If we are
talking about a computer, then it can't be separated from
some basic components. For whether or not a device is good
computers depend on the quality of computer components
that is. One component that has a large influence on
computer performance is a processor.
Processor itself is a software task to process a command that comes from other computer components. That said, the processor is the brain part of the computer itself. Without the presence of a processor, the computer cannot be used properly.
At present, one of the producers that is quite aggressive in developing the processor for the PC, server, and other gadgets is AMD. AMD itself stands for Advanced Micro Devices . AMD company is a company that is very well known in producing various kinds of processors, especially for gamers. Because functions of the processor greatly pampered the users or users who wanted the game on their computers to run optimally.
Based on the types used, the following sequence of AMD processors from generation to the next generation.  1.AMD K5
First of all
our initial version of AMD is made, namely AMD K5. AMD K5 is the first processor
made by AMD. At first AMD K5 was only an alternative device
from Intel. However, even so AMD K5 is the first processor device
which can synchronize on x86 type architecture.
Unfortunately, because at that time Intel was very dominating, many motherboards did not yet support this AMD K5 device. When there is a renewal in the BIOS section, finally AMD can synchronize with the motherboard perfectly.
2. AMD K6
After the success made by AMD K5, the AMD company made a renewal called AMD K6. The AMD K6 can support all motherboards that initially only support Intel processors. From here the competition between Intel and AMD starts.
The K6 series also has other types namely AMD K6, AMD K6-2 and AMD K6-III. The difference from the three types is just the speed.
Around 2000, AMD re-launched the new processor, AMD Duron. Initially AMD was named Spitfire because it was based on its core part which uses the Thunderbird version. In his day, AMD Duro was one of the highest current processors by AMD.
Because, the price is cheap, the performance produced is quite satisfying. Unfortunately, at this time AMD Duron has been discontinued.
4. AMD Athlon
After quite successful with AMD Duron, the next generation re-emerged which was named the AMD Athlon. AMD Athlon is a 1945 type of micro-quality AMD processor. Therefore, AMD Athlon includes AMD's flagship product.
At that time, AMD Athlon competed with Intel Pentium III which dominated the market. Another advantage of this proseccor is that on the part of the system you can use multiprocessors. That way, one computer can have two AMD Athlon processors simultaneously.
5. AMD Athlon 64
The success of the AMD Athlon makes the AMD company make its "sequel" namely the AMD Athlon 64. A striking difference with the Athlon version is on the socket section. There are three different sockets on this processor, namely 754, 939, and 940.
Of course these three sockets have different functions. In the socket 754 section, there is a controller that can support the DDR memory section. In the Socket 939 section, there is a memory controller that supports multichannel memory. Another advantage of this processor is that it can synchronize with computers that implement 64bit operating systems.
6. AMD Athlon 64 FX
AMD can work well on computers that implement 32bit and 64bit operating systems. In addition, the most striking advantage in this processor is that there is an antivirus in it. The antivirus used is Enhanced Virus Protection Antivirus.
This processor is very suitable for computers that very often use applications and software related to high graphics such as video or audio applications or software and games.
AMD Sempron was created as a rival for Intel which has launched Intel Celeron. AMD Sempron has two types of processor socket used, namely AMD Sempron socket A and AMD Senpron Socket 754. AMD sempron can only run on computers that implement 32bit operating systems only.
8.AMD 64 V2 Dual Core
Surely you are no stranger to the name "Dual Core". Yup, AMD is indeed aiming as a rival for Intel which has disbursed the Core duo version. AMD can run on computers that use 64bit operating systems. The target market for this processor is users or users who are more engaged in multimedia on a regular basis.
9. AMD Opteron
AMD launched a processor that is more focused on server computers and focusing on workstations, namely AMD Opteron. AMD Optern has two different chache, namely Chache level 1 and level 2. The difference between these two cache is in the amount of data used. At level 1 the data is 128 KB while at level 2 has data of 1024 KB.
is a processor made around 2008. This processor has a core
as much as 4-core. This processor too
designed using Hypertransport 3, L2 cache and also DDR2 / 3.
That is the order of AMD processors from generation to generation, hope this article provides benefits to all of you.
