AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition CPU - fighting back against Sandy Bridge?

10 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Bottom line: the 3.6GHz Phenom II X6 975 Black Edition processor would have been great in January 2010. Fast forward and a year and its appeal is diminished, if not quite extinguished.

Expert Review

4 January 2011
  • Excerpt: AMD’s new high-end quad-core CPU is a good choice for upgraders, but if you’re building from scratch, Intel’s comparable "Sandy Bridge" chip is speedier at around the same price.
  • Pros: Good value for upgrading an aging AMD-based system, Compatible with older AM2+ motherboards, DDR2 memory
  • Cons: Outclassed by Intel’s latest similarly priced CPU, Only slight speed bump over its predecessor
