Dual-core AMD Phenom X2 6500 surfaces

Posted on Wednesday, September 10 2008 @ 23:41:19 CEST by

The Tech Report writes a dual-core AMD Phenom processor has been spotted in China.
A top-down photo of the CPU package shows AMD Athlon branding and a "6500" model number, but CPU-Z identifies the chip as a Phenom 6500 Black Edition. This chip definitely looks like a Phenom derivative, too. It has 2MB of L3 cache, SSE4A instruction set support, and a "B3" revision codeā€”the same one that identifies erratum-free Phenom X4s.

Chopping two cores off a Phenom X4 apparently didn't let AMD push clock speeds any higher: the sample runs at a lowly 2.3GHz. That said, Expreview's benchmarks show the specimen outrunning a 2.3GHz Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition in SuperPI, 33.43 seconds to 39.374 seconds.
