What motherboard does the X4 740 come with?

Recently, many users have chosen the AMD X4740 processor to install the machine. The following also recommends a lot of related configurations for everyone. The biggest advantage of choosing this processor is the ratio of performance to price. Of course, there are many newcomers to DIY computer enthusiasts who don't know what AMD X4740 is like or what motherboard the processor should be equipped with. Next, this article briefly introduces what AMD X4740 is like and what motherboard it should be equipped with.

AMD Speed Dragon ii X4740 is a 32nm quad-core processor, using pile driver architecture, main frequency 3.7GHz, supporting dynamic overclocking acceleration to 4GHz, with 4MB secondary cache, thermal power design of 65W, due to the use of FM2 interface, it can only be used with the motherboard of FM2 interface. Suilong X4740 processor can be regarded as the successor of Suilong II X4641. The APU, performance of the shielded display core is not much different. The advantage lies in the native four-threaded, good multithreaded computing power, equipped with the latest FM2 interface, and later upgrades.


 we can see that the AMD Speed Dragon II X4740 processor performs very well in terms of main frequency, secondary cache and the number of cores. It uses the latest Trinity processor architecture, but it is still only the mainstream in terms of overall performance. The overall performance is inferior to the previous AMD Speed Dragon II X4 641hand 651 with FM1 interface, but it is still in the mainstream performance level. The following figure CPU ladder chart shows:


Many people may think that the performance of the new AMD processor is not as good as before, regardless of its high main frequency and good secondary cache performance, but the new architecture processor does not improve the CPU performance, and the processor castrates the core graphics card, so is it not recommended? The answer is no, and the processor is highly recommended in terms of price and upgrade potential.

In terms of price, the current price of this AMD Speed Dragon II X4740 processor is about 420 yuan, which is dozens of yuan cheaper than the AMD Speed Dragon II X4 641x651, so the price of this new processor has an advantage.

Upgrade, as AMD has revealed that processors with AM3 or FM1 interfaces will also be eliminated this year, for future upgrades, FM2 interface processors can be matched with FM2 interface motherboards, because they still have stronger potential in future upgrades, and their performance is not much different from that of other AMD quad cores, so it is still recommended.

What motherboard is equipped with X4 740?  

For CPU motherboard, we usually need to see what the CPU slot is. From the above information, we can know that the X4740 processor uses the latest Socket FM2 slot, so the motherboard with FM2 processor slot is needed. At present, there are low-end A55, middle-end A75 and high-end A85 motherboard.


But it should be noted that the A55 motherboard and the A75 motherboard have both FM1 slot version and FM2 slot version, in which the A55 and A75 motherboards with FM1 sockets are mainly designed to meet the needs of the first-generation APU processors and the AMD Speed Dragon II X4 641 Charger 651 processors, while the motherboards with FM2 sockets are designed to meet the new processor requirements such as the second generation APU processors and the AMD Speed Dragon II X4 740amp 750K. The high-end A85 motherboard has only FM2 slots.

Among them, A55, A75 and A85 motherboards have little difference in performance, as long as there are some differences in expansion interfaces, among which the entry-level A55 is gradually abandoned by users because it does not have the popular USB3.0 and SATA3.0 interfaces. The most recommended motherboards are A75 and A85 motherboards. For the detailed differences between A55, A75 and A85 motherboards, please read the following:


Comprehensive, AMD Speed Dragon II X4740 processor is most suitable for A75 motherboard (FM2 slot type) and A85 motherboard, but because A75 motherboard is not much different from A85 motherboard, coupled with 740 processor positioning mainstream products, so in terms of performance-to-price ratio, it is not recommended to match the more expensive high-end A85 motherboard, A75 motherboard is recommended.

More recommended use of FM2 slot line motherboard are: gigabyte GA-F2A75M-HD2 motherboard, MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35 motherboard. Second-tier brand motherboards are: Yingtai Hi-Fi A75S3 motherboard, Seven Rainbow Tomahawk C.A75K M2 V14 motherboard, ASRock FM2A75M-DGS motherboard, Meijie SY-F2A85X energy-saving motherboard, etc., interested friends might as well learn more about it.
