AMD's Phenom X3 8750 processor
Posted by newsbot on April 23rd 2008



AMD’s Phenom X3 8750 is a good processor in isolation and onethatoverclocks incredibly well based on our experiences. However, the sadfact is that the three Phenom cores aren’t fast enough to see off thecompetition from Intel’s higher-clocked (and sometimes cheaper)dual-core processors and the sucker punch for AMD really is the Core 2Quad Q6600. In applications where the triple core Phenom has the potentialto show its muscle, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 waltzes in and mops it up inquite spectacular fashion. It’s a shame, because we were expecting thePhenom X3 8750 to be a good value proposition for the enthusiast.However, if you’re looking to upgrade a current socket AM2 system, we’drecommend spending that little bit more and getting a quad-core Phenom– it’s absolutely worth it.
