Analysis and Conclusion
AMD‘s mantra has always been great performance at a great price, and the X4 645 certainly delivers. It delivers performance numbers mostly on par with the Intel i5 750, a CPU that retails for $200. If you’re looking to build a powerhouse gaming PC on the cheap, this CPU from AMD is an extremely solid choice.
Ultimately the Athlon X4 645 is estimated to have a retail price of approximately $122 which places is well below the i5 750 with which is directly competes in speed and performance. With pricing like that Intel will have to drop pricing on i5’s and i7’s or watch as the market votes with their wallets. These processor and pricing are an excellent move by AMD which continues to offer products people want at prices which are hard to deny.
