AMD Phenom X2

PCGH Review: AMD Phenom X2 GE-6600, GE-6500 and GE-6400

AMD's dual-core Phenoms have been listed in our German speaking price comparison for some time. Now it's time to simulate their capabilities.
According to rumors, the future dual-core Phenoms will have the same cache size as the triple or quad-core models. This makes it easy to forecast their performance. Furthermore AMD seems to deliver additional Athlon X2: In our German speaking price comparison the specifications of the Athlon X2 6500 BE match those of the Phenom X2 GE-6600.

We simulated the Phenoms X2 GE-6600 (2.3 GHz), GE-6500 (2.1 GHz) and GE-6400 (1.9 GHz) by deactivating two cores of a Phenom X4 via MS Config.

The GE-6600 is very fast compared to the Athlon 64 X2 6000+: The dual-core can almost compete with the 3.0 GHz processor. In Grid the GE-6600 is even faster.
