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...

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...
