AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 Processor Review
29 May 2010
Summary: AMD is kicking off 2010 by introducing new low-power versions of some its most popular processors and bumping up the speed of a select few Phenom II and Athlon II CPUs. Today PCSTATS is looking at the 3.2GHz AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition processor.
Conclusion: The Phenom II X2 555 is a good CPU depending on how you look at it. In one aspect you have the high chance of being able to unlock it into a quad core which makes this chip a true bargain. However not every single chip will unlock.
Summary: The AMD Phenom II X2 555 is undoubtedly a faster chip than competing Intel processors in this price bracket, but what really sets it apart is the potential it offers to those willing to experiment.
Pros: - Great gaming performance, - Effortless overclocking, - Many chips unlockable, - Outperforms the G9650
Conclusion: I’m honestly suprised about the performance of AMD Phenom II X2 555BE. It offers good dual-core performance while being a great value, it can also be modded to full X3 or X4 processor. Of course this depends if your sample can be unlocked, but there’s a chance for it.
Conclusion: This processor update from AMD is a minor one that's unlikely to impact its bottom line or Intel's for that matter. In fact, it seems that yet again, AMD is dodging the chip giant's all-conquering Nehalem based processors with cheaper ones that expand its budget offerings even further.
Conclusion: Jak sama nazwa wskazuje opisywany procesor to układ dwurdzeniowy. Nominalna częstotliwość pracy zegara wynosi tutaj 3200 MHz, ale odblokowany mnożnik pozwala na niezwykle łatwe podkręcanie.
Pros: Atrakcyjna cena procesora, Niska cena całej platformy, Elastyczność w dobieraniu platformy, Dobra wydajność, Dobrze się podkręca, Bardzo łatwy w podkręcaniu dzięki odblokowanemu mnożnikowi
