AMD readies three new Phenoms

820, 975BE and 910e


Back in September we reported that AMD was planning to launch a new Phenom II, the 975 Black Edition. The new CPU is almost here, as some regional distributors are already listing it.

Unfortunately we still don't know the price, but we have its spec and it's impressive. Clocked at 3.6GHz, the 975 is AMD's fastest Phenom to date and it will ship with an unlocked multiplier. It has 4 x 512kB of L2 cache and 6MB of shared L3 cache. The only downside is its thermonuclear TDP, rated at 140W.

However, consumers looking for something greener and cooler can look forward to the Phenom II X4 910e. It's clocked at 2.6GHz, has 2MB of L2 and 6MB of L3 cache, but it's TDP is a rather modest 65W. It's already listed in our price search engine here at a rather hefty €145,- to €160,-.

Halfway in between AMD will launch the Phenom II X4 820. It's clocked at 2.8GHz, has a 95W TDP, 2MB of L2 and 4MB of L3 cache. It is probably the most sensible of the three, but 3.6GHz just sounds better.

The new CPUs should launch pretty soon, but we're still far from sure about the launch date or pricing. Expect prices to be similar the CPUs they are replacing, the 965, 905e and 810.
