Hi, Ive just built a new system with a x2 4400, dfi lanparty nf3 ultra (AGP) board, and 2gig corsair sms3200c2
Having upgraded from a barton 3000 i really dont see any speed improvement, ive been thru my bios and everything is set as it should be, system is running at 2x1000mhz ht, 400 fsb, and chip is detected ok as an ACPI multiprocessor pc with 2 cpu's listed under 'processor' in dev manager, only thing is, i downloaded the x2 64 bit cpu driver from amd site, version 1.2.2.2 and when i click on properties of my cpu in dev manager it list driver details as 1.2.2.0 from 2004, why is it not reporting the newer driver in there?!?
I keep reading about peoples systems with same chip flying along but i still get an hourglass now and then when i click on firefox or some other programetc, i bought this chip cuz i was 'tired of looking at the hourglass'
Can anyone give me a benchmark for this system, i really need to compare mine against somebody elses, i think ive convinced my self that summit aint right, i just really expected more from a 350 quid chip
any clues about the driver date issue for the chip would be a great help too, thx in advance
