AMD althlon ii x4 vs amd phemon x2 which is better
which is better
More aboutalthlon phemon better
Generally the Athlon X4 as it has double the cores but lacks L3 cache and generally has lower clock speeds. For some uses that cannot take advantage of the extra 2 cores the Phenom is better and has the chance to unlock 2 more cores.
Depend what for, do you do anything that will utilize 4 cores if not the Phenom will do well.
Generally I'd take the 4 core cpu or take a gamble on unlocking the PII.
