The need for TLP processing capability is dependent on the situation to a great degree, and certain situations benefit from it far more than others. Early x86 bit Am The primary benefit of dual-core processors like the Athlon 64 X2 over single-core processors is their ability to process more software threads at the same time. The initial versions are based on the E-stepping model of the Athlon 64 and, depending on the amd athlon tm 64 x2 dual core processor, have either or KB of L2 Cache per core.

List of AMD microprocessors. In the consumer segment of the vual as well, the X2 improves upon the performance of the original Athlon 64, especially for multi-threaded software applications.
Multi-tasking also runs a sizable number of threads; intense multi-tasking scenarios have actually shown improvements of considerably more than two times. Advanced Micro Devices x86 microprocessors. The ability of processors to execute multiple threads simultaneously is called thread-level parallelism TLP. K8 Microarchitecture “Kuma” based models are K10 derived. Retrieved from ” https: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Duap often written with multiple threads and capable of utilizing dual-cores include many music and video encoding applications, and especially professional rendering programs.

By placing two cores on the same die, the X2 effectively doubles the TLP over a single-core Athlon 64 of the same speed. Having procsesor cores, the Athlon 64 X2 has an increased number of transistors. This lower yield makes the X2 more expensive to produce than the single-core processor. Certain programs are currently written for only one thread, and are therefore unable to utilize the processing power of the second core.

As a result, a larger area of silicon must be defect free. These applications can realize almost twice the performance of a single-core Athlon 64 of the same specifications.
