AMD 4200+ X2

2. System Setup

In Device Manager, you'll notice that the AMD 4200+ X2 is identified as two processors, while with CPU-Z you can access the details for each core separately.

The default FSB is set at 200MHz while the the multiplier is 11.

Since we received the AMD processor without the stock cooling system, we used our own from Thermaltake, the Silent Water. The reported temperatures from SpeedFan are more than satisfactory, in fact, excellent. The system in idle (i.e. no tasks running other than the operating system) reported 21°C while under the stress test in Prime95, 28°C. The room temperature during our tests was 21°C. This rather low temperature might be a result of the very efficient cooling system but if we compare it to the temperature range that our AMD 3500 reported (29°C to 39°C), it seems that AMD has done a great job with this Processor. With such low temperatures, there's really no comparison with Intel's Dual Core processors.

Here's a rundown of our test bed, used to test the AMD 4200+ X2 processor:
