Release Date01 Apr 2008 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP89WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache256KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency

Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5800+ compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5800+ has decent performance. Its 2 cores clocked at 3 GHz provide swift processing speeds but allow few processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 12 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from AMD.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 65 nanometers, the Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5800+ is not efficient at all by modern standards, and with a Thermal Design Power of 89W the amount of power necessary to run it does not make up for the inefficiency of its physical structure.
