Conclusion: In November 2007, we concluded that AMD's Phenom X4 9600 was no match for Intel's Core 2 Quad Q6600. In April 2008, we concluded that AMD's improved Phenom X4 9850 was no match for Intel's Core 2 Quad Q6600.
Summary: As you have seen on the previous pages of benchmarks, the AMD Phenom X3 8750 perform outstandingly. Compared to Intel’s Core 2 Duo E6600 which is priced at $230, $45 more than the Phenom X3, the performance is outstanding for its price.

Summary: We'll now show you some tests we have done on overall power consumption of the PC, and the overall power consumption is just fine. Mind you that we are looking at the complete PC power draw from the wall socket, there will always be some subjective factor in this, none the less .. pretty reliable.
Summary: On the moment of running the tests (mid-October 2008), the retail prices for Phenom X3 8750 start with $172. In our humble opinion, that is a bit too expensive and will not let AMD to overcome the trend of user migration to Core 2 Duo.
Conclusion: We want to believe. That despite all the troubles besieging AMD, the semiconductor giant can somehow engineer a solution, whatever that it may, out of the renewed iron grip that Intel has once again exerted over the CPU market.

Conclusion: It's not going to get AMD any new users, but existing AMD platform users might benefit from the extra upgrade option. On its own, the tri-core Phenom X3 8750 is a fast CPU, but when its street price is compared against Intel's Core 2 Quad 6600 CPU, it doesn't look good at all.
