Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition is a middle-class processor based on the 45nm, K10 architecture.
It offers 2 Physical Cores (2 Logical), clocked at 3.2GHz and 6MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Virtualization is activated and the clock multiplier is unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked easily.
The processor DOES NOT integrate any graphics. and has a rated board TDP of 80W.
It offers average performance. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications.
@ majinos -> let's put it this way. on this site, (recommended) system requirements are put the same as the publisher of a game said. of course, most of the time it's a marketing trick so that people would buy new component(s) just to play a game. so, by constant feedback from users with various rigs, recommended system requirements are changing until we reach the most appropriate one for a specific game. bad company 2 is playable on max settings with a dual-core CPU but one would need to have a solid GPU to "do all the work" instead :)
This is messed up, my rig has all gold checks for all games, except mm proccessor (this 1) and IDK Y it says i cant run a game cause of it, IE it told me i couldnt run BFBC2 and i ran it maxed out -_-
I am AMD faithful, i unlock the four core but even with two cores the performance is good compared to the price ratio from Intel.
I unlock the four core and not at all difficult. I am very happy because it works great
I kinda like the competition thrown out by AMD to Intel. This processor is released, not only to match-up Core 2 Duos but also to compete against i3 processors. If someone is lucky enough, buying this may have himself a triple or quadcore processor (if he unlocked the disabled cores).
processor is much better, as presented here
