Fourth representative of the Athlon II four core range, the Athlon II X4 645 adds 100 MHz to the clock in comparison to the 640. This quad-core, then, is clocked at 3.1 GHz, which is enough to see its performance level increase a little more than 1% on the 640.

This keeps it just a little above the Intel Core i3 540. This also has two cores but at a clock of 3.06 GHz.
