Default Clawhammer or Newcastleor Winchester?

What is the advantages/disadvantage of Clawhammer, Newcastle, Winchester AMD 64 chips? I am looking at buying 3400, 3500 or 3700 for a 939 board. I am not a gamer.....

there are no 3400 or 3700 939pin cpu's. winchetser cores are the newest and oc the best.

Phosoho510, I had thought of going with Intel but also want to get the most bang for the buck......knowing that Intel is recommended for nongamers.

I have a SKT 939 3400+...

Whinchester run cooler and .1 volt less meaning usually they overclock better

Newcastle are slightly cheaper, and to some unnoticably faster in benchmarks. Like .1% peformance increase.

I believe clawhammer cores have large 1MB L2 cache. Newcastle and Winchester cores are only found in the newer socket 939 based Athlon 64s. Winchester cores use a superior 90nm process which means they run on less voltage than the 130nm Newcastle cores, which basically translates into less heat dissipation.

clawhammer = 13 micron wafer, 1MB L2 cache

New Castle = 13 micron wafer, 512K L2 cache

Winchester = 9 micron wafer, 512K L2 (so far, likepy to get increased in future)

if you arent gamer, better go for winchester, cooler and newer.
