In this tutorial we will list all Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon II X2, Athlon II X3 and Athlon II X4 CPU models from AMD released to date and the main differences between them.

By the way, AMD has recently changed the name of those CPUs, dropping the number "64" from their name. So Athlon X2 and Athlon 64 X2 are the same CPU, and so on.

All those CPUs are based on AMD64 architecture, where the main feature is the memory controller embedded in the processor itself and not located on the chipset like all other CPUs. Besides Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 X2 we also have Sempron (models based on sockets 754 and AM2), Opteron and Turion 64 CPUs based on this architecture. Read our Inside AMD64 Architecture for an in-depth explanation on how these CPUs work.

Because of this architecture the communication between the CPU and the memory modules is done through a dedicated memory bus, while the communication between the CPU and the chipset uses a separated bus, HyperTransport (click here to read our tutorial on HyperTransport).

AMD CPUs based on Athlon 64 architecture can be found with the following socket types:

  • Socket 754: Used by early Athlon 64, some Sempron and Turion 64 models. Their memory controller is single channel, meaning that the CPU accesses memory at 64-bit rate.
  • Socket 939: Used by Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2 and Opteron processors. Their memory controller is dual channel, meaning that the CPU accesses memory at 128-bit rate, if an even number of memory modules is used.
  • Socket 940: Used by early Athlon 64 FX and Opteron processors. Their memory controller is dual channel, meaning that the CPU accesses memory at 128-bit rate, if an even number of memory modules is used. They require ECC memory type.
  • Socket AM2: Used by Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2 and Sempron (some models) processors. On these models the embedded memory controller supports DDR2-533, DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 memories at dual channel configuration, meaning that the CPU accesses the memory at 128-bit rate if an even number of memory modules is used. Keep in mind that the memory controller found on socket 754, 939 and 940 CPUs supports only DDR memories.
  • Socket AM2+: Used by some Athlon X2 models based on Phenom processor, introduced two new features, HyperTransport 3.0 bus (higher bandwidth between the CPU and the chipset) and separated power pins for the processing cores and the memory controller, which allows the memory controller to work at a higher clock rate and solving the clock multiplier problem explained below. AM2+ processors can be installed on AM2 motherboards, but HyperTransport bandwidth will be limited to 4 GB/s, the memory controller will work at a lower clock rate and the problem of the memory being accessed at a slower clock rate (see below) can happen. Socket AM2+ CPUs supports DDR2 memory up to 1,066 MHz.
  • Socket AM3: Used by Athlon II X2, Athlon II X3 and Athlon II X4 CPUs. This socket also uses HyperTransport 3.0 bus and the main difference between socket AM3 and AM2+ is the support for DDR3 memory modules. An AM3 CPU can be installed on AM3 motherboards (working only with DDR3 memory modules) or on AM2+ motherboards (supporting, then, DDR2 memory). AM3 motherboards, however, support only AM3 processors.
  • Socket F: This 1,207-pin socket created for Opteron models is also used by Athlon 64 FX processors used on AMD’s Quad FX platform (Athlon 64 FX models 7x). CPUs based on this socket can operate under SMP (Symmetric Multiprocessing) mode, i.e., you can have more than one CPU working in parallel. Like socket AM2 and AM2+ processors, the memory controller found on socket F processors supports DDR2-533, DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 memories under dual channel configuration, meaning that the CPU can access the memory at a 128-bit rate if an even number of memory modules is used.

The memory controller integrated on socket AM2 and socket F CPUs can support DDR2-533, DDR2-667 and DDR2-800 memories. The problem, however, is how the memory bus clock is achieved. Instead of being generated through the CPU base clock (HTT clock, which is of 200 MHz), it divides the CPU internal clock. The value of this divider is half the value of the CPU multiplier.

For example, an AMD64 CPU with a clock multiplier of 12x will have a memory bus divider of 6. So this CPU will work at 2.4 GHz (200 MHz x 12) and its memories will work at 400 MHz (DDR2-800, 2,400 MHz / 6). Keep in mind that DDR and DDR2 memories are rated with double their real clock rate.

The problem is when the CPU clock multiplier is an odd number. For an AM2 CPU with a clock multiplier of 13x, theoretically its memory bus divider would be of 6.5. Since the AMD64 memory bus doesn’t work with “broken” dividers, it is rounded up to the next higher number, seven in this case. So while this CPU will work at 2.6 GHz (200 MHz x 13), its memory bus will work at 371 MHz (742 MHz DDR) and not at 400 MHz (800 MHz DDR), making the CPU to not achieve the maximum bandwidth the DDR2 memory can provide.

Here are some examples:

CPU Internal Clock CPU Multiplier Memory Divider Memory Bus
2.8 GHz 14x 7 800 MHz
2.6 GHz 13x 7 742 MHz
2.4 GHz 12x 6 800 MHz
2.2 GHz 11x 6 733 MHz
2.0 GHz 10x 5 800 MHz
1.8 GHz 9x 5 720 MHz
1.6 GHz 8x 4 800 MHz

This problem does not occur on socket AM2+ and AM3 CPUs.

Other features found on processors based on AMD64 architecture are:

  • The processors are not sold by their clock rate but by a “performance rating” (PR) figure.
  • Addressing up to 1 TB (terabyte) of RAM memory (address bus with 40 addressing lines, 2^40 = 1 TB).
  • Support for MMX, 3Dnow!, SSE and SSE2 instructions (SSE3 only on the latest models, SSE4a only on AM2+ and AM3 models).
  • EVP (Enhanced Virus Protection) Technology, also known as “NX Bit Diable,” read our tutorial on this subject.
  • Cool’n’Quiet Technology, click here to learn more about it.

Now let’s see all Athlon 64, Athlon 64 FX, Athlon 64 X2, Athlon II X2, Athlon II X3 and Athlon II X4 models released to date.

[nextpage title=”Athlon 64 Models”]

Athlon 64 can be found on socket 754, socket 939 and socket AM2 versions. As we explained before, socket 939 and socket AM2 versions can use dual channel memory configuration, doubling the memory transfer rate if you use two (or any even number) memory modules on your system. Keep in mind that socket 754 and 939 models accept only DDR memory, while socket AM2 models accept only DDR2 memory.

Athlon 64 can use several different cores, and we’ve already written a full article on that. You may want to read it if you want to learn more about this subject.

Athlon 64 main features include:

  • 64 KB instruction L1 memory cache and 64 KB data L1 memory cache
  • 512 KB or 1 MB L2 memory cache
  • HyperTransport (HT) bus running at 800 MHz (3.2 GB/s) or 1 GHz (4 GB/s). These clocks may also be referred as “1,600 MHz” or “2,000 MHz,” respectively.
  • DDR dual chan
    nel configuration on socket 939 and socket AM2 models (you need to install an even number of memory modules to use this feature).
  • SSE3 instruction set on some models.

In the table below we list all Athlon 64 released to date. TDP means Thermal Design Power and indicates the thermal dissipation of the CPU, i.e., the CPU cooler must be capable of dissipating at least this amount of heat.

[nextpage title=”Athlon 64 FX Models”]

Athlon 64 FX is a processor targeted to high-end gamers. Originally the difference between Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 FX was the amount of L2 memory cache (512 KB on Athlon 64 vs. 1 MB on Athlon 64 FX) and better overclocking capability, provided by an unlocked clock multiplier. All other CPUs from both Intel and AMD have a fixed clock multiplier, not allowing you to increase it – on all other CPUs the only way to overclock the CPU is to increase their external clock. Thus on Athlon 64 FX you have two options when overclocking the CPU: increasing the CPU base clock (also known as HTT clock), which defaults to 200 MHz, and/or increasing its clock multiplier.

When Athlon 64 processors started to be shipped also with 1 MB, the difference between them became the unlocked clock multiplier – Athlon 64 4000+ and Athlon 64 FX-53 are the same processor, for instance. Traditionally Athlon 64 CPUs with the highest clock rates are first released as Athlon 64 FX models.

Athlon 64 FX main features include:

  • 64 KB instruction L1 memory cache and 64 KB data L1 memory cache per core.
  • 1 MB L2 memory cache.
  • HyperTransport bus running at 800 MHz (3.2 GB/s) or 1 GHz (4 GB/s). These clocks may also be referred as “1,600 MHz” or “2,000 MHz”, respectively.
  • DDR dual channel configuration on all models (you need to install two or an even number of memory modules to use this feature).
  • Early Athlon 64 FX models used socket 940, which required ECC memory modules.
  • SSE3 instruction set on some models.
  • Dual-core feature on models ending with an even number (FX-60 is the first dual-core Athlon 64 FX). Dual-core processors have two complete CPUs inside. Read our tutorial Dual Core AMD Processors to learn more about this technology.
  • Socket AM2 and socket F models work with DDR2 memories, while socket 939 and 940 work with DDR memories.

In the table below we list all Athlon 64 FX released to date. TDP means Thermal Design Power and indicates the thermal dissipation of the CPU, i.e., the CPU cooler must be capable of dissipating at least this amount of heat.

[nextpage title=”Athlon 64 X2 Models”]

Athlon 64 X2 is an Athlon 64 with dual-core technology, i.e., it has two complete CPUs packed together. Read our tutorial Dual Core AMD Processors to learn more about this technology. As mentioned, AMD has changed the name of this CPU to Athlon X2 and, a little bit later, to Athlon X2 Dual Core, so Athlon 64 X2, Athlon X2 and Athlon X2 Dual Core are the same CPU.

Athlon X2 processors can use socket 939, AM2 or AM2+. On socket 939 models you may need to perform a BIOS upgrade if your motherboard was released before they reached the market in order to support them.

Like single-core Athlon 64 processors, Athlon X2 CPUs are identified by a four-digit model number (e.g., Athlon 64 4000+, Athlon X2 6000+ and so on). This numbering system allows you to compare the performance of CPUs from the same family. Inside the same family, the higher the number, the faster the CPU is. For example, Athlon 64 4000+ is faster than Athlon 64 3800+, which in turn is faster than Athlon 64 3400+.

We only can use this numbering system to compare processors that belong to the same family. We cannot say that Athlon 4000+ is faster than Athlon X2 3800+ just because its model number is higher. These two processors belong to two different families and thus we can’t compare apples to bananas.

AMD is now adopting a new numbering system for their processors. This new system is more complicated than the previous one and will only be adopted by new processors, i.e., processors that were already launched with the old numbering system won’t have their model number replaced, keeping the old naming.

This new numbering system uses a five-character format: XX-####, where XX are letters and #### are numbers. The two letters indicate the processor class, with the second letter indicating the CPU thermal dissipation (TDP). The first number after the dash indicates the processor series and informs the CPU features. The three last numbers indicate the position of the CPU within its series and class. The higher this number, the more features the CPU has – usually indicating a higher performance within its class and series.

Athlon X2 Dual Core is the first processor to adopt the new numbering system. Just to exemplify how this new numbering system works, Athlon X2 Dual Core BE-2350 belongs to “BE” class (the letter “E” indicating that this CPU dissipates 45 W), “2xxx” series and its number within this series and class is “350”.

Athlon 64 X2 main features include:

  • Two processing cores.
  • 64 KB instruction L1 memory cache and 64 KB data L1 memory cache for each core.
  • 512 KB or 1 MB L2 memory cache for each core.
  • 2 MB L3 cache on AM2+ models.
  • HyperTransport (HT) bus running at 1 GHz (4 GB/s) on 939 and AM2 models. This clock may also be referred as “2,000 MHz”. On AM2+ models this bus runs at 1.8 GHz (7.2 GB/s). This clock may also be referred as “3.6 GHz”.
  • Socket 939, AM2 or AM2+. Socket 939 models accept only DDR memories while socket AM2 and AM2+ models accept only DDR2 memories.
  • Dual channel configuration on all models (you need to install two or an even number of memory modules to use this feature).
  • SSE3 instruction set on all models.
  • SSE4a instruction set on AM2+ models.

In the table below we list all Athlon 64 X2 released to date. TDP means Thermal Design Power and indicates the thermal dissipation of the CPU, i.e., the CPU cooler must be capable of dissipating at least this amount of heat.

[nextpage title=”Athlon II X2 Models”]

Athlon II X2 is similar to Phenom II CPU, but with two processing cores and no L3 cache. According to the manufacturer, Athlon II X2 isn’t a Phenom II with its L3 cache and some cores disabled, but a CPU manufactured from ground up. Thus, it has die size, reducing manufacturing cost.

Athlon II X2 uses AM3 socket, but is also backwards compatible with certified AM2+ motherboards. When installed on an AM3 motherboard it supports DDR3 memories, but if you put it on an AM2+ board it will work with DDR2 modules.

Athlon II X2 main features include:

  • Two processing cores
  • 64 KB instruction L1 memory cache and 64 KB data L1 memory cache for each core
  • 512 KB or 1 MB L2 memory cache for each core
  • HyperTransport (HT) bus running at 2 GHz (8 GB/s). This clock may also be referred as “4,000 MHz.”
  • Socket AM3
  • Dual channel configuration (you need to install an even number of memory modules to use this feature).
  • SSE4a instruction set (which is not the same thing as SSE4 from Intel).

In the table below we list all the Athlon II X2 models released to date. TDP means Thermal Design Power and indicates the thermal dissipation of the CPU, i.e., the CPU cooler must be capable of dissipating at least this amount of heat.
