AMD Athlon II X3 435 2.9 GHz Socket AM3 Triple-Core Processor Review

AMD Athlon II X3 435 2.9 GHz Socket AM3 Triple-Core Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Enter the AMD Athlon II X3 435 processor, the focus of this PCSTATS review. It's a 2.9GHz triple-core socket AM3 CPU built on the Propus die. So is it better to get a dual core CPU, a triple-core CPU or a quad-core CPU?

32-Bit CPU Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks: 3DMark Vantage, 3DMark06

Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Source: FutureMark

3DMark Vantage is a PC benchmark suite designed to test the DirectX10 performance of your graphics card. We've been making 3DMark for over 10 years, with each new edition using the latest 3D technology to determine real-world performance. A 3DMark score is an overall measure of your system's 3D gaming capabilities, based on comprehensive real-time 3D graphics and processor tests. By comparing your score with those submitted by millions of other gamers you can see how your gaming rig performs, making it easier to choose the most effective upgrades or finding other ways to optimize your system.

Higher results are better.
