Good News to all AMD users! Three new Athlon II and three Phenom II processors have been launched, increasing the company’s already released 8 chip series, and ATI Radeon HD 5000 series by six more – Phenom II X 6 1075 T, Phenom II X 4970 Black Edition, Phenom II X 2560 Black Edition, Athlon II X 4645, Athlon II X 3450 and the Athlon II X 2265.
Some of the very interesting features like Turbo Core acceleration technology and six core performance, can be got through Phenom II X 6 1075 for less than $250, while the Phenom II X Black Edition can be looked upon as a comfortably priced substitute and suitable for people looking at performance tuning either for increased activity level or lesser power usage.
True to its name, the Phenom II X6 1075 T, falls in between AMD’s existing 1055 T and 1090 T 6-core offerings. No doubt they are slightly taxing to the user due to AMD’s recent price cuts, but they are being brought in at the same price points. AMD is already on a marathon with their processors especially with the introduction of these six processors.
The Phenom II X 4970 Black Edition depends on the Deneb Die, which also has great overclock energy. This processor priced at $185, is considered among the Company’s quickest core processor ever. To be precise, it is clocked at 3.5 GHz and is an unlocked Black Edition processor.
Moving onto the Athlon group, of low power processors, the Athlon II X 645 contains 4 physical CPU cores, a clock frequency of 3.1 GHz and costs $122. The Athlon II X 3450 again costing $122, can be upgraded upto 100GHz, whereas the Athlon II X 2,265 consists 2MB of L2 Cache and the cost is $76.
With the release of this new series, AMD has managed to get hold of a majority of the market by offering quality for a competitively lower price. It was the Black Editions that contained unlocked multipliers for easy overclocking. It is a great chance for people to enjoy without having to shell down big money!
