It is a good CPU. It has a very good overlocking potential - up to 2900 MHz. This result can be attain if you have a good motherboard with chipset as NForce4.
This processor are faster than all Intel CPU for the same price(Celeron D, P4 Prescott). It has an integrated DDR memory controller, what good syning at perfomance. It reduce RAM latency. But this memory controller is a single channel.
In my opinion it is a good fast cpu for this money.
I have use it from 2005.
