AMD64 with Direct Connect Architecture AMD64 technology allows the Athlon II X2 245 processor to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling a breakthrough approach to 64-bit software applications. Moreover, all AMD Athlon II processors are built on AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, where the processor core is directly connected to the memory, the I/O subsystem, and any other processors in the configuration by high bandwidth HyperTransport links. This cuts down on the latency and improves overall system performance and efficiency.
Integrated Memory Controller The AMD Athlon II X2 245 processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that directly connects the processor to memory for optimum performance, low latency, and high throughput.
HyperTransport 3.0 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 3.0 technology the AMD Athlon II X2 245 dual-core processor enjoys 4000MHz system bus speeds.
AMD Power Management Technologies CPU power management technologies including AMD PowerNow! 3.0 (Cool’n’Quiet), CoolCore, and Dual Dynamic Power Management result in proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers, including reduced power usage, lower energy costs, and greener PC operation.
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.
AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology Silicon feature-set enhancements designed to improve the performance, reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized applications with direct and rapid access to their allocated memory. This helps virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently enabling a better experience when dealing with virtual systems.
