Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data inside! 86...

This time we'd like to offer you the summarized test results of as many as 71 processors. This generally marks the end of the year, not the end of another test method's life cycle (like the last time). We believe this summary contains all important...

Although we've tested most processors from Intel, no due attention has been paid to a lot of CPUs from AMD. Today we shall make amends and examine as many as five affordable processors from this company. Testbeds Today's lineup to test will include...

This CPU is a very stable choice if you plan to just use it for normal use or for overclocking. You get a lot of performance for 85$ and with some overclocking you can boost the performance much higher. I really think this CPU would be a good choice...

While Intel is the one that releases the fastest high-end CPUs first, AMD still has the edge on the value segment. On the USD 100 price range there is no better CPU than the new Phenom II X4 840 (3.2 GHz). Its main competitor is the Pentium E6800...

With the recently introduced Athlon II X4 645 processor, AMD came at the doorstep of Phenom II X4 performance, and instead of making Athlon II X4 series faster than Phenom II X4 entry models, some re branding came in place. With frequencies above 3.10...

Z naszych testów wyraźnie wynika, że na chwilę obecną Intel dysponuje dość dużą przewagą nad AMD i nic dziwnego - Phenomy II pamiętają czasy Core 2 Duo i Quad, zaś architektura Bulldozer, na jakiej są oparte modele FX, cierpi na chorobę wieku...

Liano da qualche mese e Bulldozer da qualche giorno, sono queste le famiglie di CPU che, lanciate sul mercato da AMD, segnano la svolta nella proposta di processori della società con sede a Sunnyvale. Nonostante ciò, la casa di Redmond consapevole...

International Review By PC for Alla Extreme on

Även om vi har resultat från många processorer skall vi se mer detaljerat på åtta modeller som är relativt nya. Vi har enbart en ny Intel-processor med denna gång och det är Core i7 990X Extreme Edition. Enligt många är det den snabbaste processorn...

International Review By Rbmods.se on

Den här processorn är ett mycket stabilt val om man planerar att bara använda den för normal användning eller för överklockning. Man får mycket prestanda för 830 kr och med lite överklockning kan man öka prestandan mycket högre. Jag tycker verkligen...

AMD uzun zamandır unutulan Phenom II X4 800 ailesine yeni bir model getirdi. Ancak bu model tam olarak Phenom II X4 800 serisi değil; daha doğrusu bizim bildiğimiz anlamıyla bir Phenom II X4 800 değil. Yine de 100 Dolara "halk tipi dört çekirdek"...

International Review By Clube do Hardware on

Enquanto a Intel é pioneira no lançamento dos processadores mais rápidos do mercado, a AMD ainda tem a vantagem no segmento de entrada. Na faixa dos US$ 100 (nos EUA) não há processador melhor do que o novo Phenom II X4 840 (3,2 GHz). O seu principal...

International Review By TweakPC on

Daher gilt beim Prozessorenkauf wie immer in letzter Zeit, dass Anwender sich im Klaren darüber sein müssen, was besser zu den eigenen Anforderungen passt: Ein Quad-Core mit mehr Takt oder für's etwa gleiche Geld ein Six-Core mit weniger Takt. In dieser Hinsicht macht der...

V testu tedy budou tři skupiny procesorů, a to tři nové výkonné procesory Phenom II, k tomu výběr třech starých procesorů Core i3, Core i5 a Core i7 a nakonec přibydou čtyři nové procesory Core zasahující do stejných řad, které mají ovšem před...

El Phenom II x4 840 es un excelente procesador. Tiene un desempeño espectacular para su precio y la ausencia de caché L3 no genera diferencia alguna en escenarios de la vida real a menos que seas un profesional del área multimedia, donde esos...

AMD'nin yeni Bulldozer mimarili işlemci ailesi çıkmadan önce, güncel K10 mimariye sahip işlemcilerini sunmaya devam ediyor. En pahalı işlemcileri 250-350 Dolar aralığında olan 6 çekirdekli Phenom II X6 işlemcileri, yeni mimari öncesi fiyat performansa...

En budget venlig CPU fra AMD's hånd. Sådan tror jeg bedst, man kan beskrive denne CPU. Og da den kommer fra de samme wafer som deres 6 kernede processorer, er det muligt med lidt leden af finde en billig 6 kernede CPU, hvis man gider at kaste sig...
