it was good

  • Summary: very good little basic quad core at stock 3Ghz, paired with a 550Ti it ran nearly everything i threw at it flawlessly. cpu mark is quite low compared to today's standards. just being slightly above my Athlon II x3 2.9Ghz. its a good solid budget quad core by amd for a mid-high end gaming pc build. don't expect miracles though its certainly not close to an i5 or i7.

  • Summary: replaced amd rangor dual core in a dell inspiron 570 with little problem....just make sure of compatibility. running corel video x3 studio was a cinch with no more app crashes....definitely noisier, but well worth the upgrade.

Best right now processor for $100

  • Summary: yes, the Athlon II does not have any L3 cache, but that fact doesnt really hurt the performance very much, when you compare a Phenom II X4 to an Athlon II X4, the Athlon is more worth the money, but if you have a little more cash lying around the Phenom in general will offer you great performance for a modest price increase, plus the ability to overclock a great deal, where the Athlon doesnt overclock very well at all comparatively.

Good performance and value for everyday use

  • Summary: Got this for my sons computer which was an upgrade from a duel core chip. This chip runs great for everyday tasks although he uses his machine for gaming hasn't noticed a big difference in performance but overall this runs cool and not hot like some of the other AMD chips. It also has a 3 year manufacturers warranty. If you do gaming then this is probably not for you but for surfing the net and multitasking it runs great. Packaged well and Amazon service again great.

  • Summary: Pretty nice CPU for the price, Never seen a Quad core CPU this cheap from a Retail trader, comes boxed with pre-applied thermal compound and stock heatsink and fan, Installation super quick and easy booted up first time no problems, only 2mb of cache unlike the better phenom type's but thats what i expected from a budget cpu like this.

Great CPU for the price

PCGUY1, Amazon

  • Summary: This AMD640 CPU is a great quad core processor at a great price. The processor is quite fast and can handle many tasks when using your PC, great for medium gaming and also general computer use. The processor is also good at rendering so if you render it isn't as bad as you would think. I recommend getting this CPU, the only bad thing is the overclockability i managed to get it to 3.25 ghz on Stock cooling but overall the product is good.
