AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition review

TechSpot
7 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Comparing the Phenom II X4 series to the latest Intel Core i7 processors is not completely fair, as they are intended to serve two different markets, at least for now. At $290 the Core i7 920 is slowly closing the gap, though with the current pricing of Intel X58 motherboards and triple-channel DDR3 memory kits, the main target for the Phenom II X4 is still the Intel Core 2 Quad.

6 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Over the course of a few months in late 2007 and early-to-mid 2008, AMD unveiled their Spider platform, consisting of AMD-built desktop processors, chipsets, and graphics cards, and refreshed said platform with faster processors and graphics cards. Fast forward to today, and AMD is doing the same thing, but this time with the newer, more powerful Dragon platform. It's like Déjà Vu all over again, as they say.
  • Pros: Strong Performance, Good Power Consumption, Great Upgrade Path, DDR2 or DDR3 Compatible, Overclockable, Competitive Pricing, Fastest AMD CPUs to Date
  • Cons: Still Nipping At intel's Heals
