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.
