AMD Athlon 64 2800

CPU Retail 3-YEARS Warranty, with Hyper Transport Technology .

Athlon 64, 2800+, 512k L2 cache, Socket 754


The Athlon64 2800+ is based on AMD's "Newcastle" variant of the 0.13-micron Hammer core architecture. The Newcastle core is a modified version of the Clawhammer design which was featured in first generation Athlon64 processors - the difference being the amount of processor cache which is active in the core. Athlon64 processors based on the Clawhammer core have 1MB of L2 cache, while those based on the Newcastle core have only 512K. Typically, cutting the CPU's cache in half cuts down performance to the tune of 5-10% - but AMD's architecture is surprisingly resilient without a large amount of cache. Most have found that Athlon64 processors with 512k of cache perform within just a few percentage points of those with full 1MB of cache. Thus, AMD is starting to move their entire Athlon64 processor line down to 512K cache models, while at the same time boosting clock rates as their manufacturing process gets better to compensate for the speed loss from having less cache.

The AMD Athlon 64 processor is the first and only Windows-compatible 64-bit PC processor. The AMD Athlon 64 processor runs on AMD64, a revolutionary technology that allows the processor to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling a new generation of powerful 64-bit software applications. Advanced 64-bit operating systems designed for the AMD64 platform from Microsoft, Red Hat, SuSE, and TurboLinux have already been announced.

With the introduction of the AMD Athlon 64 processor, AMD provides customers a solution that can address their current and future computing needs. As the first desktop PC processor to run on the AMD64 platform, the AMD Athlon 64 processor helps ensure superior performance on today's software with readiness for the coming wave of 64-bit computing. With AMD64 technology, customers can embrace the new capabilities of 64-bit computing on their own terms and achieve compatibility with existing software and operating systems.
