AMD to debut 3.4GHz Phenom II 965 BE on August 13th

Posted on Monday, August 03 2009 @ 15:26:40 CEST by

Bright Side of News reports AMD will finally be passing the 3.2GHz barrier on August 13th with the introduction of the Phenom II 965 Black Edition. This chip has a frequency of 3.4GHz and is the first model from AMD to pass the 3.2GHz barrier that held for six years.
In only ten days time [NDA on processors that AMD sent out to selected reviewers expires on August 13th, 2009 at 06:01AM], AMD will release the Phenom II 965 Black Edition, a multiplier-unlocked processor ticking at 3.4 GHz with the expected power consumption. After the unhappy break that was K10 e.g. Barcelona/Agena, it is good to see AMD improving on the CPU core and releasing faster clocked products and keeping roughly the same thermal levels just like they did with Athlon and Athlon 64.

Also worth noting is that we might see AMD or Intel releasing the fastest clocked x86 processor of all times in 2010 - the current record lies with Pentium Extreme Edition 965 clocked at 3.73 GHz, featuring a "lovely" real-world TDP of 162W. With advancements in process technology, a 162W TDP would now fit a quad-core processor at 4+GHz, instead of dual-core at 3.73 GHz - can anyone say that technology is not moving ahead?
