Default AMD Athlon II X4 635 & Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition

AMD last month launched five processor models, three Athlon II's and two Phenom II's, and we're taking a look at one of each. The Phenom II is a 3.20GHz dual-core, and a Black Edition dual-core at that, while the Athlon II is the ultra-affordable 2.9GHz quad-core. Let's see how both stack up to the rest of AMD's line-up, and the competition.

You can read the rest of our review here.

Default 555 unlocked

Maybe when you throw in the Core i5 numbers later on you could also include the numbers you get when you unlock the Phenom II X2 555 BE to a quad core. Just a suggestion

That's a great idea. Next week is going to be a busy content-wise, but I'll see what I can do. I'm also curious of the results of that.
