     Pictures of the Opteron Socket F

    After the Socket a few months ago, here are now the first pictures of an Opteron Socket F. There are 1207 contacts, but we don't know yet exactly how they will be used compared to the current 940 pins of the Opteron.


    We already knew that these processors would replace the pins by contacts placed directly on the Socket. This will sign the end of the twisted pins. This system is similar to the Socket 775… and the Opteron Socket F gives us an impression of déjà vu.



     what about the Pentium D 805 ?

    We noticed a little while ago the release of a cheaper Pentium D at approximately 150€, the 805: Intel is apparently trying to sell out SmithField stocks. This processor differs from the other Pentium D by the frequency and FSB, 2.67 GHz and 533 MHz-FSB.

    What is the impact on performances? Here are for your information performances measures with our usual processors tests suite along with similarly priced CPUs (3200+ / 520) and a Pentium D 820. Except for Far Cry and Pacific Fighter, times reported are in second so the smaller, the better:


    In multithreaded application such as 3D rendering or video encoding, the Pentium D 805 doesn't have any opponents in this price category. In single thread application, however, performances are logically lower than to the Pentium 4 520 and far from the Athlon 64 3200+: you won't be able to play comfortably with this CPU. Performances in games are very low, at the same level as a Celeron D 355.

    The basic frequency of this entry level dual core CPU can be interesting for those who have a low budget and need power in application using both cores. Overclocking is also possible because our test product reached 3.6 GHz in 20x180.
