The man had said a CPU would be a better upgrade for him now then a video card that I had previously posted. Clocking in at 3.2GHz, the 6400+ receives a 200MHz bump up from the 6000+, but not much else. Built on AMD’s current 90nm DSl SOI technology with a single HyperTransport link at 2.0GHz, 2MB of L2 cache (1MB per core) and a 125W TDP, not much has changed from the 6000+. The 6400+ is intended to bolster AMD’s current high-end line-up and better compete with Intel’s Core 2 Duo E6850, at least until Phenom arrives. It has been said that the 6400+ will perform roughly 10%-15% below Intel’s E6850 and about 7% faster than the Athlon 64 X2 6000+. Retail at about $225.00 + taxes, it is certainly affordable since now most ppl will be getting their taxes back.
