AMD Athlon II X4 620 benched - 4 Multimedia

Review: Cheap as chips


Our benchmarks are quite self-explanatory. Beside the usual benchmarks we included the Far Cry 2 Bench, which should show only the benefit of a faster CPU. Intel i5/i7 CPUs are benched without HT and without Turbo to get a clock by clock comparison. Now we will see if AMD is correct with its assessment that the missing L3 cache won't have a noticeable impact. Please note we did not rebench all other CPUs because that would have cost too much time, but we think the impact of the new BIOS is negligible. The Phenom II 905e is clocked only 100MHz slower, but the L3 cache does not help much in Cinebench where both CPUs come out neck and neck. Only the x264 tests shows minimal advantages.
