AMD Athlon II X4 650 advantages
- The processor has 3DNow! instructions enabled. This technology can boost performance of certain old games and software. The 3DNow! set is obsolete now, and not utilized by modern programs.
- The Athlon II X4 650 CPU is 24% more energy efficient.
AMD FX-4130 advantages
- The processor offers higher operating frequency than the AMD 650 microprocessor.
- The CPU includes SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
- The processor incorporates Advanced Encryption Standard extension to the instruction set. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are beneficial if you run applications, that protect your disk or network data.
- The CPU features AVX and XOP instructions. While these extensions are not widely used in programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
- FMA4 instruction set extension is enabled on this microprocessor. The FMA4 technology is only available on AMD CPUs, therefore it probably will not get broad support from software vendors.
- The processor has unlocked clock multiplier. The CPU can be effortlessly overclocked on most motherboards to achieve greater performance. Be warned that overclocking voids warranty of the microprocessor.
650 vs FX-4130 specifications comparison
The charts below compare the most important AMD FX-4130 and AMD 650 characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Operating frequency" graph uses dark color for base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
