Though the Phenom II can’t win a performance fight with the identically clocked Core i7 920, it offers almost as much grunt for a far lower price....

Today we take a look at two products in one- the new AMD Phenom 810 CPU which introduces AMD to the world of DDR3 and the MSI 790GX-G65 mothebroard, upon which we’ve tested this CPU. The Phenom II X4 8xx series reduces the L3 cache on the Phenom...

The Phenom II X4 810 has made a difference with 4MB L3 cache. You can tell also by the results demonstrated in the video review that the 45nm chip has better power efficiency than its older cousin the Phenom 9950 which makes it an attractive choice...

We tested the Phenom II X4 810 back in February and wanted a bit more performance out of it. AMDs baffling decision to release an entry-level CPU supporting DDR3 seemed rushed, coming on the heels of the Phenom II X4 940. Were still scratching our...

Compared to 940 Black Edition, performances at same clock for Phenom II 840 don’t have significantly lower results. Phenom II X4 940 was 6MB L3 cache but at 1.8GHz. On the contrary X4 810 has 4MB L3 cache but at 2.0GHz. Both CPUs has similar...

Whats AMDs up to? Youd assume it would use a high-end chip to launch its new AM3 socket. But here we are with this 2.6GHz quad-core model. AM3 is actually physically identical to the AM2 socket, which means this CPU will also slot into many...

AMDs Phenom II AM3 X4 810 2.6GHz is an excellent processor to consider for your next rig if you looking for the best value for your dollar in the performance computing segment. AMD has also posted a few videos on YouTube.com advertising the...

Frankly speaking, AMD’s timing with the launch of their new Socket AM3 platform for CPUs supporting DDR3 SDRAM is a little strange. For some reason, this platform didn’t come out a month ago when they first announced a new Phenom II...

We have two new components in play here. First are AMDs new triple- and quad-core Phenom II processors. Second is Asus Socket AM3-based M4A79T. If you take Socket AM3 out of the picture, the new Phenom IIs mainly serve to fill in and update AMDs...

By my count, the Phenom II X4 810 won 28 of the tests, and the Core 2 Quad Q8200 won 21 of the tests - and there were five tied results. What does that mean? Some of these results were so often, so damned close...In the end this means that as long as...

The new middle-class devices are a welcome addition to AMDs rather poor Phenom II array. The new X3 is beating Intels Core 2 Duo in many benchmarks while the X4 - even at lower clock speeds - can keep the old Phenom models and Intels entry-level...

We were interested in how the CPU will do with DDR3, but due to the fact that the boards are not yet available, we had to perform our tests with a DDR2 board. We suspect that the gain will only be marginal, and since DDR2 is still cheaper, it does not...

AMDs long anticipated move to socket AM3 is finally here, but it disappoints somewhat with reduced cache sizes and clock rates as well as entry-level performance. The price is right,...

You know the more we test Phenom II processors the more we seem to like them. AMD is fighting a stigma though. The one thing that is ghosting through everybodys mind has to be...

When AMD launched the Phenom II X4 940 and 920 I called it a True Return to Competition. With the rest of the lineup now more fleshed out, its truly a return to competition. At every price point that AMD targets, it has produced a CPU competitive to...

The first wave of 45nm Phenom II processors showed that AMD still has a real chance in the desktop processor market, and that the company finally has a potential Core 2 killer. This latest release does shore up some questions about Socket AM3, and gets...

By Extreme Overclocking on

If your head isn't spinning from looking at all the graphs, let me bottom-line it for you. The new Phenom II X4 810 could be considered the next step past a classic Phenom 9950, both run the same core clock, but the additional L3 cache (4MB vs 2MB)...

A total of five new AMD Socket AM3 processors have arrived, and with them comes support for DDR3 memory kits at a price tag that won't cause sticker shock. ...

The introduction of DDR 3 doesn’t make a fundamental difference to Phenom II, but the new Socket AM3 processors deliver plenty of bangs for your buck and put AMD right back in the game. ®...

The X3 720 Black Edition looks to be a great enthusiast CPU for those on a budget that are looking for some very solid performance in the gaming arena. Match it up with some inexpensive DDR3-1333, which should be fairly easy to do since AMD’s...
