90-nano Athlon 64 3500+ reviewed

PC-Web has posted a review (translate with Babelfish) of AMD's 90-nanometer "Winchester" Athlon 64 3500+. The new chip is compared with a current 130-nano Athlon 64 3500+, and with both CPUs sharing the same clock speed and L2 cache size, it's no surprise that application performance is consistent. What may surprise some, however, is the fact that the 90-nano 3500+ runs between four and five degrees Celsius warmer than its 130-nano counterpart. That's not Prescott-hot, but it's certainly less Cool'n'Quiet than many would have liked.
