Review the classic CPU built by AMD

By  Sigismondo Eisenhower 2019-06-25 1500 1

This year marks the 50th anniversary of AMD's birth: For the first time, AMD is leading in performance and technology. But there is also a lot of time and effort behind the success. AMD classic processor for nearly two decades.

The first classic Athlon was born

AMD Athlon

AMD officially launched the Athlon processor on June 23, 1999, which we call Asron (Athlon) and which is manufactured in a 0.25 micron (250 nm) process with a frequency of 500 MHz. At that time, the Athlon processor had already led the list of CPU performances, but the market share remained large and the first generation Athlon processor had high fever and insufficient overclocking potential due to process problems.

Entering the 1 GHz field

AMD Athlon

In 2000, AMD first published a course in the history of mankind with a frequency of up to 1 GHz, namely the Athlon 1000, which is produced in a 0.18 micrometer process. The new method offers more room for the CPU frequency to upgrade, and the performance improvement through the high main band is also obvious.

AMD also launched the Druon Duron processor for the entry-level market this year. The difference to Athlon is that the second level cache is different. There is also a back door with a Dafa pencil that can turn the Duron into an Athlon. .

Lieutenant Lieutenant

AMD Athlon

After Microsoft released WINDOWS XP, AMD introduced its 0.13 micron technology based cores such as Palomino, Thoroughbred, Thorton, Barton, etc. called AthlonXP. The Barton core from Barton has achieved great success The combination of 2500+ and NFORCE2 is a classic match at this time.

At that time, the K7N2 series motherboards introduced by MSI were known as Zhenjiang Lake. The large electrolytic capacitors and the rich interfaces ensure sufficient durability and expandability of the motherboard. As with AGP8X and PCI, the IDE is of course available.

Explosive classic

AMD Athlon

AMD introduced the first desktop-class 64-bit CPU to the market. The Athlon64 processor codenamed K8 was one of the best single-core processors on the desktop at the time, with an ultra-short data stream and powerful gaming performance. AMD then launched the Venetian Athlon64 core processor, based on the 90 nanometer process, of which 3000+ is the classic model and is sold for 2 years.

It is worth mentioning that AMD has introduced the 754 entry interface and the high-end 939 interface in this processor generation. The main difference is that 754 is a single channel memory and 939 is a dual channel memory. And AMD introduced Sempron, a new CPU for the 754 platform.

In the same year, the combination of NF4 and AMD Athlon 64 was a very popular combination: the combination of dual-channel memory and 64-bit processor not only offers high performance, but also good scalability. The picture above shows the MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard, which is equipped with 4 SATA ports, IDE, PCI-E and USB 2.0 and is one of the hottest NF4 motherboards.

Dual-core performance

AMD Athlon

After entering the dual-core era, AMD introduced the Athlon64 x2 processor with its native dual-core design. The performance is significantly improved with the same architecture and the computing efficiency is very good. This processor has two platforms, 939 and 940, of which 940 became the main platform of the later ones and gradually evolved to the later AM2, AM3 and other interfaces. The Athlon64 x2 5000+ became the classic CPU of the year.

MSI K9N Platinum Edition, based on the NF 570ultra chipset, supports dual-channel DDR2 memory, and SATA and other expansion interfaces are fully equipped. At this time, the power supply uses the popular three-phase design and is still very powerful and durable with Japanese electrolytic capacitors.

Six Atom Expedition

AMD Athlon

In addition to known reasons, AMD has started to push multi-core processors and successively bring CPUs such as Athlon64 IIx3 onto the market. The concept of three-core processors is better than that of two-core processors. At the same time, AMD also accelerated the development of the K10 architecture, and the end product is the Phenom® series processor. The improved K10 architecture took AMD's single-core performance to a new level. Back then, Snapdragon 2 x6 was equipped with six cores. A few products that can keep up with your opponent.

MSI 870A Fuzion Power Edition motherboard, also called the flagship of the year, the power supply uses 10-phase Drmos + tantalum capacitors, advanced support USB 3.0 interface, is a good partner of Xiaolong 2 Fuzion Power Edition.

The path to innovation

AMD Athlon

After the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, AMD introduced a series of bulldozer processors dominated by a multi-core multi-module architecture. So many that the bulldozer processor did not perform as well as it should. It can be said that the bulldozer is not a successful CPU, but the advanced concept of the bulldozer was passed on from Ruilong and transferred to today's Ruilong.
