Notable by its omission in the new naming scheme is the “64” after “Athlon. This is a 45watt am2 chip and pretty hard to find in the retail world, so Ebay was my most logical option. I put this in an emachines EL that had a single core 1. Trending Price New. The Athlon 64 X2 and the Athlon X2 both have 2 cores, and so are quite likely to struggle with the latest games, or at least bottleneck high-end graphics cards when running them. Upgraded my single core am2 socket chip on an Acer laptop to this chip.

Why, you ask, should a computing device be audible in one’s living room? Pay no attention to the “64” on the cap! Show More Show Less. Now that the whole world has seen the wisdom of adding bit extensions procwssor hardware and continuing to use only bit software, AMD figures its work here is done.

Intel Core i5 i Hexa-core 6 Core 3.

Can I Run It. The series of letters and numbers after that moniker is not entirely random, either.

AMD Athlon X2 BE-2350 / 2.1 GHz processor Series

Athlon X2 is a middle-class processor based on the 65nm, K10 architecture. Intel Core iK Coffee Lake 3.


AMD Athlon X2 With a decent accompanying GPU, the Athlon 64 X2 procesor the Athlon X2 may still be able to run slightly older games fairly effectively. Its performance is below the average and so most demanding games will not run optimally.

Skip to main content. Multiple threads are useful for improving the performance of multi-threaded applications. Work or play with multiple programs without any stalling or waiting. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 – but L3 qthlon still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU – the smaller this is, the proccessor transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections.

PassMark – AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core BE – Price performance comparison

This processor is awesome. If not, your cold, calloused heart may be warmed by the news that our BE sample also overclocks like a mofo. We have a full slate of performance results for the BE, but we’re going to move through them quickly, since the BE is a low-end, low-power processor with few true competitors.

Read on to see how we used the BE as a low-power processor and then abused it as a high-power one, to the delight of all involved. I’m sure you’re aghast. 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.


This is a 45watt am2 chip and pretty hard to find in the retail world, so Ebay was my most logical option. The BE is clocked at 1. Is that a motor oil? You may also like. No Interruptions Day Shortbread. This will lower your yearly electricity bill significantly, as well as prevent you from having to invest in extra cooling mechanisms unless you overclock.

But in the background, just above the sound of the air conditioning system forcing air through the vents, I can hear it: Thus the simpler “Athlon X2” series is born. This setup may allow AMD to cozy up next to Pentiums and Core Duos with product numbers that suggest similar or better performance. So all of this sounds pretty good so far, but you’re probably wondering:
