AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition Socket AM3 Triple Core Processor

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition Socket AM3 Triple Core Processor - October 5, 2009

Today I will be looking at my first triple core processor, the AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition. It has been around about six months now, and the price has dropped a fair amount, making this CPU a definite consideration for an economy rig. With some careful shopping, using this processor and the motherboard I will be using for this review, you could easily build a rig less peripherals and operating system for under $600. Read on to check out the Phenom II X3 720!

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Processor

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Processor - April 27, 2009

In March 2008, AMD released the Phenom X4, as "the world's first true quad-core processor". Despite pre-release problems, the Phenom X4 Agena core, with a 64Kb + 64Kb L1 Cache, 512Kb L2 Cache, and 2MB L3 Cache, on die memory controller, and 65nm process, wasn't a bad CPU. It did lack the speed and power of the Core 2 Duo, but was at a lower price point, and was definitely an upgrade from the Athlon X2. Today I will be looking at the next generation of Phenom, the Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition. AMD has added some "umph" to the X4 to give it some more processing power. Will the X4 940 show up my first generation 9950 X4, the last of its generation? Read on to see!
