Review: Slight speed pump for the Athlons

Last month, AMD released several CPUs with a slight speed-bump which also included the Athlon II X4 645. With current 3.1GHz it's the top of the L3 cacheless Propus line. All the other specifications stayed the same, with 4x256 L2 Cache, 64kB Cache for data and instructions per core and a TDP of 95W. While the first Propus Athlon II X4 620 was fired with 1.40V, thankfully AMD reduced the VCore to 1.35V at load and 1.00V in Cool'n'Quiet mode. Let's see how the CPU does.
