A powerfull CPU for older motherboards at a low cost!
9 April 2014
Summary: I needed to upgrade my old computer which had a Athlon 2.7 GHz CPU with 1 MB cache memory. The old CPU was to weak to handle my newer graphic card. Though, the motherboard is old and I do not afford to buy new parts so a Phenom II seemed to be the best solution for me. This CPU is a triple-core with totally 8 MB of cache memory and it works great with my graphic card, the games I'm playing runs much smother with the Phenom II CPU.
Summary: This is a really great upgrade if you find that your rebuilt computer it is kind of slow. I actually purchased 2 of these. I liked it so much in one computer I wanted it in the other. Both computers have the same exact mobo. I had a problem with one, when I installed the cpu, it made Windows run crazy. So I had to reinstall the old AMD 8550 and I still await a replacement from the seller. Good thing that the seller has a 30 day return policy.
Summary: AMD llleva años compitiendo con Intel y yo siempre he sido de los que ha apostado por Intel pero al comprar este procesador AMD me ha demostrado que es capaz de llevarse la medalla. Si buscas un procesador potente y no quieres gastarte lo que te gastas con Intel que siempre es 30-50 € mas que por un procesador AMD con las mismas caracteristicas.Al final se aplica un poco lo de pagar la marca, asi que este procesador te ofrece unas caracteristicas parecidas al conocido...
Pros: Te da lo que quieres
Cons: Por poner alguna, se calienta algo algo más que los Intel
