AMD "shatters the hourglass" with the arrival of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor.
"With the introduction of the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor, desktop users will gain incredible performance benefits with the ability to multi-task and do more in less time," said Bob Brewer, Corporate Vice President, Desktop Business, Microprocessor Solutions Sector (MSS), AMD. "Today, AMD demonstrates yet another performance lead within the industry as the only company with a broad portfolio of multi-core technology, from server and workstation to now client solutions with the addition of the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor."
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. For example, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor is designed to allow consumers and businesses to simultaneously download audio files such as MP3s, burn a CD, check and write e-mail, edit a digital photo and run virus protection--all without slowing down their computer.
The AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor can also deliver superior performance as multi-threaded applications continue to spread from the server to the client and consumer markets. With its impressive performance on existing client multi-threaded applications, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor will take prosumers and digital media enthusiasts to a new level with content creation and multimedia experiences.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor performance benchmarks have already yielded powerful results. Digital media applications can see an average of a 34 percent increase compared to similar single-core AMD Athlon 64 processors, while overall productivity benchmark results can see a 22 percent average increase. These dramatic performance gains available with AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors allow power-hungry users to usher in the next generation of digital media software with amazing high-definition video rendering and editing, digital content creation, imaging, and audio mixing.
