AMD Phenom II X2 550 BE AM3 Processor

Benchmark Reviews
7 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.
  • Pros: Excellent price/performance ratio, AM3/AM2 compatibility, DDR3 support, 6MB L3 cache, Efficient 45nm process.
  • Cons: 80W TDP still higher than comparable Intel processors
