- Socket 940 vs. 939

Looking to go Athlon64 soon but finding it's awfully confusing trying to work out which CPU is best suited to your needs / budget? Short-Media's latest article should be able to help give you a clearer perspective across the range, also explaining the subtle differences between several of the chips including the S939 and S940 FX-53.


AMD have been launching assault after assault intent on battering the competition into 64-bit submission. The introduction of the 939-pin processor has been eagerly anticipated by some and left others with questions. Many have gotten caught up in the drag strip of benchmarks and overlooked the new features this latest introduction brings. Socket 939 does bring support for unbuffered memory but does this mean the death of Socket 940? Cool'n'Quiet has received a cool reception but it's a gem waiting to be polished. Socket 940 versus Socket 939. Which is the winning combination for you?
