tbreak.com: Today we take a look at AMDs updated Phenom CPU. Besides the slight speed bump, these B3 stepping based CPUs are now free of the TLB Erratum bug that AMD rightly disclosed during the launch of Phenom that causes the CPU to crash under extreme workload conditions.
driverheaven.net: It has been some time since we reviewed an AMD processor on Driver Heaven, but quite a lot has happened since then with the release of various CPU revisions, as well as triple core, the 780G chipset and further energy efficient Athlon models. So today it is time to catch up with the current range of AMD products starting with the Phenom 9850.
legitreviews.com: The new AMD Phenom X4 50-series of processors is how Phenom should have launched back in November of last year. This stepping of Phenom doesn't offer higher performance versus the older Phenom B1 and B2 steppings, but does remove the TLB erratum that caused many consumers to skip over Phenom when considering a platform for their next system.
motherboards.org: One thing AMD is stressing is the upgradeability of their older motherboards to support their new Quad Core CPUs. AMD sent a list of compatible motherboards that are on AMDs Recommended List and it includes older motherboards including the nForce 570 chipset M2N-32-SLI and the AMD 690 boards that were prevalent a couple of years ago.
techreport.com: At last, AMD is shipping two new Phenoms worthy of your attention. The TLB erratum is toast, clock speeds are up, and prices are down. Come see how the Phenom X4 9750 and 9850 Black Edition match up against Intel's strongest offerings.
rbmods.com: It was awhile ago we tested a processor so today it's time again. AMD sent us their second fastest processor that is on the market right now, X4 9860BE. We are going to put this vs our Intel QX6700 that is a bit outdated compared to the faster i7 processors but you will also see some results on how the i7 perform so lets get this show on the road.
