Athlon II X2 250 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.

My friend has this, along with a GT 520 and 4GB RAM, which makes us have an almost identical PC! Until I upgrade >:D

We've cried together, laughed together, pwned together.
Great CPU considering the price. Definitely one for those on a budget.

I think the core 2 duo beats it by very little, it has more cache memory, but the clocks on the athlon run faster
