AMD Athlon II dual-core processor P340

October 25th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The AMD Athlon ii P340 processor has a clock frequency of 2.2 GHz. The AMD P340 is a dual core low cost processor with decent performance level.

The Athlon ii P340 has only 64 bit FPU ( Turion II processors for example, have 128 bit FPU) which slows down the mathematical operations requiring floating point instruction execution.

The Athlon ii P340 has integrated memory controller and this is of the reasons it competes very well with the Intel Core 2 processor which does not has the integrated memory controller. The integrated memory controller reduces memory latency and increases overall system performance.

The AMD Athlon ii P340 also has the HyperTransport Bus – a fast, scalable, bi directional differential bus with massive bandwidth  to communicate with the chipset. The Intel’s front side bus architecture simply pales in front of the HyperTransport Bus.

The AMD Athlon II P340 does support the hardware virtualization technology ( AMD-V ) which is helpful if the systems have multiple operating systems running in parallel.

It may be a good idea to compare Athlon ii P340 based notebooks at amazon. Here are some lowest priced notebooks available at amazon – all of them have Athlon ii P340.

Some other notebooks found to have been powered by the Athlon ii P340 processor include

Sony Vaio VPCEE32FX/BJ
– HP G62-340us
– Compaq Presario CQ62Z
– Acer AS5552-3036

    Terrific post but I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Kudos!

    Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
    set up my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However think
    about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Superb blog!
