    65W TDP FTW!!

    The X3 705e looks good for the price.

    There is also two new AMD dual cores release today.

    So.... X3 720 BE > X3 705e or not?

    Yes the 720 BE will still be better. After all its 2.8ghz and has an unlocked multiplier. So unless you are really into your energy saving, you better off spending the extra £10 on the 720, buying a couple of energy saver bulbs for your room and planting a tree in the back garden

    Well on my next upgrade I'm going down the SFF route with a Silverstone Sugo, so I may be tempted for something which produces less heat, I already have a Saphire HD 4770, so maybe a X3 705e maybe the way forward in terms of less heat.

    X3 720 BE is better (and more expensive) than the 705e - higher clock speed (2.8GHz vs. 2.5GHz) and unlocked multiplier, although obviously it draws a lot more power. But that's not the real comparison...

    The tricky one is X3 710 vs X3 705e - 2.6GHz vs 2.5GHz; £95 vs £102; BUT 95W vs 65W. Very closely matched processors - for those you have to decide whether you want the slightly higgher stock clocks for less money, or the energy efficient version. Although, as I said, I'll be waiting for 785G motherboards, I think...
