Difference between AMD X2 64 and AMD E-350
Mar 15, 2012, 5:15 PM
I want to play Guild Wars 2 and the minimum processor spec says:
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 or better
I have an E-350 processor (1.6 Ghz) in my laptop and I've read that it is dual core. The highest Ghz I've seen for the 64 X2 is 1.9 and the model laptop I'm thinking about buying is 1.2.
My question is what exactly is the difference between these two chips if my processor is like having two 1.6 Ghz processors as opposed to the a 64 X2 that's like having two 1.2 Ghz processors?

Quite a few of the X2's ran above 1.9Ghz.
Athlon X2 4800+ (2.4Ghz) / Athlon X2 5600+ (2.9Ghz) Athlon X2 6400+ (3.2Ghz)

NVIDIA GeForce 7800, ATI Radeon x1800, Intel HD 3000 or better (256MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better). According to "Can You Run it", my laptop passes that spec.

The CPU is a bit light - by about 25% - it would seem.
That's more than a little concern in a RPG type game.
Hopefully, you'll have a chance to read what success other E-350 owners are having before you have to jump in and buy a copy.
