3200+ vs. 820 D
Well I'd like to know which processor is better in overall performance, gaming, multimedia and encoding.
AMD64 3200+ vs. Pentium D 820
Thanks guys !:cool:
Welcome to the forums!
Well, ones single core and ones dual core. If they were the same price, I'd go with the D 820 for the sake that it's dual core and that should help your multimedia encoding.
Overclocked, my 3200+ has slightly better performance than my 820 D overclocked, but again, it only has one core.
Mine is a AMD64 3200+ @ 2.45 ghz on a A8n-e board. Its memory benchmarks show that it beats a Conroe !!

So, does my processor beat the 820D ? (at stock) and the 840 D ?
Wrong link ! My bad...
Hmm, I can't speak for others, but I have done my own tests because I own both CPU's. I run my 3200+ Venice at 2.8GHz though... but 2.7GHz is more apt to be the 'norm'.
At stock speeds, a 1M Super Pi run wound up showing near identical scores for both my 3200+ and 820 D, so I wouldn't worry too much about losing performance by choosing the 'wrong' CPU. I'd be quicker to recommend the 820D only because it's a dual core, and that will speed up multi-media production, as long as you are using multi-threaded applications.
In the end, I'd go with the 820 D simply because it's Dual Core. If you don't care about Dual Core, get the 3200+ as it will likely allow smoother gaming performance. Oh, I should mention that if you do want the 820 D... you should get at least a better air cooler for it. The stock cooler is -rediculously- loud... the whiniest stock cooler I've ever come across.
