Will you take a performance hit? yes. Will it be noticeable? Unless you like taking benchmarks on your system all day long or used memory bandwidth sensitive programs (like cad) , i doubt you'll notice the performance hit. Overall, you'll be fine with a phenom ii x6 with ddr2 ram. | Report abuse reconviperone1 June 5, 2010 11:14:06 PM good to know, i dont do a lot of gaming anymore, but I'm currentling converting my movies to divx(for my dvd player), and mpeg4(for my phone/mp3 player) so i could use those extra cores, plus I miss amd chips and chipsets | Report abuse reconviperone1 June 5, 2010 11:14:19 PM Best answer selected by reconviperone1. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>6 core phenom with ddr2> Related ressources: ForumOverclocking phenom x 6 1055t with 800mhz ddr2 ram ForumOverclocking phenom x 6 1055t with 800 ddr2 ram ForumCore i5 2500k vs amd phenom ii x 6 vs core i7 2600k ForumPhenom X4 9950 (HD995ZXAJ4BGH) 2 6 GHz 125W rev B3 SocketAM2 Quad- Core ForumIntel Core i7 875k vs AMD Phenom II X 6 1090T Forum ForumAmd phenom 3.4 quad v.s 6 core ?
