AMD Phenom II X4 P940 vs AMD Phenom II X4 N930 vs AMD Phenom II X4 P920

AMD Phenom II X4 P940

► remove from comparison

The AMD Phenom II X4 P940 is a slow clocked quad-core CPU for laptops. Compared to the desktop Phenom II, the mobile Phenom II X4 offer no level 3 cache and are therefore compareable to the desktop Athlon X4 line. The slow clock speed allows the low powerconsumption (25 W TDP) but may lead to a bad performance in single threaded applications and games. The single thread performance should be between a 1.4 GHz and 1.7 GHz Core 2 Duo processor. If all four cores are used in benchmarks, the performance may reach the level of a Core i3 processor.

As the current Intel Core i3 CPUs, the P940 offers an integrated DDR3 memory controller (up to DDR3-1066). However it is still manufactured in 45nm (SOI process).

AMD Phenom II X4 N930

► remove from comparison

The AMD Phenom II X4 N930 Quad Core is a laptop CPU clocked at 2 GHz. Due to a missing Turbo and no level 3 cache, the performance of the N930 should be beyond the Core 2 Quad Q9000. Compared to desktop CPUs, the Phenom II laptop CPUs are similar to the desktop Athlon II processors because of the missing level 3 cache. Therefore, the N930 is similar to a low clocked Athlon II X4 CPU produced in 45nm SOI.

The Phenom II includes an integrated memory controller for DDR3 (max. 1333) main memory. It supports MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4A.

AMD Phenom II X4 P920

► remove from comparison

The AMD Phenom II X4 P920 is a slow clocked quad-core CPU for laptops. Compared to the desktop Phenom II, the mobile Phenom II X4 offer no level 3 cache and are therefore compareable to the desktop Athlon X4 line. The slow clock speed allows the low powerconsumption (25 W TDP) but may lead to a bad performance in single threaded applications and games. For example in the single threaded CB10 test, the P920 only was as fast as a 1.6 GHz Core 2 Duo Dual-Core. In SuperPi even a 1.3 GHz Core 2 Duo was faster. If all four cores are used, the CPU can be as fast as a 2.3-2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo (e.g. T4500). In CB11.5 even as fast as a Core i3-330M. The Core i7-720QM Quad-Core is also rated at 1.6 GHz, but due to Turbo Boost and a large level 3 cache, the 720QM is noticeable faster (and more power hungry).

As the current Intel Core i3 CPUs, the P920 offers an integrated DDR3 memory controller (up to DDR3-1066). However it is still manufactured in 45nm (SOI process).
