The Athlon II X4 635 would shine in heavily multi-threaded applications but the lack of that L3 cache makes it pretty slow compared to a dual core with a huge 6MB L3 cache. Despite this after checking out a few benchies it seems that the quad core is still a pretty good performer.

I can attest to Phenom II quads,
for the money, you get the performance of a Ferarri,

And can keep up with MOST Core I7s when Overclocked.

if u can find a way to slow down that Phenom II 955

your a god
