AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Processor
Posted by newsbot on August 09th 2009



When originally released, Phenom had a nick name of the black death. The TLB bug with the L3 cache caused serious stability and reliability problems and the only work around was to disable the L3 cache in the BIOS, removing any performance benefits the Phenom processor had over the Athlon X2 line. This, however, has thankfully now changed. BE stepping Phenoms removed this problem and since then a second generation Phenom II has emerged, which is one of the most impressive processors we have seen. Today we have on display the Black Edition 955 clocked at 3.2GHz, AMDís fastest processor to date. Letís see just how well this baby performs compared to its 810 counterpart as well as Intelís Core i7.
