AMD Phenom II

Product Summary & Final Conclusions:

Once again, AMD delivers new processors at a prices that are extremely competitive. The Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition continues to deliver top-notch quad-core performance for under $200. While the Phenom II X4 840 still brings home the bacon in a budget quad-core for only $100. The only processors Intel has for $100 or less is dual-core "Wolfdale" processors which simply can't compete.

Now that 2011 is finally here, it will be interesting to see exactly when the next generation AMD processors will be released... and even more importantly how they will compete with Intel. Are these two chips the last hurrah for the Phenom II / Athlon II lines? Only time will tell...

AMD has always kept people's pocket books in mind, they price processors according to what the average consumer can afford. Likewise, AMD keeps their eye on upgradeability and backwards compatibility. As mentioned before, all current AM3 processors will work in older generation AM2+ motherboards (with a BIOS update), obviously current AM3 boards, and even the future next-generation AM3+ boards.
