AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition: back with a bang

23 April 2009
  • Conclusion: Phenom13 Clocked in at 3.20GHz and able to interface with either DDR2 or DDR3 memory the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition AM3 is a good chip if it comes in at around the £200 mark. By dint of extra clock-speed it is able to give Intel's high-end Core 2 Quads - Q9550 and Q9650 - a run for their money and, in most cases, isn't too far behind the omnipotent Intel Core i7 920, either.

  • Excerpt: AMD gives its high-end Phenom II X4 processor a speed boost, but the supporting utilities are even more interesting than the hardware.
  • Pros: Good performance for the price, Has overclocking headroom, Uses inexpensive motherboards, Supports both DDR2 and DDR3 RAM
  • Cons: In most tests, displayed lesser performance than the slowest Intel Core i7 chip, Existing AM2+ motherboards may need a BIOS upgrade

AMD Phenom II X4 955

21 December 2010
  • Conclusion: AMD zaprezentował najszybszy z oferowanych dotąd procesorów AMD – Phenom II X4 955. Podczas gdy Intel ponownie zaczyna słynne niegdyś rajdy po podstawkach AMD proponuje pozostanie przy znanych podstawkach AM2+ lub AM3 dodając do nich nieco nowych rozwiązań. To dobra wiadomość dla tych, którzy chcą unowocześnić komputer bez wymiany wszystkich podzespołów. Phenom II X4 955 przeznaczony jest do podstawki AM3. Oznacza to współpracę z pamięciami DDR3.
  • Pros: Bardzo dobra wydajność, Odblokowany mnożnik
  • Cons: Brak
