Excerpt: Since its introduction in January 2009 AMD have offered a large range of various Phenom II series processors. These have ranged from the original AM2+ DDR2 only quad core Phenom II X4 920 and 940 processors right up to the current AMD flagship processor t...
Bad: No real improvement over the 550BE, Yet more expensive
Bottomline: AMD has been prolific lately and the next in its line to fall under our spotlight is the dual-core Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition.As a result of its labours, AMD certainly has a lot of flavours of processor on the market these days, but as a gamer on a...
Good: Price/Performance ratio, Possibility to unlock cores, High CPU frequency
Bad: Cores may or may not unlockFind more epxert reviews at testseek.com
Bottomline: AMD Phenom II X2 560 is just a minor upgrade over the 555BE which has been on market for a while now. 100MHz frequency boost gives performance benefit in test programs, and while the price is around the 100USD which 555BE has been, it is clearly a wis...

Good: Black Edition CPU, AM3/AM2 compatibility, Great Overclocker, DDR3 support, Efficient 45nm process, Virtualization Support, L3 Cache,

Good: Speedy performance for the price in most mainstream software; compatible with older AM2+ motherboards; unlocked for easy overclocking
Bad: Doesn’t match Intel’s similarly priced CPU in multithreaded software; quad-core CPUs available for a similar price
Bottomline: If you don’t run high-end content-creation apps and are looking for a speedy CPU for everyday computing, the Phenom II X2 560 is a good choice. Just don’t tax it with more than two tasks at once. ...
Bottomline: Es fällt nicht leicht, den Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition sinnvoll einzuordnen. AMD erwartet einen Verkaufstpeis von etwa 105 US-Dollar, das sind umgerechnet ca. 80 Euro. Auch wenn man bei PC-Hardware nie den exakten Umrechnungskurs anlegen kann: Sovie...
Bottomline: Stellen wir uns nun die Frage was wir heute hier gesehen und gelesen haben. Im Grunde handelte es sich doch um eine recht potente Dual Core CPU, welche zusätzlich über die Features der größeren Modelle verfügt. So kann sie mit dem vollständige...
