Cores2More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.5GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameRaven RidgeThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date21 Dec 2018 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP35WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache192KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache1024KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache4MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography14nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM4The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Athlon 240GE 2-Core 3.5GHz compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Athlon 240GE 2-Core 3.5GHz has exceptional performance. Its 2 cores clocked at 3.5 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds but allow few processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is over 1 year old, meaning while it is probably beginning to look old compared to newer processors, manufacturer support should still be readily available.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 14 nanometers, the Athlon 240GE 2-Core 3.5GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 35W it also requires very little power to run.
