The main difference is that the san deigo has a 1meg l2 cache other than that they are quite similar in terms of features.

A fair bit the san diegos lowest speed is 3700+ and will overclock alot higher than that. Also the larger cache is obviously a big advantage. The san diego cores are what used in the new fx processors.

Yeah but between the Venice 3500+ and the San Diego 3700+ there is only a 1~5% overall performance increase.

The bigger L2 Cache as far as I can see makes little or no difference to any benchmarks. Although the newer Architecture is better for overclocking, if you want to overclock.

Benchmarks arent what you measure a cpu by its a real performance and the san diego enjoys a big advantage from games and a 5% performance increase is a fair bit in terms of a cpu also 5 percent is the speed difference.

"The Thermalright XP90 heatsink and 80mm Vantec Tornado fan were able to keep temperatures in the 50 degree Celsius area. In many cases the Athlon64 3700+ clocked at 2.81 GHz performed faster than an Athlon64 3500+ running along at 3.05 GHz, thanks of course to the larger L2 cache. The benchmark results illustrate nicely how important L2 cache size is to 3D applications and games."

Illustrates overclocking and the advantage of the 1 meg cache remeber the stock speeds on the 3500 venice and the 3700 are the same out the box at 2.2GHz so that extra equivalency rating is all down to the cache.
