Default AMD Athlon X2 7850 vs. Intel Pentium E5300: Choosing the Best $70 CPU

AMD celebrates its 40 year anniversary next month, and the Athlon brand turns ten shortly thereafter. What better way to celebrate than by releasing a rebadged 65nm Phenom processor with two cores disabled at $69? Er, or, I guess they couldíve sent a cake.

Itís called the Athlon X2 7850 and it actually has very little in common with the old Athlon 64 X2s. As I mentioned, these are rebadged 65nm Phenom processors with two cores disabled.

Interesting, $70 Dualcore with the remote possibility of 3GHz Quadcore through the same unlock as Tricore chips. NordicHardware reported one site did just that.
