AMD Phenom X3 8450
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Dec 2, 2010

The only processor line to utilize 3 cores, the Phenom X3 8450 attempts to strike a balance between number of usable cores and price. In reality a true Phenom X4, the 8450 contains a malfunctioning core which was disabled after manufacture. Features Socket type: AM2+ HT Speed: 3600MHz Core speed: 2.1GHz L2 Cache: 512KB x 3 L3 Cache (shared): 2MB Fab process: 65nm TDP:95W ... PROS: (1) good value - lots of performance for the price (2) runs stable and relatively cool with the stock heatsink/fan (3) good overclocking capabilities - allows for extra performance with minimal tweaking (4) hardware virtualization works under Linux ... CONS: (1) default clock speed is somewhat underpowered for gaming - needs to be overclocked for optimal performance (2) doesnt come with the standard AMD sticker (3) aging part - might be hard to find

Phenom X3 2.1 GHz
5 Star Review   By jbh420 on Mwave.com - Jul 27, 2008   

Strengths: 3 Cores, Cheaper than some Intel Dual Cores.

Weakness: Not Much Cheaper than the Phenom X4

For people who can't quite handle the quad core. Great CPU with 3 Cores. Can handle just about anything. Overclocked at 2.4 GHz Per Core. No Problems, Great Buy. Would recommend to Gamers and Movie fanatics. Not for the light computer users due to wasting 1 or more core.
