The FX7020 boasts the latest quad-core processor from AMD, the 2.3GHz Phenom 9600. It has four processing cores, 2MB of L3 cache and is air-cooled. Gateway's new FX 7020 desktop is not really in competition with the likes of the XPS 720 or HP's Blackbird 002. Instead, it's a high-end gaming PC with very good specs, offered at a decent price. It features a revamped chassis, and upgraded hardware throughout.
