AMD V Series V140 Single core processor Review

October 22nd, 2010

The nominal frequency of operation of the AMD V Series V140 processor is 2.3 GHz. The AMD V140 improves upon the frequency of the the V Series V120 processor by 100 MHz. The V140 has has an integrated Dual-channel DDR3 SDRAM Memory controller which helps in faster memory communication ( unlike the intel processors that has north bridge). The V Series V140 is a single core processor.

The AMD V series V140 connects to the chipset is using a 1.6 GHz HyperTransport Bus. The HyperTransport is a bidirectional differential bus with huge bandwidth.

The AMD V140 has contains 512 Kilo Bytes of Level 2 L2 cache. It however does not has any Level 3 L3 Cache. The integrated memory controller in the V Series V140 is partly made up by the integrated DDR3 memory controller.

The Thermal Dissipation power (TDP ) rating of 25 Watts means that the netbooks and notebooks designed with V140 will consume low power and will have extended battery life.

Not much detailed benchmark results are available. By way of the increase in the frequency we can estimate that the performance of the AMD V140 will improve upon the performance AMD V120 by 5%. It is speculated that its performance will be better than the similarly clocked single core Intel Celeron processors. The passmark score from cpubenchmark.net gives it a rating of 773.

Other features of the AMD V140 processor include special multimedia instruction sets 3DNow!, MMX technology, SSE3 SSE4A. The AMD V140 does support AMD Hardware Virtualization technology. The virtualization technology is helpful if you are having two operating systems ( Like Windows XP and Linus) working simultaneously.

Pros of AMD V140 Processor

- Inexpensive.
- Low power consumption, long battery life.
- Integrated Memory Controller.

Cons of AMD V140 Processor

_ Lacks Horsepower.
- No L3 Cache.

Here are some of the notebooks powered by AMD V Series V140 processor

Compaq Presario CQ62Z.
Acer AS5252-V476
TOSHIBA Satellite C655D-S5087

    So for the notebook above yeah its lacking horsepower but it seems worth it amds mobile isnt my favorite compared to there desktop models but the price cut is always worth it
