AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition - 2 Overclocking

Written by Eliot Kucharik

Review: Good performance for €62


The new Phenom's clock is set 2.80GHz which is the highest of any K10, 65nm based CPU so far. We noticed the VCore is 1.3250V, which is quite high compared to other CPUs. You can always lower the VCores, that will shave off some bucks on your power bill and we'll save a square inch of Brazilian rainforest while we're at it.

Overclocking in the BIOS is a piece of cake, because this is a multiplier-free Black Edition CPU. Just increase the multiplier and you are good to go. While the 7750 run with 1.3500V at 3.30GHz, this CPU needed 1.4250V for the same speed. It also did not go higher compared to the Athlon X2 7750.
