PCWorld.com - AMD's New Athlon 64 FX-57 Rocks on Games: "We tested a reference system from AMD configured with the new chip; 1GB of DDR400 memory; a 10,000-rpm, 74GB Western Digital hard drive; an NVidia 6800 Ultra graphics card with 256MB of RAM; and Windows XP Professional. The unit earned a score of 116 on WorldBench 5, which ties for the second highest score on this benchmark with a previously tested AMD reference system using a 2.4-GHz dual-core Athlon 64 X2 4800+ chip (the rest of the configuration is identical). It also bested the 107 average score of two previously tested systems with the Athlon 64 FX-55, as well as the 102 score of a reference Intel system using the 64-bit 3.73-GHz Pentium Extreme Edition chip."
