports it and if you have the memory for it. If you just bought an Athlon 3000+ hey .. just check and see if your CPU is multiplier unlocked. If it is .. lower the multiplier and raise the FSB.

AMD's Athlon XP 3200+ processor

  • Summary: If you're like me, you're probably wondering several things about the Athlon XP 3200+. The first question in my mind is: Why only 2.2GHz? The bus speed boost is a nice move, but why not crank up the clock just a tad more from the Athlon XP 3000+? Heck, the fastest clock rate we've ever seen on an Athlon XP was in the limited-run T-bred 2800+, which we reviewed at 2.25GHz way back in October of last year.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ CPU with 400MHz Bus Review

X-bit labs
13 May 2003
  • Summary: We reviewed a new AMD processor, which is none other but AMD’s response to Intel Pentium 4 3.0 with 800MHz bus. Just like Intel, AMD has also increased the bus frequency and Athlon XP 3200+ now works with 400MHz PSB. Now let’s find out if the new bus will be able to help improve the performance of the new AMD processor.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+: Enter the 400 MHz FSB

PC Perspective
13 May 2003
  • Excerpt: A long, long time ago, there were 266 MHz FSB Athlons and DDR266 memory speeds. Chipsets then arrived to push the boundaries and give us 266 MHz FSB Athlons with asynchronous DDR333 memory support. The advantages there were slight, and we knew that the dramatic changes occurred when the CPU and memory buses remained synchronous. Seeing this, AMD took it upon itself to delve into the 333 MHz FSB Athlons, and it was good.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+ Review

FiringSquad
12 May 2003
  • Conclusion: The Athlon XP 3200+ signifies little more than an evolutionary step in the life of AMD’s Athlon family. However, it also marks an occasion we haven’t seen for a while: AMD is comfortable enough with the performance of its 2.2GHz processor to leapfrog Intel’s 3GHz Pentium 4 and 875P chipset combination. That’s confidence. Yet, Intel seems to be just as sure of itself.

AMD Athlon XP 3200+

  • Summary: Наверное, все-таки «удалось». Athlon XP 3200+ — неплохой процессор. Со слегка изначально подпорченной шараханьями AMD и изготовителей чипсетов из стороны в сторону репутацией — это да, это не радует. Но «в сухом остатке» — неплохой. Пока что — вполне адекватный даже 3-гигагерцовому Pentium 4.

国内首测:AMD ATHLON XP3200+(下

23 June 2003
  • Conclusion: 最后我还加入了DOOMIIIalpha版的测试,选取了map1场景。虽然速度的排次是正常的,但是在640X480下,3200+ 也没有比2500+高出多少。这里先排除DOOMIII版本的问题,至少说明2个问题:DOOMIII对CPU速度不敏感;目前的显卡远不能满足DOOMIII的要求,所以显卡成了瓶颈。 本来超频测试是必须的,不过我将外频从200MHz提高到210MHz,也就是主频提升了110MHz,大概5%,就点不亮了,我也很是扫兴。不过以目前AMD的制程来讲,超频是不大可能的事情了。 这次测试可以帮我们了解一些真是的情况,一就是400FSB的XP3200性能非常不错,至于和IntelP4相比如何,可以参考本频道早先的文章。二是单通道内存并不比双通道内存差多少,至少我认为不值得花钱组建双通道DDR。那么双通道AMD平台的花费比单通道的高出多少那?nVidia最新推出的2款稳定支持FSB 400的 nfoce2 400、ultra 400,唯一的差别就是能否支持双通道内存,目前市场上这两款产品的价格大概相差200多元,2条DDR400...

国内首测:AMD ATHLON XP3200+(上

5 June 2003
  • Excerpt: 5月13日AMD正式发布了首款采用400MHz FSB的ATHLON XP:3200+,终于满足了AMD支持者的愿望,因为很多人都发现ATHLON XP的性能在提升前端总线频率时有明显提升。当然在兴奋之余,不少人对实际主频只有2200MHz的XP3200+感到一丝失望与无奈,因为这只比前段日子推出的ATHLON XP 3000+的2166MHz的实际主频高了33MHz。之前国外的一些知名网站已经做过了一些性能测试,但是我想,国内的DIY们在经济水平上还不能做到视性能为首要选购标准,让我们从更切合自己的角度来了解这款新CPU的问世究竟给我们带来了什么。 汤姆硬件在业界专业地位不容质疑,其在关于ATHLON XP3200+的测试时下了这样一个结论:Athlon XP3200+只是一只中看不中用的纸老虎。这样的结论未免给支持AMD的DIY们泼了一盆冷水,主要的原因恐怕是和Intel 的P4 3.0 C对比的结果。且不论这样对比是否合情理,但是这至少让当初给P4扣上高频低能的人们减了几分底气。话说从2000年雷鸟推出的时候就有了socket A...
