- Black Edition Processor with Unlocked MultiplierWith the power of two processor cores on a single chip, the AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition delivers smoother and faster computing performance, even when running complex software application with each core owning L2 cache and sharing 6MB L3 cache. Its multiplier is fully unlocked for easy overclocking.
- AMD64 with Direct Connect ArchitectureAMD64 technology allows the AMD Phenom II X2 560 BE to run 32-bit applications at full speed while enabling a new generation of powerful 64-bit software applications. Moreover, all AMD Phenom II processors are built on AMD’s revolutionary Direct Connect Architecture, where processors are directly connected to one another. An I/O and memory subsystem is also directly connected to each processor, helping improve overall system performance and efficiency.
- Integrated Memory ControllerThe AMD Phenom II X2 560 BE features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that directly connects the processor to memory for optimum performance, low latency, and high throughput.
- HyperTransport 3.0 TechnologyHyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. With HT 3.0 technology the AMD Phenom II X2 560 BE dual-core processor enjoys 4000MHz system bus speeds.
- AMD Power Management TechnologiesCPU power management technologies including AMD PowerNow! 3.0 (Cool’n’Quiet), CoolCore, and Dual Dynamic Power Management result in proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers, including reduced power usage, lower energy costs, and greener PC operation.
- Enhanced Virus ProtectionAll AMD processors equipped with AMD64 technology are Enhanced Virus Protection-enabled. Enhanced virus protection acts as a preventative measure causing viruses to be localized, short-lived, and non-contagious, eventually being flushed from system memory.
