  • Summary: The AMDPhenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor looks as if it is an excellent choice for gamers and computer enthusiasts. It is currently the quickest of the AMD Phenom line and is priced very competitively with the equivalent Intel processor. Performing neck and neck with the Intel Q6600 (2.4GHz), the AMD Phenom 9950 (2.6GHz) becomes a formidable rival.

  • Conclusion: Because CineBench has seperate single- and multi-threaded modes, it makes for a good benchmark for power consumption. To test this, we ran each test with the system plugged into our  in multi threaded mode. The tests were then repeated in single-threaded mode. This should give us a good idea on how much power these processors consume across a wider variety of full-load scenarios - after all, you're not always loading all four cores!

  • Conclusion: Performance Summary: Summarizing the performance of the Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition processor is a relatively easy matter.  The Phenom X4 9950 is the fastest desktop CPU to be released by AMD to date.  Due to its 2.6GHz core clock speed, the X4 9950 is roughly 4% faster than the X4 9850 across the board.  In comparison to Intel's offerings, the Phenom X4 9950 is about on par with the Core 2 Quad Q6600, trading victories depending on the test.

  • Conclusion: So again it comes to if you are using applications that are designed and optimized for multi-core processors. If you are addicted to gaming or office use, then perhaps a much lower priced AMD Phenom triple core could be more interesting. In our eyes, the AMD Phenom X4 9950 is a good solution when paired with an AMD 790GX motherboard.

  • Conclusion: Hyötyohjelmia ajaessa se kuitenkin häviää pahasti kumppanilleen sekä yhtä että montaa ydintä käyttävissä testeissä. Hintaansa nähden sen suoritukset molemmissa kategorioissa ovat suorastaan huonot. Toisaalta, X4 9950 Black Edition on ainoa kerro ...
