AMD Athlon II X3 445 Processor bumps up the clock speeds

The benefits of processor binning are in full effect allowing a good chunk of AMD’s chips to leak into the X3 and X2 classification with mighty impressive clock speeds and the chance of so much more.

The AMD Athlon II X3 445 Processor sports a 3.1GHz clock speed and the random possibility of that lucky unlock to open up a hidden fourth core. Benchmark Reviews does its usual thorough testing:

So, the meat and potatoes of the Athlon-II X3-445 hasn’t changed from its predecessors, the X3-435 and the X3-440. The only real difference is that it ships out at 3.1GHz, 100MHz faster than the X3-440 at 3.0GHz. Each of the three cores on the Athlon-II X3-445 comes with 64KB of L1 instruction and 64KB of L1 cache as well as 512KB of L2 cache. That makes for a grand total of 384KB of L1 cache and 1.5MB of L2 cache.

No joy for their crew but they did manage a fine overclock.
