FINAL RESULT

COMMENT - "AMD Athlon II X2 240 performs well beating AMD Athlon64 X2 4800 with all of the Software we used for Benchmarking. AMD Athlon64 X2 4800 was the fastest Socket 939 Processor which was ever released and still holds up well even today. The Synthetic Benchmarks were easily won by AMD Athlon II X2 240 thanks to the 2.8Ghz. However the Games Benchmarks were much closer because they are usually as much Video Card limited as Processor Limited. Thankfully AMD Athlon II X2 240 and AMD Athlon64 X2 4800 are more than enough for the games we used for testing. We highly recommend AMD Athlon II X2 240 which is a great Processor which costs under $55 which makes it a fantastic buy!"
AMD ATHLON II X2 240 SCORES 10/10!
