AMD Athlon II X3 405e


$102.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Includes support for virtualization standard (as all AMD chips do). The latest architecture, built on the latest 45nm fabrication process. 45W TDP - easy to cool, can be done effectively with reduced noise.

The Cons:No L3 cache due to the fact that it is not in the higher end Phenom II line. Low individual core speed - poor for power-hungry single threaded applications such as games. Typically more expensive than faster processors with looser thermal output ratings.

The AMD Athlon II X3 405e is a 64-bit triple core processor based on the Phenom II architecture. As the fastest low-power triple core processor in the “Rana” family, this 45 nanometer chip is designed for the AM2+/AM3 socket and has a TDP rating of 45 watts.
