As PC gaming continues to escalate, the award-winning AMD Athlon
64 FX family of processors consistently outperforms the competition, performing up to 20 percent faster than competitive products on 3D games.
The three processors are the AMD Athlon
XP processor 2100+ for desktop PCs, the AMD Athlon
MP processor 2000+ for servers and workstations and the mobile AMD Athlon
4 processor 1600+ for notebook PCs.
PC power-users frustrated by the hourglass icon when trying to work on multiple programs at once, while also running background applications like anti-virus software, spyware filters, firewall software, and music, can significantly increase performance with the AMD Athlon
64 X2 dual-core processor.
The AMD Athlon
64 X2 Dual-Core processor will especially benefit prosumer and digital media enthusiasts, as well as those who run many software applications simultaneously.
With this capability and AMD Athlon
64 processors, PC users can take advantage of this huge step forward for desktop PC 3D graphics.
The Mobile AMD Athlon
64 processor 3000+ for thin and light notebooks is the first new processor model manufactured with AMD's 90 nanometer production process, which enables higher performance without increased power consumption.
AMD is taking a leadership role to deliver a more secure computing experience for home and business users with the enablement of Enhanced Virus Protection on all AMD Athlon
