Opinion on AMD Phenom ii x2 521?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I noticed that I can't find my cpu anywhere online. It is an AMD Phenom II X2 521 @3.5ghz (stock speed). Does anyone else have it? It's hard to get advice on benchmarks and such frown.gif

It's basically a high-clocked Athlon II x2 (no L3 cache).  It's OEM only so not common.

AMD originally planned to release it at the same specs as the Athlon II X2 275, but apparently changed their minds and decided that its performance at 3.5 justified calling it a Phenom II, even if it lacked L3.
