Sources revealed that the RST chipset may pair with SB southbridge and named as the “trevally” platform focusing the mobile market. The free and opensource driver for AMD graphics in the linux kernel supports both 3D acceleration and hardware decoders as of kernel 3. Just incase anyone is wondering, the one extra pin is located at the bottom left corner of the CPU. Since the reference clock frequency, the HTT bus and the CPU multipliers remain as-is, it was just like overclocking a chip. We have omitted some information from this diagram for simplicity. Aside from that, there are few physical differences between and AM2. ASUS has an optional leaf-blower type fan that can be snapped on to the fins for enhanced cooling.

Timings of are already emerging for DDR modules and will allow the integrated memory controller to perform more to its full potential. Despite my best efforts, I could not get this memory stable at those timings and MHz.

Small low-profile copper blocks are found hammed the north and south bridges. It’s worth a thousand words. The Silicon Image chip pictured above controls both the single internal port and an external port found on the IO plate.

As we begin to see more low latency DDR, this will no longer be an issue at all. With the industry pressure to phase out traditional DDR, it clearly made the most sense to move hamme entire lineup to ensure that the Semprons could operate with DDR2.


Since this is not possible, the memory controller will automatically round the divisor up to a value of 7. DDR does not hit a wall at timings.

Northbridge: AMD Hammer DDR2 IMC – Computers & Internet

If you encounter problems with the direct download for these operating systems, please consult the driver download manager for the specific Amd Hammer Ddr2 Imc model. HDCP support is limited to only one of those interfaces at any time. Physically look at the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip.

With 65nm just around the corner, there could be some interesting developments from AMD in the not too distant future. The fact that the memory is operating at MHz likely contributed to this.

Unfortunately, there is a downside to all of the great DDR2 enhancements, and that comes in the form of higher latency. Once again, the two came out very close. Today, it is becoming evident that the hardware industry as a whole will be abandoning traditional DDR memory in the not too distant future. Amd Hammer Ddr2 Imc now has a special edition for these Windows versions: Socket lasted a surprisingly long time for a socket anyhow and even dual-core support was implemented without any physical changes to the platform.

This works very cleanly for all PC based A64s on both the and platforms.

It will be very interesting to see what the future will bring the DDR2 market. Operating at an impressive 2. After addressing all of the above challenges, I feel confident that I have setup a fair comparison.


In this comparison, I will not try to circumvent the underclocking nature of the memory at DDR speeds. Posted on Jan 02, In other news, this article is thorough, and very well written.

Unfortunately, the AM2 processors are multiplier locked in the upwards direction, similar to all non-FX series K8 processors. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.

A member for the embedded systems, the ME, is basically a MT with different dxr2 output configurations. Please enter a valid email address. Your answer needs to include more details to help people.

There have been quite a few changes to the K8 architecture over the last three years, but the underlying technology has remained fairly similar.
