AMD Athlon II X4 620 review
Its always good to see AMD constantly releasing new and cheaper parts - though I'd love to see them take the lead and innovate, rather than just compete. Well at least it'll force intel to reduce its prices!

I need speed where is my dream 16core 4processor capable motherboard
Gee wizzzz, what I would do with a laptop with 4 of these baby's on, 8gig ram OLED touch screen with ipod style touch pad and oled haptic touch keys..... oh yes and two hard drives, one removable and one solid state 250gig...
HDMI output usb2, wirelsss usb, wifi, wifimax, screen lid touch control..... 6 hour battery life with solar panel lid.
would I buy one of these? yes n heartbeat. but where is the rest of it.... now if only someone would build this.

I think this is a counter attack to Intel's cheaper CPU's. It will drive the Intel price down, reducing their margins and making AMD look relatively more competitive on the market if only because Intel will not have their margin.
This reminds me of single and dual core Celerons, outperforming the alternative P4's simply due to their clock speed. So I do think that the fast cores will have a place. The 620 and 630 should perform well in standard business systems, but they are far too power hungry for my liking, especially considering they don’t have L3 cache!
