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....100

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...80

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...-
