AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 OEM Product Details
AMD Athlon™ 64 FX Processor
Innovative Technology to Provide An
Extraordinary, Unparalleled Computer Experience
The AMD Athlon 64 FX processor runs on AMD64, a revolutionary technology that 1) allows the processor to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling the coming wave of powerful, 64-bit software applications, and 2) provides Enhanced Virus Protection when used with the upcoming Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). AMD64 technology shatters barriers to new and advanced software that require 64-bit technology and blazing processor performance. Power-hungry enthusiasts, gamers, and prosumers can explore the full potential of AMD64 technology while enjoying outstanding performance on today’s PC software.
Enhanced Virus Protection is a feature of AMD64 technology. This feature is enabled by the operating system, like the upcoming Windows XP SP2 and Windows XP 64-bit Edition for 64-bit Extended Systems, and is designed to trap a certain type of malicious exploit known as “buffer overrun” or “buffer overflow”. Enhanced Virus Protection together with the aforementioned operating systems are designed to prevent the spread of certain viruses, like MSBlaster and Slammer; significantly reducing the cost and down-time associated with similar viruses and improving the protection of computers and personal information against certain PC viruses.
The AMD Athlon 64 FX processor is designed for the most demanding PC software that extend the capabilities of today’s desktop computer, driving applications to a new level of performance and potential:
- Game Play: A game that is optimized for AMD64 can command a phenomenal amount of memory for textures, world models, and characters. The large physical memory and smart memory management of the AMD Athlon 64 FX processor can provide excellent performance and access to a new level of cinema-quality gaming realism. Multi-player games and 3D environments can grow to massive proportions and incorporate stunning detail.
- Game Development & Modification: AMD64 offers large memory capacity and other architectural performance improvements for fast and efficient compiling, level editing, development of complex 3D models, and asset management. The growing trend toward user-generated content can accelerate, and tap the creative efforts of thousands of game modification enthusiasts.
- Game Serving & File Sharing: Multi-player games and peer-to-peer software that run on central servers can accommodate more users and larger physical environments. With the AMD Athlon 64 FX processor, more CPU horsepower is available for physics simulation, player interactions, and network connections.
- Digital Content Creation: AMD64 applications can leverage huge physical memory and 64-bit processing to manipulate huge images and complex audio & video content.
- Professional Grade Results: With AMD64 many professional grade applications can be employed to create professional grade results on a desktop PC including design, engineering, simulation, and science applications
AMD64 improves performance for many applications by evolving this industry-standard technology from a 32- to a 64-bit architecture. 64-bit computing allows operating systems and software to process more data and access a tremendous amount of memory. AMD64 is an industry-standard approach to 64-bit technology that combines innovation, simplicity, and foresight to deliver the next generation of performance—today.
HyperTransport™ technology is a high performance, easy-to-implement system interconnect technology originally invented by AMD. It is designed to increase overall system performance by removing I/O bottlenecks, increasing bandwidth, and reducing latency. HyperTransport technology implemented in the AMD Athlon™ 64 FX processor enables a system bus to run at 1600MHz.
In the past, increased processor performance has often meant increased power consumption and increased noise levels. AMD 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, for the ultimate computing experience.
All AMD64 processors, including the AMD Athlon™ 64 FX, AMD Athlon 64, and Mobile AMD Athlon 64 processors, are enabled with Enhanced Virus Protection. With Microsoft® Windows® XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), you will be able to fully utilize the security technology*. By providing extra security at the platform level, AMD lets you easily embrace the future of computing.
