  • Summary: For a budget chip, the 255 and 260 perform well. The cutting of the L3 cache is disappointing, but understandable as a means of cutting production costs. The price difference between them is only about $10 and that still puts both of them cheaper than the other Intel alternatives. The next step up would be one of the Phenom II’s. The lowest end chip in that line is still more expensive than the 260.

AMD 65W Quad and Dual Core Processors: Phenom II X4 910e and Athlon II X2 255

  • Conclusion: The AMD Phenom II X4 910e is an interesting chip. This processor costs about the same as the faster chip with higher power consumption. The 60 watts of power saved by the Phenom II X4 910e may not seem a lot, it will adds up over the lifespan of the ownership. The power saved will roughly translates to approximately $20~30 saved in an year that itself would pay the extra cost that need to be invested into the chip.

AMD Phenom II X2 555 BE & Athlon II X2 255, X3 440, X4 635

  • Conclusion: Iz svega viđenog zadržavamo pravo na mišljenje kako je najbolja opcija nabavka nekog od četverojezgrenih modela, tj. Athlona II X4 620, 630 ili 635 jer pružaju najviše za uloženo (620 je u našim dućanima oko 690kn, 630 oko 750kn, dok još ipak nova 635-ica košta oko 900kn). X2 i X3 modeli su jednostavno premalo cjenovno odvojeni da bi bili zanimljivi, a naravno živimo u svijetu multithreadinga pa je investicija u četiri jezgre sasvim opravdana.
  • Pros: Overclocking potencijal.
  • Cons: Niske performanse, cijena bliska X3 modelima.
