AMD Athlon X2 5200+ 

Released August, 2010
  • 2.7 GHz
  • Dual core
4.7 Out of 10

Really though, AMD's most effective shelter from the Core 2 fallout looks to be the low end, at which a complete non-gaming or media centre system can be built for around £200.

Sure it's a few frames faster in the games and takes a minute less in the multi-tasking test, but not £30-40 worth of boost.

Reviews Word on the street for the AMD Athlon X2 5200+


7.0
Unlike the 4600 and 3800 below them, the 5200 and upwards haven't chucked a meg and a half of cache over the edge in a desperate attempt to lose cost-weight.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Overclocking

It does have a lead over the similarly-priced Intel E6420 out of the box, so there's a certain argument for it if the thought of overclocking still sends icy fingers down your spine.
