Phenom II X4 810 benched

Review: Slower Phenom II X4 for the DDR3 platform

Today begins the era of DDR3 for AMD. Unfortunately, not all boards are ready yet, so we had no choice but to test it with a DDR2 board. The good news is that the new Phenom II X4 810's memory controller can handle both DDR2 and DDR3.

The major difference between the 900 series is the reduced L3 cache size, down from 6MB to 4MB. Apart from that, the new CPU features a 95W TDP envelope, which OEM integrators might find particularly interesting. Because it's not a Black Edition, overclocking can only be managed via the integrated clock-generator - the "virtual FSB".
