5 out of 5 eggsGo Dual Core

Pros: Went form 3800+ to 4600+ X2. Basic Computing and destop runs much smoother, faster load times, and multiple applications run like a dream.

Cons: Benchmarks dead even with my 3800+, same FPS in single thread games, and even overclocks to roughly same speed as the 3800+.

Other Thoughts: You may not notice a difference in gaming from the single core 3800+ but basic computing and desktop are heavenly using the X2, definately worth it in the present and a must to carry your 939 system into the future.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product but minimal performance gain

Pros: Dual core.
939 socket doesn't force additional upgrades.
2.4 Ghz isn't too bad.
Easy to install
Reasonable price

Cons: Need to update bios on 939 MBs
No cooler included
Memory speed dropped 8% compared to my single core 3500+ with same memory.
Only 8% theoretical gain over 3500+ (2.2 vs 2.4 Ghz) in single threaded apps.

Other Thoughts: Good product, but KNOW what you're getting. Dual core helps for multi-tasking, but NOT for single apps such as games. Realize that you will be limited by the slowest component in the system. In my case it is a 6800GT video card. Absolutely NO change in frame rates for games, but I can run other apps at the same time with no slow down....I even ran Prime95 with no change in frame rates! I'm sure when I upgrade the video card the new processor will shine as it will be able to keep up.

4 out of 5 eggsEasiest upgrade I've ever done so far...

Pros: Got it last night 03/06, ordered 03/01 (not bad newegg!). Been running folding@home all night to settle-in the proc, no issues so far. Thought I had to take out the whole mb to get this in, but was able to work with just taking the heatsink off thanks to good cabling and thermaltake shark case.

Cons: haven't seen any significant performance boost from my old amd x2 3800, but can't complain...

Other Thoughts: This proc should tide me over until next year for my next rebuild.

5 out of 5 eggsYou'll not be sorry!

Pros: All that exists with this processor is a pro! It made a tremendous difference to my multitasking and video encodes, moving up from a single-core 3200+. Some programs (DVD Rebuilder and Nero 7 come to mind) make great use of multi-core processors, so what used to take half the day now takes an hour. Antivirus scanning isn't an annoyance anymore if what you're doing only involves one core (the other core will handle the extra load without slowing you down one iota), and background tasks stay in the background. By getting more mileage out of your old 939 socket, you'll essetially be buying a brand new blasing-fast computer for a couple hundred bucks. Stays cool with the same heatsink and fan that came with my old 3200+, so check before plopping down more money on a new cooling system; what you have may well work.

Cons: Doing more faster than ever isn't a con! But check your motherboard's BIOS version and update it if need be, since many of the old BIOS won't recognize dual-core. You may want to invest in additional memory as well so that your RAM doesn't become a bottle-neck in your system. Checking out the falling prices of 1GB PC3200 sticks these days, why not?

Other Thoughts: By upgrading your old system, you're doing yourself a massive favor that you won't regret. My "old beater" outperforms my wife's new system by a wide margin now!

5 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade from single-core

Pros: This was an upgrade from an Athlon 64 3200+ (Venice), and gave me a huge boost in performance. Everything on the desktop is smoother now with two cores to share the work. Ripping/encoding/rendering speed noticibly improved. Gaming scores are also up, due to the clock speed bump.

So far stable at an overclock to 2.5GHz (210 FSB). CPU temp is maxing out at 126 F.

Cons: The end of the line as far as Socket 939 goes.

Other Thoughts: I probably should have waited until this Fall for a Barcelona chip, but AMD's aggressive pricing is just too good to pass up.

4 out of 5 eggsAthlo0n 64x2 4600+

Pros: Easy install. Works great. Less heat generated than expected, even when I overclocked it about 16%

Cons: Not enough programs make efficient use of the dual-core. But that isn't really the processor's fault

Other Thoughts: Running at 5.6GHz with no heat or stability problems!
Just wish I could have afforded an even faster one. (I guess I'm never satisfied!)

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful CPU @ a good price

Pros: Fantastic processor and works effectively on my ASUS A8N-SLY Premium motherboard. It also worked very well on Windows Vista Ultimate.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: This is the highest end AMD X2 CPU that I could get for this particular ASUS motherboard. It seems like the AM2s have taken over at this point.

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast - for certain apps

Pros: Very fast for apps that support multiple CPU's.

PC always responsive even when running multiple applications.

Runs nice and Cool at 34C/93F idle.

Using AMD Power Monitor regulateds the speed automatically. 4600+ CPU (2.4Ghz) throttles back to 1Ghz and 1.1V most of the time to save power until you need it.

Cons: Some apps only take advantage of one core and are only 20% faster than my previous 3200+ CPU. Even those clearly using both cores don't run faster for disk intensive jobs.

Other Thoughts: The computer as a whole is always responsive now no matter what you are running.

Not the fault of the CPU but memory throughput is the same as on the 3200+ I had. This is on fast Corsair 2-2-2T memory.

Now I can see my dual 500Gb hard drives are the slow link for some tasks, where before I was waiting on the CPU.

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD

Pros: Socket 939

Cons: Dead

Other Thoughts: I wanted to replace my 3500+ with this bad boy, but when I popped the sucker in and went to fire it up nothing happened. Thought it was my power supply at first, so I plugged another one in. Same result. Put the 3500+ back in and it started right up. If anybody can tell me what they think it is email me:
