AMD releases their Athlon II X4 620 and 630 quad core processors. That first one, the 620 will be priced at sub 100 USD prices, meaning you get to enjoy and reap the benefits of multi-core processing for 100 USD. These are the cheapest quad-core processors to date.
AMD switched over to the less expensive 'Propus' design for the Athlon II X4 620 and 630. Propus doesn't have any physical 6MB L3 cache at all. That does have an effect on performance yet as the results show, the processor performance however definitely remains good enough for pretty much any application. Standard desktop workload, Photoshop, even video editing thanks to the four cores is really do-able.
