Pros

Excellent value at the sub-$200 price point - on par with similar and higher-priced models from Intel with more features/versatility

1 agrees

Effortlessly handles multi-monitor configurations - suitable for users working in graphic design/image editing, audio/video production and more

1 agrees

3.2Ghz processing capabilities are ideal for gaming and video rendering applications alike - excellent option for entertainment-geared PC setups

1 agrees

"Black Edition" capabilities are ideal for users who frequently over-clock their CPU - unit can be pushed to nearly 1.5x its advertised processing capabilities

1 agrees

Unit is very easy to install - included instructions are clear and concise, with minimal software components enabling "plug-and-play" functionality

Cons

Tends to run very hot - users planning extensive computing exercises will be required to seek out a high-functioning external CPU cooler

1 agrees

Doesn't over-clock as well as the Athlon 5000+ Black Edition - lower initial speed (2.7Ghz) enables more over-clocking power

Based on the Windsor core, the AMD Athlon X2 6400+ is AMD's fastest dual core processor. While it is outpaced by Intel's latest 8000 series, this AMD chip still offers a good price:performance ratio for those who require a high performance chip on a budget. Sadly, based on a 90nm process and rated at 3.2GHz means this chip has a thermal output comparable to that of AMD's hottest and fastest quad core offerings. Like all of AMD's "black edition" products, the 6400+ gives enthusiasts the ability to better overclock through its unlocked CPU multiplier.
