Default 64 - 3200?

They have a 3200 with 1 meg of L2 at 754 pins. A 3200 with 512 K at 939
pins. I don't get it. Can someone explain the difference in the pins vs. the
L2 cache and I think the 1 meg at 754 pins would be the better one, but why
less pins and more cache?

The 939's have dual channel memory for a start. The current 754 edition
of the 3200's have 512k of cache, it was only the first release that had
1Mb caches.

I believe the 3200+ (2.0 GHz) 1M L2 754 (which I have) has been succeeded
by 3200+ (2.2 GHz) 512K 754, which AMD likely figures costs them less for
similar performance (depending upon the application).

754 only does single channel RAM, 939 can do dual channel (but costs
more).

If you are upgrading an existing system.
A Socket 754 may be more worth it than socket 939.

Alternatively, you can get a system that supports either one
such as Asrock combo-z.
