My System Specs


Intel screwed AMD over with their Core i5 and i7. AMD can do nothing but release products like these and drop prices on their CPUs for the time being.

Again, I hope AMD stays competitive and doesn't go bankrupt. According to the admin of Legit Reviews, it seems that AMD's stock is actually rising. Of course, there could be many factors to this, but wow.

So to get back on topic...I want this CPU! Quad core for the cheap without having to worry bout whether it'll unlock or not! Plus it's rumored that the early Athlon II X4 are based on the Phenom cores, so I wonder if you can unlock the L3 cache of those CPUs. I also wonder how it'll overclock as the new Athlons mature and how it'll compare to my overclocked E7200.

Edit: Wonder what folding is like on them. I assume it supports Virtualization?

Hmm. Legit Reviews seem to have gotten a nice overclock out of their Athlon II X4 630. AMD Athlon II X4 620 and Athlon II X4 630 Processor Review - Overclocking the Athlon II X4 630 - Legit Reviews
