Pros

includes all virtualization features not found on lower-end Intel chips

1 agrees

45W TDP - very cool for a desktop CPU, easily cooled quietly

1 agrees

built on the latest 45nm fabrication process - allows for cheaper chips at higher clock speeds (performance) while remaining cooler, more energy efficient

1 agrees

affordable price for a cool quad-core - ideal for an HTPC or home server

1 agrees

full quad-core CPU

The AMD Athlon II X4 600e is a 64-bit quad core processor based on the Phenom II architecture. As part of the “Propus” family, this 45 nanometer chip is designed for the AM2+/AM3 motherboard socket and has a TDP energy rating of 45 watts. Because of the relatively low energy usage, AMD is marketing this product as part of their energy efficient lineup. The default clock frequency is set at 2.2 GHz, while the processor multiplier is locked in at 11x. In terms of L2 cache, users will find 4x 512 KB which combines into a total of 2 MB. The bus speed is set at 667 MHz for memory. The AMD Athlon II X4 600e was released on October 20th, 2009.
