Ergebnis: Priced around the same as the AMD Phenom II X4 905e and performing better in most tests I can only say that this processor is a juicy piece of hardware. It is true, that 640 will consume more power than the 905e, but if you’re only after performance in office and gaming use I can recommend this...
Exzerpt: AMD har været så venlige at låne os den største Athlon II X4 CPU som man kan få fingere i, nemlig 640 modellen, ligesom den lillebror 635’eren som stort set er identisk med denne, har 640’eren en lidt hurtigere clock hastighed.
Ergebnis: The Athlon-II X4-640 performed very well against the lower end Athlon-II X3 and X2 processors that we tested it against. When overclocked to 3.8GHz it even got close and overcame to the performance of the i7 920, mostly in single threaded or low-end environments.
Kontra: Not as high performance increase as seen from the X2-260 to the X3-445
Exzerpt: AMD evolve la propria gamma di cpu Athlon II X4, proponendo una versione a 3 GHz di clock con conseguente riallineamento di prezzo delle altre versioni. Le soluzioni quad core raggiungono così livelli di costo sempre più popolari, con valide prestazioni complessive
Ergebnis: A new model of a CPU series is usually a pretty big deal, but six is phenomenal. Not only is AMD increasing the clock speed on these new models, but they are also keeping the top price points the same.
AMD Athlon II X4 640/X2 260 Processors and the MSI 890GXM-G65 Motherboard Review

Exzerpt: Are we tired yet of AMD pushing out slightly faster Athlon IIs and lowering the prices on the entire line? I’m not. Readers of this shouldn’t be either! Last year AMD shook up the budget processor world with the release of their well received Athlon II series of processors.
