Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data inside! 86...

To be honest, I think Phenom II X4 975 was a weird release from AMD. Priced around the same as cheapest X6 processors, I can’t really see much point buying this product. It is true, however, that 975 is the fastest X4 processor from AMD – but the...

Another day, another minor variation on a familiar theme from AMD. By now you'll know our equally familiar refrain regarding the circa-2003 origins of AMD's performance PC processors, up to and including the latest Thuban sixcore models. But if AMD's...

Although AMD's Deneb core is by now tuned to perfection, its blade had became dull over time, and looking back, AMD has relied on its Deneb core for quite some time now. Introduction of a faster SKU than 3.50 GHz Phenom II X4, based on old Deneb core...

this puppy is clocked at a staggering 3.6GHz and is an unlocked Black Edition processor. And the BEs always offer tremendous overclock potential, BE processors definitely have our preference in terms of tweaking flexibility. So that's what we will be...

There is just one factor here which AMD can (and probably will) affect. That is price. AMD’s quad core processor could find a place in the market if AMD can get the price much closer to £99. It’s a mental milestone which might appeal to overclockers....

Follwing up the Fall release of the 3.5GHz Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition with a Winter release of the Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition seems like the logical thing for AMD to do. While the 100MHz provides a slight increase in performance over the...

Después de ver tantos resultados lo que más llama la atención es la diferencia de rendimiento entre dos procesadores de última generación como el 975 Black Edition y el 840, pero no por ello debemos de pensar que uno es impresionante y otro es malo,...
