At this time (October 2009) the ADX215OCK22GQ is the slowest microprocessor from Athlon II X2 family. Nevertheless, The Athlon II X2 215 has better performance in memory intensive applications, and MMX/SSEx-enabled applications than the fastest dual-core processor based on K8 microarchitecture - Athlon 64 X2 6400+. Integer and floating-point performance of the 215 is slightly slower than the fastest Athlon 64 X2 CPUs (6400+, 6000+). The closest match from Athlon X2 family for the 215 is 7750 or 7750 Black edition. Both processors, Athlon II X2 215 and Athlon X2 7750, run at 2.7 GHz frequency, and have the same size of level 1 and level 2 caches. Although the 215 has enhanced core and support for DDR3 memory, it lacks level 3 cache that is present in 7750 microprocessor.

AMD Sempron 180 mini-review
Sep 17, 2010
: At the end of July we published preliminary specifications of Sempron
180 microprocessors. Recently, we acquired one the these Semprons, ran
a series of benchmarks on it, and compared them with test results of
other budget AMD and Intel CPUs. This mini-review presents partial
benchmarking results and our thoughts of them, and it will be useful
for those who consider buying either pre-built system with this
Sempron CPU, or OEM version of this microprocessor.
Athlon II X2 benchmarks
May 03, 2010
: A few weeks ago we acquired a lot of Athlon II processors with C3 core revision. Although we posted pictures and individual benchmarks to Athlon II CPU pages, and added the results to our benchmark database more than a week ago, we decided to provide benchmarks in more readable format, i.e. as a review.
