Shuttle
has given insight into the next major silicon revision of a
forthcoming microprocessor, AMD Athlon 64 3400+ CG. The “CG” revision of Athlon
64 brings greater performance via “2T memory timing enhancements that will
enable support of higher density and/or higher frequency memory modules. The
“CG” revisions of the AMD Athlon 64 will not require identically paired DDR DIMM
modules for the second and third slots in mainboards with three DIMM slots.
Expect “CG” revisions of Athlon 64 to start rolling from the AMD’s fabrication
facilities before the start of Q2 this year. “CG” variants of the Athlon 64 can
be identified under the new CPU ID of 0000F4AH and current Socket 754 mainboards
should only require a BIOS microcode update to correctly identify the processor.
