AMD Phenom II X4 905E

ITP.net
29 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The small ‘e' tacked onto this Phenom II's model denotes that it is an energy efficient CPU. Looking at the chip's maximum thermal design power (TDP) confirms this, as it is rated for a maximum consumption of just 65-Watts. When strapped into our test bed this processor proved to be a cool operator; it's idle and load temperatures were just 39- and 44-degrees Celsius, using a stock AMD cooler.

AMD Phenom II X4 905e CPU Reviewed – More Performance Without the Watts

Futurelooks
6 October 2009
  • Summary: When one looks at the raw numbers, this CPU looks like it’s a bit too expensive. 2.5GHz processors are easy to come by and relatively cheap. The 905e requires explanation as to why it may be worth the dollar value placed on it. Requiring explanations like these tend to place products in a niche, which is where this CPU is headed. In looking around for a place that sells this CPU, I found Newegg had it deactivated.

  • Conclusion: This processor sells for around 180$ which is a very low price for the performance you get. I have been saying this before and I will say it again, AMD is on a comeback streak. They have been producing processors for a low price and great performance lately and I believe they have caught up with Intel slowly even though they are not yet there. This cpu runs very cool and requires less power than most on the market, a thermal power of 65W is half compared to the 955 cpu.

  • Excerpt: How much are you willing to pay for improved power consumption and lower thermals? If you're a home cinema addict, reduced noise and smaller form factors are certainly desirable. For a price, the AMD Phenom II X4 905E promises to make all that possible.

AMD Phenom II X4 905e

  • Conclusion: Energooszczędne procesory cieszą się dziś dużym powodzeniem. Zazwyczaj w zamian za pewne niedogodności (jak niewielka podatność na overclocking) pozwalają zaoszczędzić nieco pieniędzy podczas płacenia rachunków za prąd i stawiają mniejsze wymagania układom zasilającym na płycie głównej. Do takiej serii należy AMD Phenom II X4 905e. Sprawdziliśmy czy potwierdza on przytoczone wyżej reguły.
  • Pros: Bardzo dobra wydajność, Umiarkowany pobór mocy, Doskonale się podkręca
  • Cons: Zablokowany mnożnik sprawia, że podkręcanie procesora jest trudne, Dość drogi

  • Excerpt: Ännu en AMD-processor nådde vår brevlåda för en vecka sedan, det är Phenom 2 905e som är tänkt att vara ett mellannivå-processor. Man kan köpa denna CPU för runt 180 $, så det är inte illa prissatt om prestandan är skaplig. Vi kommer att jämföra den mot en CPU av högre prestanda, Phenom 2 955 och mellannivå-processorn 940 från AMD för att se var vi kan placera denna processor prestandamässigt.

AMD Phenom II X3 705e и Phenom II X4 905e

  • Summary: При сравнении исключительно по тестам производительности, сложно назвать однозначного лидера. Но с учетом тестов энергопотребления, преимущество AMD-платформы становится вполне отчетливым. Сами процессоры Phenom II привлекательнее для построения экономичных систем за счет более гибких схем динамического управления частотой и напряжением.

  • Excerpt: Green IT ist das Marketing-Schlagwort der vergangenen Jahre. Auch AMD verspricht mit den neuen, besonders umweltfreundlichen Prozessoren AMD Phenom II X3 705e und AMD Phenom X4 950e ein Stück von der Green IT. Doch ob man wirklich so umweltbewusst mit den e-Modellen fährt, wollen wir in diesem Test ausführlich beleuchten.
