AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: While the initial Phenom II launch was an improvement in leaps and bounds over its original Phenom predecessors, it still left AMD fighting against Intel's Core 2 parts, something which they could only really do on a price-oriented footing rather than in terms of outright performance.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor Review

PCStats
15 February 2010
  • Summary: In most other respects the quad core 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 125W revision remains the same. The architecture is "Deneb", the socket is AM3 and the CPU still features 6MB of shared L3 and 512KB of L2 cache for each of the four cores.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition review

TechSpot
7 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Phenom II X4 965 is also multiplier unlocked, which should make overclocking painfully easy to the average user. AMD claims they are seeing better overclocking results with the Phenom II X4 965 compared to the 955 on average. In the little time we had to devote to overclocking testing we reached a solid 3.90GHz overclock which is better than the initial clock speed we got from the 955 (3.70GHz) before resorting to more radical settings and settling for 3.85GHz.

AMD Phenom II 965 X4 Black Edition C3

OverClock Intelligence Agency
7 December 2009
  • Summary: Minor changes to architecture, improvements in manufacturing that result in better yields, and reductions in operating voltage requirements are all benefits of a processor core revision that keep up demand for current chips while new technology is still in the development stage. Overclockers especially look forward to new revision releases as they typically result in chips that respond better to increased operating frequencies.

AMD Phenom II 965BE C3

Metku Mods
25 November 2009
  • Conclusion: As a conclusion the AMD flagship proved to be a very competent package. The next step will be to see how well it copes against Intel's latest LGA1156 platform, but it sure made short work of the older S775-based quad core Q9450. With the C3 revision came a lower power consumption, but 125 watts is still on the high side.
  • Pros: Low platform cost, Good performance, Downwards compatible with AM2+ motherboards, Low idle power usage, Easy overclocking
  • Cons: High power consumption when under load

AMD Phenom-II X4-965 BE 125W CPU HDZ965FBK4DGM

Benchmark Reviews
14 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Benchmark Reviews begins each conclusion with a short summary for each area that we rate. The first is performance, which considers how effective the 125W AMD Phenom-II X4-965 processor operated in relation to the closest price-point competition. While the synthetic benchmark tests were inconclusive and favored the X4-965 or i5-750 depending on the suite, but gaming performance was definitive.
  • Cons: Trails behind Intel in CAD/CAM performance
