Pros: Cheap, unlockable 2nd core
Cons: Low cache
In its stock clocked single core iteration, the CPU is mediocre at best. Just barely able to keep up with modern games and systems. However, with the proper motherboard this lowly little chip can be transformed into an Athlon II x2 Dual Core. It is a vast improvement. Its low power consumption (45-85w with both cores) make it a nice upgrade to an older system running an AM2+ socket, or a budget home PC build with low-cost parts.
Overall, it performs well enough but wont be winning any races.
