The newer 939/940 pins CPUs, which will replace the current 754 pins, does not support the Dual DDR Feature. Which truely blows, but it was cheaper for me to buy.


I own the 754 pins 3200+ Athlon 64, which doesn't take the Dual DDR feature, thus rendering my 1GB of DDR400 useless. But the difference between the 754 and 939 isn't that big.

Main thing is, the 754s don't have the Dual Channel support and the 939s do.


Preformence wise, it isn't that big of a hit.

how about the FSB? even the ones with 512k cache should have a speed equal to the core clock so if i have a 2 Ghz athlon 64 its FSb would be of 2Ghz

i have seen some benchmarks in which the 3000+ outstands the 3.2 P4 adn i guess it was tedted on 32 bits so if used with 64 bits OS and applications the performance should be better

Windows XP 64bit is just to get 64bit apps work.

so i wouldn't want to buy it until 64bit programs come out? and it doesn't make thing faster just cuz it's 64-bits?
