Conclusion: Priced around the same as the AMD Phenom II X4 905e and performing better in most tests I can only say that this processor is a juicy piece of hardware. It is true, that 640 will consume more power than the 905e, but if you’re only after performance in office and gaming use I can recommend this...
Summary: The Core i3-530 and the Athlon II 640 proved to have around the same overall performance level, making the decision of which CPU to buy purely a decision of which brand you like the most, if you are an average user.
Conclusion: The Athlon-II X4-640 performed very well against the lower end Athlon-II X3 and X2 processors that we tested it against. When overclocked to 3.8GHz it even got close and overcame to the performance of the i7 920, mostly in single threaded or low-end environments.
Cons: Not as high performance increase as seen from the X2-260 to the X3-445
Conclusion: A new model of a CPU series is usually a pretty big deal, but six is phenomenal. Not only is AMD increasing the clock speed on these new models, but they are also keeping the top price points the same.

Excerpt: Are we tired yet of AMD pushing out slightly faster Athlon IIs and lowering the prices on the entire line? I’m not. Readers of this shouldn’t be either! Last year AMD shook up the budget processor world with the release of their well received Athlon II series of processors.

Summary: The AMD Athlon II X4 640 may not be the world’s fastest processor, though it isn’t priced like it, either! The low price of $122.00 is aimed at the main stream crowd that likes to see a great price to performance ratio.
Excerpt: Idag tar vi en titt på AMD:s nyaste fyrkärniga konsumentklass-CPU. AMD Athlon II X4 640 är en 3,0 GHz-processor och vi kommer att ta en titt hur bra den fungerar mot AMD Phenom II X4 905 och den äldre AMD Athlon II X4 635. Låt oss ta en närmare titt på den.
Excerpt: AMD har været så venlige at låne os den største Athlon II X4 CPU som man kan få fingere i, nemlig 640 modellen, ligesom den lillebror 635’eren som stort set er identisk med denne, har 640’eren en lidt hurtigere clock hastighed.
