Check out these quotes from AMD Athlon II X4 640 reviews & previews
"When you put the AMD Athlon II X4 640 and Phenom II X4 945 side by side, both running at 3.0 GHz, it's clear there is a slight performance advantage to the Phenom II line with the 6MB of L3 cache (which is one reason the 945 costs more). Even with the existing overlap between the two lines, one still has to realize that the 640 is the top of the Athlon II line, while the 925/940/945 processors are at the bottom of the Phenom II line."
"At about $120, the Athlon II X4 640 is a potent processor for the money. Match this processor up with a decent, dual-channel 4GB DDR3-1333 memory kit and a nice AMD 800-series chipse based motherboard, and you'll have yourself the foundation of a relatively powerful system, with cutting edge features (i.e. SATA 6G), for around $340. That's good news for anyone looking to build a full-featured, quad-core powered PC, on a limited budget. It may not be the fastest CPU on the market, but the Athlon II X4 640 is well worth its paltry asking price."
"The AMD Athlon II X4 640 may not be the world's fastest processor, though it isn't priced like it, either! The low price of $122.00 is aimed at the main stream crowd that likes to see a great price to performance ratio. AMD hit the nail on the head with the Athlon II X4 640 as the price to performance is terrific!"
"Once again, AMD raises the performance bar by raising the stock frequencies to a new level. The price is staying the same though -- leading towards yet better bang for buck. Quad cores don't have to cost an arm and a leg anymore. "
"Now, if you already have the last generation Athlon II X4 635, then I suggest you keep it. It's not worth paying extra for a little performance increase. Now if you are looking for a solid, low cost, quad core for your HTPC or workstation, then you cannot go wrong with the Athlon II X4 640 processor. At that price, you could build a complete system for what one of the more "high end" CPUs go for. However, if you want an easy to achieve, stable overclock as well as excellent performance for the price, then the Athlon II X4 640 at a low $122, is the CPU for you."
