AMD Phenom X3 8450: specs and benchmarks
AMD started AMD Phenom X3 8450 sales on April 2008. This is Toliman architecture desktop processor primarily aimed at office systems. It has 3 cores and 3 threads, and is based on 65 nm manufacturing technology, with a maximum frequency of 2100 MHz and a locked multiplier.
Compatibility-wise, this is AMD Socket AM2+ processor with a TDP of 95 Watt.
It provides poor benchmark performance at 1.31 percent of a leader's which is AMD EPYC 7763.
Of Phenom X3 8450 processor market type (desktop or notebook), architecture, sales start time and pricing.
Basic microprocessor parameters such as number of cores, number of threads, base frequency and turbo boost clock, lithography, cache size and multiplier lock state. These parameters can generally indicate CPU performance, but to be more precise you have to review its test results.
Information on Phenom X3 8450 compatibility with other computer components and devices: motherboard (look for socket type), power supply unit (look for power consumption) etc. Useful when planning a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. Note that power consumption of some processors can well exceed their nominal TDP, even without overclocking. Some can even double their declared thermals given that the motherboard allows to tune the CPU power parameters.
Supported virtual machine optimization technologies. Some are specific to Intel only, some to AMD.
Single-core and multi-core benchmark results of Phenom X3 8450. Overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range, higher is better.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
Passmark CPU Mark is a widespread benchmark, consisting of 8 different types of workload, including integer and floating point math, extended instructions, compression, encryption and physics calculation. There is also one separate single-threaded scenario measuring single-core performance.
Let's see how good Phenom X3 8450 is for a gaming PC, compared with system requirements of some popular titles. Remember that sometimes official hardware requirements may reflect real performance inaccurately.
This processor matches 74% minimum and 60% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
