A Less Expensive Athlon64




The new Athlon 64 3000+ runs at 2GHz, the same as the existing Athlon 64 3200+, but it only comes with a 512KB secondary cache, according to an AMD spokesman.

I’d love to have a meg of L2 cache just like the next guy, but these lower end Athlon64’s bring the price point down, I’m all for it.  Right now, prices of this new chip seem to be hovering in the just over $200 price range, but time lowers all chip prices.
