AMD Athlon 2 X3 435 - AMD Athlon 2 X3 435
Thu, December 03 2009 | 12:03PM | PermaLink Feedback?
We're going to take a look at the new AMD Athlon 2 X3 435 triple core CPU and see if we can't unlock it's potential, then we're going to try and unlock that disabled core. You should know that unlocking that disabled core is a crap shoot and not every Triple core CPU can handle it. We'd venture a guess that as many as 50% of the triple cores are capable of unlocking and functioning. That usually comes at a cost, most often you lose a little OCing capability. Typically an unlocked core CPU that overclocks to 3.GHz will OC as high as 3.5GHz so you lose 300 - 400 GHz OCing capability but gain a core. Other triple core CPU's won't stabilize with the core unlocked. If you have a little luck and a board capable of the trick you might extend the already great value of affordable AMD CPU's. Even if it doesn't unlock the Athlon 2 X3 435 running a mere $87 dollars at launch is still an exceptional value for budget minded enthusiasts.
