Intel Core 2 Duo Threatened: AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition CPU Review

The launching of the new processors of Phenom II which are built using the last process 45nm became an important big step not only for AMD Company, but also for whole computing industry. The architectural improvements presented in Phenom II, their frequencies of increased the clock signal and the largest L3 hiding-place raised the execution of the solutions of AMD on a completely new level. Consequently, when we examined the first representatives of the X4 family of Phenom II of quadruple-core, we could even declare a new round of competition between AMD and Intel in some segments. However, there are not only many segments still, where they can compete with. Up to now, there was only fair competition only on the market of processors of quadruple-core of budget. The X4 processors of Phenom II of the 800 and 900 lines seem to be a rather acceptable alternative to the solutions juniors of quadruple of core 2 of Intel, which is an ahead significant step for AMD.
Naturally, new the 45nm core of processor of Phenom II will make it possible AMD to be held outside in some other market segments. We already discussed the plans of the company about the adoption of manufacturing technology 45nm in central processing units of treatment of the various segments of market prices which comprise the different number of the cores, the frequencies and the size of the L3 hiding-place. Up to now these plans were partially put in the life. With knowing, the family of Phenom II includes already not only models of quadruple-core. Without counting that Phenom II the series of X4 900 and 800, AMD is used to the users their dish of �signature� - processors of triple-core Phenom II X3 as aka. These central processing units of treatment make it possible to AMD to put the partially defective matrices of quadruple-core at the good use offering to the customers a very attractive transitory solution. It is, in fact, extremely acute now that the concept multifil of calculations places inside relatively slowly.
From the multifil point of view of calculations, these processors of triple-core can hardly be regarded as an alternative to the offers the ones of Intel. But judging by their prices, Phenom II X on May 3 is of interest to these users who aim at the traditional computing systems. In other words, it can seem reasonable perfect to compare the processors of the new generation of triple-core AMD against the Intel duel-core to dig duet 2, and the table below illustrates that well:
AMD did not feel comfortable placing their X3 processors of Phenom II like the competitors to supplement solutions of duel-core of Intel, but they considered it absolutely justified to compare they against the duet E8000 junior of core 2 of Intel or the higher solutions of the E7000 series. Taking into account this situation, we decided to carry out another session of test only devoted to the processors of Phenom II of triple-core. Thus, our article of today will discuss the execution and other devices of the consumer of the processors of triple-core AMD built with the process 45nm. In this moment they are represented by two solutions of casing AM3: Phenom II X3 720 and Phenom II X3 710.
