AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition :Last of the Breed
Posted by newsbot on May 03rd 2011



In the end, this is a simple 100 MHz increase in clockspeedfor AMD for their high end quad core processor. It is not all thatmuch faster than the previous X4 975, but at least it does not consumeall that much more power than the previous model. It is a goodall-around performer, and would make a solid foundation for aproductivity and gaming machine for most users. Invariably though,most eyes are drawn to the horizon and the promise of Llano andBulldozer. Hopefully for AMD these next generation processors willallow them to more adequately compete with Intel when it comes to rawperformance.
