Specs

Product Features

True Multi-Core Processing - The extensive AMD64 architectural optimizations and features enable thorough integration of multiple cores within the same processor, with each core having its own L1 and L2 caches.

AMD Dedicated Multi-Cache - Each core has its own dedicated L2 cache, which enables simultaneous independent core access to L2 cache, eliminating the need for cores to arbitrate for cache access. This helps reduce latency on L2 cache accesses.

AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology - Silicon feature-set enhancements designed to improve the performance, reliability, and security of both existing and future virtualization environments.

AMD PowerNow! 3.0 Technology - The latest power management technologies that deliver performance on demand when you need it, and power savings when you don't.

HyperTransport&traqde; 3.0 Technology - Third-generation HyperTransport technology interface improves performance, supporting transfer speeds up to 4.4GT/s.

Simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit Computing - AMD64 technology enables a breakthrough approach to 64-bit computing that doubles the number of registers in the processor and allows PC users to use today?s 32-bit software applications while enabling them to also use the next generation of 64-bit applications.

Didn't you mean to say you're stupid?

Oh the irony

This is a great buy for a quad

£70 quid for a quad! Bargain!

Some of these can be cache unlocked to full Phenom II from what I've seen around.

Looks unlikely - Hexus.net examined their sample and found it had no L3 cache memory in existence, so nothing to unlock:

NIce price for a quad.

The phenom II x2 550 is looking nice as well for about the same price.

It runs at 3.1ghz so I'm thinking its going to be faster for most day to day computing tasks that aren't multi threaded.

Hmmm decisions, decisions.....

Got one of these last week with a phenom II x2 550 Black Edition for my media centre,It now runs at 3.5 Ghz and it unlocked the other 2 cores with the flick of a bios switch.great board for the money.

I'd go for the 550, as it has an unlocked multiplier (you can clock upwards easily) and some of them successfully unlock to a quad. I built a PC using the 550 and it runs very nicely, quick, cool.

Good price for this chip.
#18
I'm another with the 550, runs nice and cool at 3.5mhz and very fast.

I'd have the 550 over this. still a good price
#19
my x2 550, runs as a quad on a gigabyte ud5p at 3.8ghz in vista and win 7 and 3.9ghz in xp, best cpu ive ever had.

* update 16/09/09. AMD has informed HEXUS that a number of Athlon II X4 620 and 630 chips will use the existing Deneb architecture but with the L3 cache disabled. For all intents and purposes, the Deneb and Propus chips will appear as identical models to the system.


http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=20230&page=2

So some may indeed unlock to give you the disabled L3 cache after all.
