AMD has been pushing out alot of different Athlon 2 versions to the market so today we are giving our attention to their tri channel 435 CPU on our test bench. We decided to run this a couple of AMD cpu’s and also vs a Intel processor to give you an idea how this unit performs. We will of course push our luck when it comes to overclocking so lets take a closer look.

Testing was done with the following software, Sisoft Sandra 2009 SP4, SuperPi, Winrar, Pcmark Vantage and Cinebench.
Sisoft Sandra 2009, Cpu Arithmetic:
The higher numbers the better is what counts in the Cpu Arithmetic benchmark. We can clearly see here that the 620 performs best while the 435 actually is not to far behind.
