Enabling dual core desktop computing and featuring two processor cores each operating at 2.2GHz with a 512KB (1MB in total) L2 Cache, the Dual Core AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Socket 939 processor can perform calculations on two streams of data to increase efficiency and speed while running multiple programs and the new generation of multi-threaded software. You'll be able to run games, chat and music all at the same time without noticing any degradation in response time!
This exceptional processor is integrated with a high-bandwidth, low-latency memory controller enabling support for up to DDR400 memory, which will allow you to switch between programs without annoying pauses. Other features including support for 3DNow! Professional technology and SSE3 accelerate multimedia applications and enable stellar performance when working with audio, video and photography software. AMD's Cool n' Quiet technology lowers power consumption and a quieter system, giving you an overall better computing experience.
- AMD64 Dual-core TechnologyAMD64 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.
- HyperTransport TechnologyHyperTransport 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. The Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Socket 939 processor is equipped with HT technology to enable a system bus speed of up to 2000MHz, delivering a maximum of 8GB/s I/O bandwidth and 14.4GB/s processor-to-system bandwidth.
- CNQ: Cool'n'Quiet TechnologyAMD's Cool'n'Quiet technology is an innovative solution available on AMD Athlon 64 processor-based systems that can effectively lower the power consumption and enable a quieter-running system while delivering performance-on-demand.
- Enhanced Virus ProtectionAll AMD processors equipped with AMD64 technology are Enhanced Virus Protection-enabled. Enhanced virus protection acts as a preventative measure causing the virus to be localized, short-lived, and non-contagious, eventually being flushed from system memory.
