AMD Zone brengt ons een comparison tussen 8 verschillende Athlon Gold Fingers Devices, kleine printplaatjes die je op je Ahlon plant waarna je met switches eenvoudig o.a. de multiplier kan tweaken. Hieronder een handig overzichtje over de uitkomst per criteria:
Ease Of Use
The Outside Loop Afterburner! wins this category hands down. With only 3 dials to adjust you won't have any problems with getting settings confused.
The Easy MHz and the Northwind Rev2 are very cheap considering the Northwind Rev2 has shipping included. Honorable mention goes to the K7OC.
None of the cards cover all of the possible settings, but the Afterburner!, Easy MHz, K7OC, and Northwind Rev2 are tied for the most tweakable GFD.
The Afterburner! is great because of it's 3 dial design. The Northwind Rev2 is unique because it does not need an external power supply. The Maximzer stands out because it mounts to the back of the Athlon.
I prefer the Afterburner!. With it's ease of use and wide range of settings, the Afterburner! is particularly suited to my needs. I constantly use it on several Athlons for tweaking, so it has become my GFD of choice.
