AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 Windsor Dual-Core 2.8GHz Socket AM2 125W Processor ADAFX62IAA6CS - OEM

  • 2000MHz
  • 90nm Windsor 125W
  • 2 x 1MB L2 Cache
ICON Loading...

The Athlon 64 FX-62 runs two cores at a lively 2.8GHz with 1MB of L2 cache per core. Built with AMD64 architecture, it was designed to run today's 32-bit software and provide an easy migration to the ever increasing number of 64-bit applications. And since it has two cores, true multi-tasking is possible. So, when you run something in the background, it's truly in the background.

With Cool'n'Quiet AMD proves that green isn't only in their logo. This technology steps down the core clock when full power isn’t necessary. This reduces the power needed for the processor and the system which can lower your energy costs.

AMD Live! turns your system into the ultimate home entertainment PC. It makes it easy to consolidate and manage all of your music, video and photo files for easy viewing and playback. It also makes it easy to view movies in one room while sending music to another without skipping or stuttering.

  • newegg AMD64 Dual-core Technology AMD64 is designed to enable simultaneous 32 and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With dual-core technology there are two complete processor cores in one physical package running at the same frequency to deliver TRUE multi-tasking power, allowing users to switch from one program to another without pausing for the computer to catch up and reducing annoying processing pauses.
  • newegg HyperTransport Technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. With HT technology the AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 Dual-core processor enjoys 2000MHz system bus speeds.
  • newegg Enhanced Virus Protection All AMD processors equipped with AMD64 technology are Enhanced Virus Protection-enabled. Enhanced virus protection acts as a preventative measure causing viruses to be localized, short-lived, and non-contagious, eventually being flushed from system memory.
  • newegg CNQ: Cool'n'Quiet Technology AMD's Cool'n'Quiet technology is an innovative solution available on AMD Athlon 64 processor-based systems that can effectively lower power consumption and enable a quieter-running system while delivering performance-on-demand.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Processor

Pros: Fast Processor. Notice a big difference between this and the 4600+ Windsor I had overclocked to 2.8.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: I opted for an AMD FX-62 @2.8 gHz CPU instead of the FX-64 or the AMD X2 6000. I was afraid that heat may be a problem: The FX-64 as does the 6000, both at 3.0 gHz, dissipate 125 watts, The FX-62 dissipates 89 watts. The FX-64 gHz was not offered by Newegg at the purchase time. My deciding factor was in reading online reviews of the heat problems with the 125 watt units.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, Intel is doing unfair trade practices upon AMD. Intel is coercing hardware vendors to use 90% of Intel’s CPUs rather than the competitor’s (AMD) CPUs. In my opinion, AMD makes a better CPU and they have done quite a bit of innovation. Intel is using strong arm tactics to keep AMD in the background. AMD has an opened antitrust suit law suit against Intel. Google "breakfree amd" to find out more info and ongoing updates on the law suit.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Performance

Pros: This is my fourth AMD, and I'm still not even close to being disappointed! Unlocked multiplier gives you so many options when it comes to overclocking. Mine's running 100% stable at 3.08GHz (15x205) with a voltage of 1.5375, which is a tad high, but the extra 208MHz makes such a difference.

Cons: For me at least, not much room to overclock. After overclocking my old x2 3600+ from 1.9 to 2.8 I was excited to get some nice percentages on the FX. Apparently 3.1GHz is about as high as AMD can get without the voltage shooting through the roof, and as it is, my voltage is higher than I'd like it to be.

Other Thoughts: Don't even THINK about overclocking one of these on any sort of stock cooling. If your case has great airflow, just grab a decent after-market cooler. If not, water-cooling is the only way to go. I have incredible airflow in the case and an AC Freezer 64 Pro, which kept temps down to 32/39 at stock, 42-54 at 3.08GHz.

The Rig:
AMD FX-62 OC to 3.08GHz, cooled by AC Freezer 64 Pro w/AS3
ASUS M2R32-MVP, AMD 580x NB
Sapphire Radeon HD2900XT, 512MB
4x1GB G-SKILL DDR800 5-5-5-15 2T
150GB SATAII Raptor 10,000RPM
2x200GB SATAII WD 7200RPM
Writemaster PATA DVD-RW 18x
SilverStone Strider ST75F 750W PSU

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Relatively cheap processor, great value. Speed is more than sufficient for modern gaming and multimedia processing. No problems at all so far, had it for a week and a half.

Cons: 90nm process isn't all that impressive these days. As a consequence of that, this CPU runs a bit on the hot side compared to 60nm processors of the same power. Using AMD Cool n' Quiet helps a lot with the heat, especially when idling or web-browsing. I wasn't thrilled about how it was packaged, either, but it arrived without any damage.

Other Thoughts: Not the fastest processor on the market anymore, but now that the price has been dropped so much, it's great bang for the buck. I don't OC, but if you're going to, make sure you pick up a good CPU cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Best Price to Performance Ratio
Eat that Insmell
Love the 1MB L2 cache runs better than the old 5000 I had in my system, with the 5000 OC'd to the FX62 clock

Cons: a con, yeah right
umm cant find one
ok maybe $170 is too much but im not complaining

Other Thoughts: Currently running smooth for 3 weeks now at 3.1 GHz 14x220FSB
MSI K9N Diamond doesnt let me use the unlocked multiplier, altho they just reassured me that with BIOS 1.7 it does work
cant wait to see how high this chip will go as my memory onlys allows a 225 MHz clock at 4-4-4-12 but I step it down to 220 so im drooling to try a x16 or x15 clock wiht my FX-62 altho I use a Koolance Exos Liquid Cooler
altho Im optimistic for 3.6 GHz 16x225 @ 1.5 volts or 18x200 gotta love late model cpu's for OC'ing I have at least 6 FX-62's for customers in the past 2 months all running well at 3.2 GHz with a Zalman 9700 Heatsink Fan and I didnt push them hard either

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Hands down this chip is the best bang for your buck. In terms of performance/price you can't beat AMD. As a former Intel man, I've been quite pleased with my first AMD chip.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST...wow...

Pros: Great upgrade from an AMD 4000+ X2. I am thinking the dual 1mb cache has more to do with it than the actual processor speed...but the difference is noticeable.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg got this baby to me in record time...thanks!

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Smoker

Pros: I went with this 90nm chip instead of the newer 65nm ones because it is faster according to Tom's Hardware CPU charts. The price is right and this boots up XP really fast. The programs just pop. Can't wait until I go to 64-bit OS. This is really the bang for the buck. The only one that is faster is the Conroe's but AMD has the horsepower which I prefer over Intels torky chip design.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I you want the fasted AMD DCSP CPU, this is it!
