A specific core for the Athlon 64 processor.

AMD released a cheaper core for the Athlon 64 right after the initial debut of the processor. The Newcastle core came in both the Socket 754 and 939 interfaces. It featured 512 KB of L2 cache as opposed to 1 MB on the Clawhammer core.

The Newcastles on the Socket 754 platform ran at 800MHz Hypertransport frequency while the Socket 939 ones ran at 1000 MHz Hypertransport frequency.

Athlon 64s
Newcastle (754): 2800+, 3000+, 3200+, 3300+ (L2 = 256 KB), 3400+
Newcastle (939): 3000+, 3200+, 3400+, 3500+, 3800+

AMD phased out its Socket 754 platform and so Newcastles are the last of Socket 754. Socket 754 will only continue for Semprons (budget level). Socket 939 Newcastles are replaced by Winchester/Venice core CPUs which feature 90nm manufacturing (and SSE3 in Venice).
I bought a Newcastle instead of a Clawhammer today because Clawhammers were being phased out on Socket 754.

My Newcastle 3200+ rapes an Intel P4 3.2 GHz anyday.

The better city in the North East where Geordies originate from, surpasses the lesser neighbouring city Sunderland outright.
"Hey I fancy visiting the North East"
"Hmmm, how about Sunderland?"
"No way, that place is a shithole. I would much rather visit the better city of Newcastle."
"Right o"

New Castle is a city in Western Pennsylvania, 60 miles north of Pittsburgh. It is refered to as "The Castle" in a derogatory way. It's population of 35,000 people is made up mostly of Oxy Contin addicts and crackheads, with a fair amount of heroin addicts thrown in for good measure. Most of the girls are total sluts, and street gangs rule the neighborhoods. NC has been called "The world's shittiest town" and "The asshole of Pennsylvania". Avoid New Castle at all cost.
"Where can I go for a cheap whore and some smack".
"Dude, New Castle is right down the road".

"It would be a quicker trip if we detoured through The Castle".
"Fuck that shit man, I'll drive the extra hour".

The only decent people in England, if you ever have a party and want it to be bitching then you'll need to invite at least 2 scottish people, 2 newcastle people and 2 irish people and be sure to stock a lot of drink and a few towels to mop up the sick/blood out back
Last time I went out with my newcastle, scottish and irish frinds one of them fell asleep in a cupboard, I squared up to some dick who was giving me shit and we all got pished and were sick

Good times

Suprisingly diverse and cosmopolitan city in the far north of England, also home of Viz comic which reflects the rich slang and drunkenness this city has bestowed.

A suprising amount of Urban Dictionary, mine too, are influenced by Viz.
Newcastle Brown ale was specially imported by Clint Eastwood due to the fact it's so awesome. And if it's good enough for cowboys, it's good enough for you.
