Solved Athlon IIx4 605e VS. Phenom IIx4 910e Tags: Cache CPUs Phenom Last response: April 23, 2014 7:26 PM in CPUs Share magneezo April 23, 2014 6:23:04 AM For a difference of about $50 in price (Athlon $80, Phenom $130), the Athlon IIx4 seems like a good upgrade, but it lacks L3 Cache. The Phenom IIx4 however has 6mb L3 cache. What is the advantage of the Phenom IIx4 over the Athlon IIx4?
