AMD Athlon-II X4-640 CPU ADX640WFGMBOX
25 June 2010
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. As I mentioned during the testing, that is pitting a 3.8GHz quad-core processor against a 2.66GHz quad-core processor, and the slower still generally comes out ahead, but that really is to be expected from a CPU...
Cons: Not as high performance increase as seen from the X2-260 to the X3-445
