Win an AMD Athlon II X2 255 CPU

Not really a killer, but when it’s free it’s definitely a good deal 😉 The guys at eTeknix are running a 4-week contest to win an Athlon II X2 255. The requirements are fairly easy to reach: have 10 posts on their forums, tweet a link to their contest, and follow their tweets. The winner will be randomly picked amongst all those who qualify…

If you want to try your luck, link follows: http://www.eteknix.com/news/competitions/win-an-amd-athlon-ii-x2-255-cpu-processor/

More details on the Athlon 2 X2 255:
– TDP: 65W
– Clocked at 3.1GHz (15.5 x 200MHz)
– 1 MiB L2 cache per core (2 MiB total cache)
– Has been overclocked to 4.8GHz with a Mach 1 phase cooler
I also dug up some benchmarks there, comparing it to fellow Athlons and Phenoms 2.
