AMD invited both media and vendors down to Los Angeles last week to learn about the company’s upcoming products and technologies, such as the Fusion-based Llano CPU (err, APU) and Radeon HD 6800 series.

AMD last month launched five processor models, three Athlon II’s and two Phenom II’s, and we’re taking a look at one of each. The Phenom II is a 3.20GHz dual-core, and a Black Edition dual-core at that, while the Athlon II is the ultra-affordable 2.9GHz quad-core.

If on the lookout for a budget processor, whether it be dual, tri or quad-core, there’s no better place to look than AMD.

We’re taking a look at two such models here, the X3 435 and X2 240e, to see how much bang can be had for so little buck.

by Rob Williams on November 14, 2009 in AMD Processors

People scoffed at AMD when it released its Phenom II X4 965 a few months ago thanks to the 140W power rating. To help make up for it, the company has now followed-up with a 125W version, sporting a lower price, along with improved C1E and DDR3-1333 support. With these improvements, is the X4 965 a first-choice CPU?
