  • Summary: It's worth considering the Phenom 9900 if you want to extract top performance out of your existing AMD-based system, but the upgrade path might not be a smooth one. Wait until the motherboard manufacturers iron out any BIOS issues before investing in it.
  • Pros: Solid 3D rendering performance, ran reliably at 2.86GHz, runs very quietly when paired with a motherboard that has dynamic fan control
  • Cons: There are many reported BIOS issues with Phenom so wait until these are resolved before investing, we couldn't get it to work on an older AM2 socket-based motherboard
