Summary: For me this was an upgrade from an Athlon 64 X2 3800 (2GHz), I was hoping for a bigger boost in performance, it did improve, I was just hoping for more. The one I got was the 125w thermal output unit, not the 89w unit I was looking for, but the description didn't specify.
The Processor is GREAT ... the vendor, on the other hand ...
23 January 2008
Summary: I'll start out by saying that the product itself is all that I expected, and then some. I also bought it for $77.00, and was happily surprised to find a processor this good at this price. I was, however, quite unhappy with the performance of the vendor, Komputerbay.
Summary: I bought this for $77 and am very happy with it. It replaced my AMD Sempron 2.3GHZ and I have noticed a very big difference. I have a Dell 531S inspiron desktop. The only problem I Have right now is cooling, When I start doing to much it gets to hot and so I am looking for a better CPU Cooler.
Summary: THIS WAS AN UPGRADE FOR A INSPIRON 531. IT WAS RUNNING A AMD ATHLON 64X2 4400. THIS CHIP, 2 MORE MEGS OF RAM, AND A ATI 4350DMSB2 GRAPHICS CARD HAD THIS MIDDLE OF THE ROAD COMPUTER RUNNING AS FAST AS YOU COULD ASK FOR, WITH EYE P0PPING GRAPHICS.
