and if you don't compare an ssd to super slow notebook hdds then you need to compare an ssd to an 15000 upm sas hdd because the speed matters
then ssd win much higher ...
Guys, thank you for input! Especially MU_Engineer!
The true reason behind Athlon II x4 inefficient Vcore setting is simple - they are masking defect (turned off or defect cache, defect cores etc) Phenoms II as Athlons II. Phenom II is unable to work under 1.4Vcore and same as X3 vs X4, it seems AMD is unabIt runs and consumes electricity, but its not internally addressed.le to remove the power off completely from the defect chip or cache. On the contrast true Athlon II Propus cores only need as much as 1.15 Vcc to function stable at 2.8Ghz. Which was one of the reason I switched not only the graphics card to AMD, but the system itself - the chip may cost cheap but it should definitely not waste megawatts via deactivated cache or similar. As an "Otto-normal Burger" I don't own a nuclear powerplant in the backyard, nor am I interested in investing into pretty inefficient high-cost solar panels.
Core on other side, although as it seems pretty cut down at factory, does not utilize the cut-down parts nor needs to supply them with power.
I hope AMD will improve in next generation, ty for input!
