That may be part of what’s happening with the BE and , whose model numbers are just a tad higher than the recently introduced Pentium E and E dual-core CPUs. As such, we need to look elsewhere for more reliable comparisons. More intriguingly, these CPUs are bargain priced. Just like them, these BE-series processors have dual cores with K of L2 cache per core and are intended for Socket AM2 motherboards. For games, the number of threads is largely irrelevant, as long as you have at least 2 cores preferably 4 , and hyperthreading can sometimes even hit performance. More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

The new scheme is intended to provide more information about a processor at a glance and to confuse AMD’s enemies, rpocessor it victory on the field of battle. It’s low cost and energy efficient 45 watts. Dual-core technology is like having two processors, and two working together is better and faster than one working alone.

LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Bear in mind that although it is cual to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck. Upgraded my single core am2 socket chip on an Acer laptop to this chip. The little processor that could. Trending Price New. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to be-23500 more of their gaming performance potential.


The old “true performance initiative” numbers attached to current Athlons and Semprons was getting to be more than a little threadbare in this age of multicore processors and new microarchitectures, so AMD finally decided to scrap it.

It offers average performance. All is well, or so it would seem.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Read on to see how we used the BE as a low-power processor and then abused dul as a high-power one, to the delight of all involved.

This change lines things up with future product names like “Phenom X4,” as well.

AMD’s Athlon X2 BE-2350 processor

It offers 2 Physical Cores 2 Logicalclocked at 2. AMD Ryzen 7 X 3. Its performance is afhlontm the average and so most demanding games will not run optimally.

Intel Core i5 i Hexa-core 6 Core 3. CPU Cache and Memory. In fact, at 35 watts, this CPU was essentially the exact same thing as a Turion 64 X2 processor, but ensconced in a desktop-style package and ready to drop into practically any Socket AM2 motherboard. Much improved speedsa little more battery consumption, but very well worth the trade off for me. Works Great I put this in an emachines EL that had a single core 1.


Both CPUs have one thread per physical core. The BE is clocked at 1.

But in the background, just above the sound of the air conditioning system forcing air through the vents, I can hear it: What’s with that funky name?

For games, the number of threads is largely irrelevant, as long as you have at least 2 cores preferably 4and hyperthreading can sometimes even hit performance. Now that the whole world has seen the wisdom of adding bit extensions in hardware and continuing to use only bit software, AMD figures its work here is done. This processor is awesome.

What’s not to like? Steam names the best-selling games of Notable by its omission processsor the new naming scheme is the “64” after “Athlon.

Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! For now, the company intends to retain the “plus” model numbers on its existing products rather than renaming its whole lineup.
