 Socket 939: New Socket, New Athlon 64s

"There used to be a time that a fast memory subsystem and 64-bit addressing was the privilege of ultra expensive workstation and server CPUs. Back in 2000, we were amazed that the Alpha 21264 featured a 128-bit Interleaved memory bus. Today the Athlon 64 3800+ and 3500+ are the newest mass market 64-bit CPUs from AMD, and they are equipped with one of the most powerful memory controllers found in modern systems. The new Athlon 64 Newcastle on the Socket 939 platform has access to a 128-bit wide memory bus and can make use of the fastest unbuffered DDR400 CAS2 memory."
