AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Processor Review

AMD are a company who like to regularly refresh their CPU ranges, bringing performance to the market at existing price points. The last time we saw this happen was back in January when the latest X6 and X4 CPUs were launched. Now five months later we have the newest refresh of the X4 range and replacing the 975 Black Edition at the top of the product stack is the Phenom 2 X4 980 Black Edition. Today we have one on our test bench and will see how it compares to one of the latest Intel CPUs as well as existing AMD models in a selection of synthetic and real world tests which include Blu-Ray 3D, 3DMark and media conversion.
