The onward march of technology means sooner or later that fancy new chips will eventually come down in price for just about anyone to enjoy. Sadly that just means more processing power to be wasted away on rousing web-based games.

The AMD Athlon II X4 635 comes ready to tackle your computing tasks with four cores operating at 2.9GHz all at a reasonably low MSRP. TechwareLabs has the review:

The rest of you who are looking to squeeze the most out of a processor and are choosing between the 630 and the 635 will likely choose the 635 since we were able to over-clock the processor an additional 600MHz on air alone. Though overall we were looking for the Athlon II which was to follow the 630 to leave the 630 way behind, but the 635 at stock didn’t leave us speechless, but the 635 did make us smile while over-clocking.

In other words if you’re a tweaker on a budget this might just be your next chip.
