Athlon II X2 240 Game Requirement Analysis

The Athlon II series is based on the AMD K10 architecture and derived from the Phenom II series. However, unlike its Phenom siblings, it does not contain any L3 Cache. There are two Athlon II dies: the dual-core Regor die with 1 MB L2 Cache per core and the four-core Propus with 512 KB per core. Regor is a native dual-core design with lower TDP and additional L2 to offset the removal of L3 cache. The three core Rana is derived from the Propus quad-core design, with one core disabled.

There are plenty of overclocking tutorials on internet, firstly read/learn something about it, its not that simple and if you dont know what you do you can damage your hardware

@NFSwhiplash -> Different sockets and cache memory? Athlon II X2 should be significantly better.

Hmm, we are going to need to restructure the Hardware page and tech display layout a little bit.

@Devilek, if we add L2 cache to the performance specification section above, is there anything else you can think of that would be useful that we should add?

There is a mistake - Regor has no L3 chache ;-) Only Phenoms have L3 cache ;-)
