.09 Athlon 64: Value, Speed and Overclockingby Wesley Fink on October 14, 2004 12:05 AM EST

Because of the real world performance measured by the Winstone benchmarks, we did not really expect any difference between 90nm and 130nm results. However, the 90nm processors perform a bit faster than 130nm at the same speed in Business Winstone and Mutlimedia Content Creation Winstone. The differences are very small, but this is the beginning of even larger performance differences in Gaming benchmarks.
It is interesting that a 45% increase in clock speed (1.8GHz to 2.6GHz) on the 3000+ yields a 33% increase in Content Creation scores, but just 24% in Business Winstone. This is just another example showing that multimedia is much more impacted by CPU speed than standard Business applications.
