Four Powerful Processing Cores

With the Athlon II X2 series, AMD engineers have combined two cores into a single processor, giving you enough processing muscle for all the latest software. Each core is also equipped with dedicated L1 and L2 cache that streamlines memory access and helps reduce latency.

For users, this means that you'll be able to run all the latest software without the slowdown you'd experience with an inferior processor. Your computer will be able to handle multiple programs, allowing you to multitask more efficiently. And you'll be able to enjoy next-gen media and games without any frame-rate hiccups.

Cutting-Edge Technologies for Faster Processing

The Athlon II X2 also makes use of several other performance-boosting technologies, including:

  • HyperTransport Bandwidth: Speeds up communication between the processor and memory, supporting transfer speeds of up to 4.4 GT/s.
  • Integrated Memory Controller: Actively scales bandwidth uses to match your computing needs, dramatically reducing slowdown.
  • 128-bit Floating-Point Unit (FPU): Allows processor to execute floating-point calculations with extreme speed.
Gaming without Slowdown

PC gaming continues to improve at a breakneck rate, with graphics, physics, and AI growing more realistic each year. But you'll need more than just a good graphics card to keep up with the latest games. For certain games that are heavily threaded, a slow CPU can quickly become a bottleneck for performance and can ruin your gaming experience.

Fortunately, the Athlon II series has been specifically designed to handle CPU-intensive games. With its multiple cores, the processor can manage thousands of high-speed gaming calculations at once. The result is a smooth, immersive gaming experience, free of any stuttering or latency.

The Ultimate in Energy Efficiency and Cooling

AMD products are known for their stellar energy efficiency and the Athlon II X2 245 is no exception. The processor features AMD's proprietary PowerNow and CoolCare technology, which allow the processor to smartly regulate its own energy consumption. Having an energy-efficient computer doesn't just help keep costs down; it also generates less heat and helps your computer to run more quietly. It will even prolong your processor's life cycle, so you can enjoy it for years without having to worry about degradation.

The AMD Athlon II X2 245 Dual-Core Desktop Processor is backed by a three-year warranty.

Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H Micro ATX MotherboardThe AMD Athlon II X2 245 is snappy processor good enough for your usual daily task, cost and performance benefits are realized when paired of with a good mobo with AMD chipset, I used the GIGABYTE MA785GMT-UD2H which is a very nice solid m-ATX board with 2GB of memory. With extra cash you can purchase a baord that has the dedicated sideport memory to give you that extra boost in 2D and 3D apps, however of course its not a killer you may want to purchase a dedicated graphics card to get better performance. The Cpu runs well, nice temperatures, easy installation I recommend it to anyone.

This is a great processor for anyone looking to build a moderately fast PC on a tight budget. at 2.9 GHz and only 2mb of L2 cache, it is not blazing fast but it will allow you to multitask with no problem while using everyday programs such as Microsoft Office. It is also powerful enough to run new games at moderately high settings but a high-end graphics card is obviously required for this. Bottomline, it is great choice for anyone looking for a reliable, fairly fast processor at a low cost.

Its more than enough CPU to handle my original intention for it. I'm using it as the brains behind my (fairly) new HTPC and it performs admirably. Currently I have XBMC running on top of Windows 7 x64. Its able to handle play back of 1080p video, including Blueray, and 5.1 audio without any hiccups, stutters, and it stays at a very comfortable 40c (+/- 1 or 2 degrees) even after hours of use. I coupled it with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM, 4GB of DDR2800, and an 80GB 7200RPM drive. I stream all of the media over the ethernet port as well.

All in all the processor exceeded my expectations and is an excellent bargain.
