The second Athlon II X3 processor, released in October 2009, is model 435 (part number ADX435WFK32GI). This processor is 200 MHz faster than model 425, which translates into 5% - 7% better performance. Like other Athlon II processors, model 435 doesn't have level 3 cache, and performs not as good as more expensive and powerful Phenom II X3 family. In pure numeric benchmarks the 435 beats Phenom II X3 720 - after all, the Athlon II X3 435 has 100 MHz higher core frequency. In memory-intensive applications the 425 is up to 15% slower than the 720.
