Introduction


Product on Review: AMD Athlon II X2 255 Processor
Manufacturer and Sponsor: AMD (Advanced Micro Devices)
Street Price: Approx £56 At the time of review

Another day another chip from AMD. A massive semiconductor company with a considerable market share - they're one half of the 'Big Two' and provide graphics processors as well as desktop processors.



Here’s a little about the company:

Over the course of AMD's four decades in business, silicon and software have become the steel and plastic of the worldwide digital economy. Technology companies have become global pacesetters, making technical advances at a prodigious rate — always driving the industry to deliver more and more, faster and faster.

However, “technology for technology's sake” is not the way we do business at AMD. Our history is marked by a commitment to innovation that's truly useful for customers — putting the real needs of people ahead of technical one-upmanship. AMD founder Jerry Sanders has always maintained that “customers should come first, at every stage of a company's activities.”





This is my fourth AMD chip review and focuses on the budget end of the market with the Athlon II 255 dual core processor.

After the mighty 'Goliath' in the form of the 1055T I'm intrigued to see how this little 'David' fares.
