The AMD and the Intel worlds are soo close together, but yet soo far apart. I believe the question you ask is what does it compare to as far as Intel is concerned. If you are wondering what Intel CPU it is to be compared to it is the Intel P4 3.06 GHz CPU. I guess the next "Q" is how does it compare. Well the two chip manufactures use two totaly different way to spec. their CPU's. I have personaly wondered which of the two were the best and set out on the quest to find the better CPU for the money, what I found was they were both great CPU's. The benchmarks on the both were over the top but when paired with great PCI Express video, Raid drives and ASUS boards I would recomend the both of them.
There are better people to ask about the dif. in the two, but seeing as how you ask about the 3000+ I would have to asume you go not get into heavy graphics nor do you edit graphics. Just remember with any CPU keep it cool, keep it stable, and it is guarenteed to suceed until it is outdated. At this point in time when I posted this x64 bit is the way to go but remember again the hardware is here laready not the software. Wait on the new "VISTA" to become public then upgrade to the new OS that is being written for the x64."Personal Opinion"
I use AMD Athlon everytime I use my PC that I built with the AMD Athlon II X3 450, and I also use AMD Athlon everytime I use my sister's Toshiba Satellite Laptop, or my mom's Compaq laptop. So in short, I use AMD Athlon whenever I'm using a computer that runs off an AMD Athlon which, by the way, are many.
The AMD Athlon is a line of 32-bit microprocessors manufactured by AMD between 199 and 2005. The "Athlon" brand name is continued in other 32-bit and 64-bit processors, such as the Athlon XP, Athlon 64, and Athlon 64 X2.
The fastest "classic" Athlon is the Athlon 1400C. The fastest 32-bit Athlon is probably the Athlon XP 3200+.The fastest processor with the Athlon name is probably the AMD Athlon 64 FX-74.
ATHLON II is the newer processor
AMD Athlon and Turion are both AMD dual core mobile processors that are used in laptops now. They are both equally good however the Athlon gets better reviews.
ATI Radeon 4670, 4650, 4550 or 4350
No. The MSI KT4V is a Socket A motherboard. The AMD Mobile Athlon 64 3400 is Socket 754.
AMD is the manufacturer of the Athlon processor.

The Intel 6th Generation i7 is much better than the AMD Athlon.

AMD Athlon microprocessors are the awesome. They're 6 core meaning that it's processing power is equivalent to 6 amd separate processors.
The AMD Athlon 64 supports 64-bit addressing, while the AMD Athlon uses only 32-bit addressing. 64-bit addressing allows the processor to access more than 4 GB of RAM, which is increasingly important as applications become more memory hungry.
Yes, It is compatible.
there is no 200 gigahertz Athlon sorry, could you be refering to a 2000 Athlon XP?
AMD Athlon for sure. ♥
No. However, processors labeled "AMD Athlon 64 X2" aredual-core processors.
You can use an amd sempron or an amd athlon II with an am3 socket, but when am3 was released it was meant to be used with the amd phenom line of CPUs. You can use all three: amd sempron, amd athlon II & amd phenom.
No, I even think that Apple are not producing PC with an AMD CPU, they are using Intel CPUs. AMD Athlon CPU is typically found in IBM PC.
In this case, the AMD Athlon by a long shot.
Most likely not, unless its a Socket 754.
