Review: Slower Phenom II X4 for the DDR3 platform

As you can see, the Phenom II is closing the gap against Intel's offer quite nicely. Unfortunately, AMD has not improved the SSE units as much as we hoped they will, and as such still falls behind Intel when it comes to encoding and multimedia. When gaming, you shouldn't notice any significant performance loss, but of course - the faster the graphics card, the better. Far Cry 2 shows better results at only 3.4GHz, compared to 3.8GHz on the Phenom II 940 because the memory runs at 1048MHz instead of 800MHz.
