Just a quick update on some socket 939 action.
This is all work for some videos way down the track, but all the data goes into a spreadsheet, so I can then produce the videos quite swiftly.
This is the FX-57, the fastest single core CPU for socket 939. Running at a blistering 2.8 GHz and comes with a whopping 1 MB of cache. Compared to other chips, the CPU fan does start to get loud. I'm using a 125W copper / heatpipe AMD stock cooler from a 125 W Phenom II X4 processor.
The system uses AGP, I'm using the same overclocked 7800 GS from the previous Intel vs AMD episodes. I think I will do videos on the 939 chips, comparing them to the Intel 478 results, but single core only. Then move to AM2 vs 775 and go with a much faster PCIe graphics as in some games, like F.E.A.R. I'm not seeing much scaling with the 7800 GS.
I'm Phil and run a YouTube Channel and website under PhilsComputerLab. You can also find me on various forums such as VOGONS, OCAU, DOSForum and others.
