Showing 1-10 of 10
An amazing price/performance ratio that's still great for current software!

Summary: I feel most of the K10 AthlonII/PhenomII offerings ended being some of the very best cpu lineups they've done in the modern era. Depending on which "stepping" version of the processor you have, there's the possibility of unlocking a 4th core that isn't damaged, however as most enthusiast's will tell you, don't bet your money on unlocking a good core. Buy it for the value/performance that this provides, and just smile if you DO get the extra core.
Summary: I was looking for a processor that I could afford as well as fit and meet requirements of my motherboard. I coupled this Tri-Core with 4GB of ram and I'm amazed at the performance. This processor has been able to handle everything I thrown at it.I'm glad I bought it.
Summary: I bought this processor for a low budget gameing computer I was building. I had read alot of good reviews about it. AMD Athlon II x 3 worked great right out of the box. I have no complants so for been running this for about a week. Have not over clocked but may do so in the future.
Summary: This chip replaced my AMD64 X2 6000+. It is a great multi task CPU. I can burn a DVD while listening to music, surfing the web and re-encoding some video. The Athlon II's are power savers. Noticed the difference in power usage right away. I highly recommend AMD Athlon II chips if you are looking for a nice balance of cost to performance. Nice price, great performance. OC very nicely, too.
Summary: Just built a new system with this CPU and it is smooth as silk! Ok so it is not the amazing i7 or i5, but it is great for general web surfing, cd ripping, low end photo editing and AVI conversions. My system is running Win 7 64 bit Home Prem and it is fast!
Summary: Nice three core processor and nice speed. Works nicely. I decided to replace the Sempron 140 I had on my motherboard before deciding on this processor. Sempron 140 was 2.7GHz.(Opened second core to make Athlon II x 2 4400e clocked to 3.23GHz.) I thought buying a three core would be a little better to work with.So I bought this Athlon II x 3 440 3.0GHz To my surprise I was able to open a 4th core. Now with the 4th core open, it reads as a Phenom II x 4 B40.
Excerpt: AMD Athlon II X3 440 / 3 GHz After spending the last several years assembling new build PC's I would like to share my experience with AMD Athlon processors, there are several processors available on the market today and like all technology there will always be something bigger and better than the previous model released.
Pros: Fairly priced in comparison to similar products, Reliable AMD quality assured !
AMD Athlon II X3 440 / 3 GHz: A Dependable Workhorse for the Budget Conscious
2 November 2011
Summary: This processor is in the middle of AMDs budget Athlon II range for the AM3 socket (although it is compatible with AM2+ motherboards as well). As it's in the middle of the budget range, you'd be forgiven for thinking this is a very basic processor, mainly because it is. It does however pack quite a lot of punch into a very competivly priced package. The main performance difference between the Athlon and Phenom II families is the L3 cache and generally a lower clock speed.
Pros: Very competitive price for a decent processor
Cons: Slower than some newer Athlons and only 3-cores
