AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 65nm Brisbane Core

Hello All. We've just posted a new article at in which we evaluate the features and performance of AMD's new 65nm Brisbane core based Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processor. We compare its performance, power consumption, and overclockability to a 90nm Windsor based 5000+ throughout the article for a direct apples-to-apples comparison. Here's a snip:

"With this transition, cost is a major factor, of course, but not just from a manufacturing perspective. With the change over to 65nm, AMD has also sharpened their focus on power consumption and energy efficiency, which translates to lower operating costs as well."
