AMD has just taken the wraps off their newest Phenom processors, and we think we are impressed. The entire lineup, which ranges from a triple-core low-end, to a quad-core beast, are all 65 nanometer chips. That means more efficiency - they retain the performance of AMD’s previous 90nm chips, but with reduced power consumption. Of course, that is likely not what you care about most when it comes to the new Phenoms - you want the details, right? Well, we have the Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition, Phenom X4 9750, Phenom X4 9100e Energy Efficient, and the Phenom X3 triple-core. The X4 9850 and X4 9750 feature true quad-core chips - if you don’t know what that means, here’s a video explanation of true quad core from AMD themselves.
The X4 9100e Energy Efficient chip is just that - it’s the world’s first 65-watt quad-core desktop processor. Lastly, the X3 triple-core Phenom chips are another first - these are the world’s first x86 triple-core processors. A nice bump up from dual core chips for those who can’t afford to go all out with a quad core. These will be available in 2.1 GHz and 2.3 GHz options. We have the specs on each after the jump.
