AMD Phenom II X2 550 BE AM3 Processor
15 December 2009
Conclusion: It's been a while since AMD had a true dual core competitor to Intel's Core 2 Duo family, but I think it's safe to say that day has come. Throughout our tests, the AMD Phenom II X2 550 BE was able to keep up and even outpace our Intel E7400. Memory intensive benchmarks and applications, in particular, seem to favor the X2 550. The X2 550 earns high marks in construction quality as well.
