Very fast clocked budget Quad Core.
Lots of computing power in multithreaded applications.

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...
