AMD Athlon XP 3200

AMD Athlon XP 3200 Review

So what is new and different about the "3200" AMD. This processor runs at 2.2GHz on a 400MHz front-side bus. In comparative terms, this means the CPU is 33MHz faster than its predecessor, while the bus is 66MHz faster. A faster bus and higher clock speed, big deal right?

A cool thing about the picture above you see of the AMD 3200? The brown wafer, of course. The previous versions were always green wafers. Brown wafers are the stuff of dreams.

If you really want to save money you can get the AMD Athlon 3000 instead. It will not be much of a downgrade and can be substantially less. Something to look into. But if you already have a 2800, don't you dare upgrade because the difference will be negligible.

The upward capability of the AMD 3200 is not top-of-the-line. It is nice, but for the latest games you are going to only be able to play on low or medium details, depending on your video card.
