The AMD Athlon X4 730 was a desktop processor with 4 cores, launched in October 2012. It is part of the Athlon lineup, using the Trinity architecture with Socket FM2. Athlon X4 730 has 4MB of L2 cache and operates at 2.8 GHz by default, but can boost up to 3.2 GHz, depending on the workload. AMD is building the Athlon X4 730 on a 32 nm production process using 1,303 million transistors. The silicon die of the chip is not fabricated at AMD, but at the foundry of GlobalFoundries. The multiplier is locked on Athlon X4 730, which limits its overclocking capabilities. With a TDP of 65 W, the Athlon X4 730 consumes typical power levels for a modern PC. AMD's processor supports DDR3 memory with adual-channel interface. The highest officially supported memory speed is 1866 MHz, but with overclocking (and the right memory modules) you can go even higher. For communication with other components in the computer, Athlon X4 730 uses a PCI-Express Gen 2 connection. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card. Hardware virtualization is available on the Athlon X4 730, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications.
