Similar in almost all respects to the slightly more expensive Phenom II X4 955, the 945 runs 200MHz slower, and does not feature an unlocked CPU multiplier which allows for enthusiasts to more easily overclock. Perfect in this respect for computer enthusiasts and gamers, the chip performs admirably - the Phenom II X4 945 comes close to matching higher level C2Q offerings from Intel while being priced for slightly less. Available immediately, the X4 945 costs $225.
