Athlon II X4 645 Test Setup

Testing

To test the AMD chips we used the Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard which is based on the AMD 890FX chipset. This is a more expensive motherboard than the Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H that we used for the Intel Pentium G6950, but both boards are excellent overclockers and allowed us to get the maximum performance from the CPUs on test.

Software

Below is a list of the applications we've used for our testing - most of them are available free for public consumption, although some are popular professional software applications.
We've used Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, as this is the most flexible and reliable 64-bit OS for testing the applications above.
