CPUAMD’s new Phenom processors and Spider platform for desktop systems incorporate some impressive steps forward for the chip maker. The chips, which are made using a 65-nanometre manufacturing process, feature both a native quad-core design and...

With the clichéd Phenom-phenomenal word play out of the way, let’s get stuck into the ins, outs and all abouts of the newly released quad core from AMD.This quad core processor marks the end of a very, very, very long wait. Following delay...

AMDs Phenom might have come a day late (closer to a year) and a dollar short, but its those short dollars that have kept value seekers looking to the green team for the latest technology. Today were treated to a special appearance of AMDs upcoming...

The initial release of the AMD Phenom processor was a very rocky one, littered with low clock speeds, poor memory performance scores and TLB errata. Some things have changed since then, and at 2.6 GHz, the Phenom 9900 offers a more competitive part...

Well all the benchmarks have been run and the results should speak for themselves. I am impressed with some aspects and disappointed with others. Im very disappointed that I could not overclock the Phenom 9900 and both motherboards that I have in my...

I believe many of you remember the triumph of the first 64-bit x86 Athlon 64 processors. They were the ones that made AMD processor leader for a significant period of time: until Intel started rolling out their CPUs on Core micro-architecture. It was...

I was actually quite pleased with the performance of the Phenom 9900. Given AMDs public commitment to fixing the TLB errata, and their move to 45nm with the "K10.5" architecture (Barcelona with some additional improvements) I suspect that AMD will...

The initial comparisons between the new quad core Phenom and the Intel processors weren favorable for AMD, as Phenom cannot compete with Intels top of the line Core 2 offerings. Especially out of reach for AMD is the 45 nm Penryn generation, which was...

Its worth considering the Phenom 9900 if you want to extract top performance out of your existing AMD-based system, but the upgrade path might not be a smooth one. Wait until the motherboard manufacturers iron out any BIOS issues before investing in...

By HEXUS.net on

The AMD Phenom 9900-based Spider platform looks fantastic on paper. The CPUs architecture is manifestly better than K8s, the chipset - especially northbridge - is better than RD580, and the Radeon HD 3850s offer a potent price-to-performance ratio....

AMD's Phenom Processor falls short of expectations and needs to have the bugs worked out with higher clock frequencies....

By ExtremeTech on

These 65nm chips may lag a bit behind Intel in the "delivering quad-core to desktops" race, but theyre not without their own tricks. For starters, these chips are what AMD calls "True Quad Core," meaning that a single piece of silicon contains all...

International Review By PC Games Hardware on

Bei manchen Test schon, bei anderen nicht: Der liegt beim 3DMark06 mit geringem Vorsprung vor Intels 2,4-GHz-Vierkerner. In unserem Anno-1701-Benchmark ist hingegen der ein wenig schneller. Bei erzielen beide CPUs das gleiche Ergebnis. Hier hängt...
