AMD Athlon II X4 600e


$133.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built on the latest 45nm fabrication process - allows for cheaper chips at higher clock speeds (performance) while remaining cooler, more energy efficient. 45W TDP - very cool for a desktop CPU, easily cooled quietly. Full quad-core CPU.

The Cons:Lacks the L3 cache found on the higher level Phenom II line. Slower individual clock speed - poor for power-hungry single process programs such as games.

The AMD Athlon II X4 600e is a 64-bit quad core processor based on the Phenom II architecture. As part of the “Propus” family, this 45 nanometer chip is designed for the AM2+/AM3 motherboard socket and has a TDP energy rating of 45 watts.
