• Designed to enable simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing
• Integrated Memory Controller

AMD Balanced Smart Cache
• Shared 6MB L3 cache
• 512K L2 cache per core

AMD Wide Floating Point Accelerator
• 128-bit floating point unit (FPU)
• High performance (128bit internal data path) floating point unit per core.

HyperTransport™ Technology
• One 16-bit link at up to 4000MT/s

Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology

Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core?
