This low power (45W rated) processor does anything available and streaming from the internet. Any HD videos, most are 720p online, all stream across my fiber optic broadband and run great using this processor & the motherboard has onboard video chip too, using shared RAM. I've had no problems with photo editing using GIMP in Linux.
It runs so cool, most times the cpu fan is the only one running and that's usually on slow speed. Right now in 70F degrees house, the CPU is at 44 Centigrade, or 111 F degrees. My PSU has a fan control inbuilt and I almost never hear it kick on. I pulled the case fan from the tower because it was totally unneeded with this Sempron processor and using it now in another tower with AMD Phenom X4 in it.
If you are building a Linux box or hooking a computer to a TV setup for streaming video from online, don't spend extra on hot processors with lots of cores when this is more than sufficient and won't burn up your electric bill either.
see it in action.
Unlocked 2nd core to Athlon II x2 445 C3 (Athlon II x2 4450e C3).
Overclocked to 3.36Ghz, 240MHz (HT) using MoBo BIOS presets only.
Excellent CPU and truly valuable.
Very inexpensive compared to other current AM3 CPUs.
Research the benchmarks and see how well it performs as a single core and then as a dual core. It is a true value vs. performance CPU.
I purchased this CPU and Mobo at Amazon and with Super Saver Shipping, it arrived in 6 days.
I wanted a multi-GPU mining rig. This is the right choice for the CPU on my rig.
Now for how NOT to use it:
1) If you want a high power CPU this isn't it.
2) If you want a gaming rig then don't bother.
3) If you want a mining rig where the ASIC does the job then get a Raspberry Pi.
You got to use the right tool for any job. I wanted to build a GPU mining rig and the most basic CPU is just fine. I am not even going to bother with unlocking it. All the CPU needs to do is drive the GPUs. So a ~30 $ CPU is more than sufficient while the real workhorses the GPUs each cost over 200 $.
