  • Before getting into our overall conclusions, I must give kudos to AMD for being the first company out the door with a sub-$100 quad-core processor. Any way you look at it, reaching this point is impressive, because once again, quad-cores haven't even ...

  • In most scenarios Athlon II X4 620 was faster than an Intel-based system on the same price range (Pentium E6300). The only important exception was on Photoshop CS4, where Pentium E6300 was 24% faster than Athlon II X4 620, and file compression with Wi...

  • Lower gaming performance, Not the best choice for die hard overclockers, High stock voltage
  • Even if AMD is not leading the market in terms of pure brute performance, it still finds categories where it can brand the product with "world's first". This time, it's the world's first and still only quad-core processor with a price under $1...

  • Abstract:  As most enthusiasts can tell you, the Intel Core i7 lineup is a formidable powerhouse of processors. But you will likely also hear in the next breath that they are very expensive. Both statements are true, and I doubt many people can argue those facts....

  • The competition is relatively peachy for the new processor. We assumed that it will be slower than the Q8200 and that it would compete with Q7x models. But in fact these processors are on a par. Moreover, its a cheaper model, so the 630 and higher pr...

  • At launched this week the Athlon II X4 620 is selling for only $99 which makes this one of the best deals for a quad core CPU on the market. The results in performance and temperature gave an expected result by outperforming previous Athlons x2s and...

  • Our timed benchmarks showed evidence that the Athlon II X4 630 and 620 perform slightly slower than Intels cheapest quad core, the Q8200, in mundane everyday tasks like anti-virus scanning and file archiving. However, there is $20~$40 price differenc...

  • The AMD Propus core is not bad at all. While removing the L3 cache hurts performance in games, the overall scores show it can come close to the i5 750 (without Turbo) at half the cost. The only disadvantage AMD still faces is the incredibly high power...
