Good performance for the money.
Might Be Able To Unlock The 4th Core.
Runs Cool Enough.
Good overall performance.
Alot of similar cpu's on the market already.
Not A Top Performer.
Might Not Be Able To Unlock the 4th Core.
Draws more power than AMD's new energy-efficient CPUs.

There's no question that AMD's pricing strategy with these five new chips was aggressive and intelligent, with all the CPUs except the Phenom II X4 910e priced below Intel's recent Core i5 and Core i3 offerings. But, at least in our tests,...-

Throughout all of our performance results, we saw both the 435 and 240e fall well behind all of the other processors in our line-up, but of all the near-20 processors in these charts, these two CPUs from AMD are only two of the four in our chart that...-

This cpu can be bought for about 80$ but is it worth it? I would personally go for the 620 which cost 20$ more but performs a bit better. You can overclock this unit though to the same speeds and it might even be possible to unlock a fourth core, I...-

PCWizKid was interested in seeing how well the standard 95W CPU triple core would result, and as expected it lied exactly in between a Ahlon II X2 and a X4. To no surprise power consumption was low and temperature readings as seen in the video review...-

Last month saw me going slightly giddy over AMD's latest budget chip and the first quad-core CPU we'd seen for under a ton. This month, as is its wont, AMD has got its triple-core Athlon II X3 mojo going and its latest chip is hitting the...80

The Althon II’s price tags are no joke. The tests seem to have all gone quite well. The overclocking alone is an awesome selling point. With stability at around 3.5GHz just on air (mind that your office/computer area may heat up) is very nice. The...-

As we can see, Athlon II X2 250 can still compete with the E6300, these processors demonstrate similar performance. So the rollout of new triple-core processors based on the new core has consolidated AMD's positions in the market segment of below...-

Athlon II X3 and X4 should be absolute Best Buy CPUs this autumn. If you need cheap, but efficient, workstation for rendering and video compression, you should consider Athlon II X4. When purchasing CPU, take a look at the box, since you can see surface...-

AMD is cranking out processors in every price range and market segment faster than most of us can keep track of. They've released everything from dual core Athlon 2 X2 to Quad core Phenom 2 X4 and done so in an almost impossibly fast schedule. The...85
