  • Summary: So, how is it? I’m sure you skipped all the way here just to find out! In any case, The AMD Phenom II x4 840 3.2GHz performed very well. Not Phenom well, but definitely Athlon x4 well. The lack of L3 cache is definitely a speed killer, but when you look at that $102 price tag you begin to wonder why you should care. So, why should you be interested in this?

  • Excerpt: AMD has been around for a long time in one form or another. When I first started working with AMD CPUs they were making 2x86 CPUs under license from Intel. Not too long after that they bought up a small and promising company named NexGen. From there things got interesting.

AMD Phenom II X4 840 & 975 Black Edition test

PC Ekspert
17 May 2011
  • Conclusion: AMD je poliranjem svog 45nm SOI proizvodnog procesa i ubrzavanjem procesora uspio Intelu ostati za petama. Sandy Bridge procesori su kao što vidimo u pravilu brži od Phenoma II, no ne za puno i ne u svim testovima. Taktovi su dakle viši, performanse bolje, ali je zato potrošnja niža. Ovime je AMD znatno poboljšao omjer potrošnje i performansi što oba ova procesora čini iznimno zanimljivima. 840 je zamaskirani Athlon II, no performansama ipak zaslužuje Phenom II ime.
  • Pros: Cijena, potrošnja, dobar overclocking potencijal za Propus jezgru, osjeti se nedostatak L3 memorije.
  • Cons: Performanse u igrama (pogotovo na minimalnom broju FPS-a), Propus zamaskiran u Phenom II X4 odijelo.

AMD Phenom II X4 840 mit ohne L3-Cache im Test

Au-Ja!

  • Conclusion: Fazit Hätte AMD unseren heutigen Testkandidaten als Athlon II X4 650 geschickt und einen anvisierten Verkaufspreis von knapp unter 100 Euro genannt, hätten kaum etwas zu meckern gehabt. Wir hätten zwar darauf hingewiesen, dass man zu Straßenpreisen ab 124 Euro bereits einen Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition bekommt, der eine höhere Rechenleistung und einen frei wählbaren Multiplikator bietet, doch an und für sich gäbe es weder am Produkt selbst noch an der Preisgestaltung...

AMD zündet den Nachbrenner: Phenom II X4 975 und X4 840 im Kurztest

  • Excerpt: Das Jahr ist erst wenige Tage alt, da präsentiert AMD schon zwei neue Prozessoren. Der AMD Phenom II X4 975 soll dabei den erst wenige Woche alten AMD Phenom II X4 970 als schnellster Vierkern-Prozessor aus dem Hause AMD ablösen und Intels neuer "Sandy Bridge"-Flotte Paroli bieten. Der Phenom II X4 840 soll hingegen mit einem Preis um die 100 Euro herum eher bei der preisbewussten Kundschaft wildern. Ob dies gelingt? Wir werden es im Test untersuchen.
