AMD Phenom 2 X4 840 3.2GHz Socket AM3
Very fast clocked budget Quad Core.
Lots of computing power in multithreaded applications.
Compatibility with older chipsets.
Excellent price/performance ratio.
DDR3 and DDR2 support.
Cheaper Propus core used for Phenom II branding.
Lack of L3 cache is noticeable in some cases.
Calling it a PhenomII makes me want an L3 cache.
