AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE AM3 Processor

Benchmark Reviews
3 May 2009
  • Conclusion: While the X4 955 Black Edition did not make it in time for the initial Phenom II launch, it's definitely a welcome addition. The new chip rounds out the Dragon Platform refresh and can now take its place as AMD's new flagship processor. In addition to the 200 MHz increase over the X4 940BE, the new X4 955 also brings full AM3 and DDR3 support.
  • Pros: Highest Phenom II clock speed yet, AM3 & DDR3 support, Unlocked multiplier, 8MB of total cache, AMD OverDrive 3.0, Excellent price/performance
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Wir müssen zugeben, dass wir seit den Athlon X2 Prozessoren von AMD keine Interessen an deren Produkten gezeigt haben. Das kommt natürlich nicht unbegründet, denn beim Kauf achtet man auf mehrere Punkte, die meistens zu Gunsten eines anderen Herstellers ausgefallen sind. Seit der Phenom II 955 erschienen ist, haben wir wieder unsere Lust und Interesse an AMD Prozessoren gefunden. Die Entwicklung zeigt in die richtige Richtung.

  • Excerpt: Seit AMD am 8. Januar 2009 die zweite Phenom Generation vorgestellt hat, versucht man Anschluss an die Prozessor Spitze zu finden. Dank der 45 nm Fertigung sind höhere Taktraten als mit den Vorgängermodellen möglich. Wenig später hat man die ersten AM3 Prozessoren ins Rennen geschickt, die auch DDR-3 Speicher unterstützen, die Modelle X4 810 und X3 720 BE. Leider waren die Taktraten hier weit außer Konkurrenz und es gab kaum einen Anlass diese Prozessoren zu kaufen.
