AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition and ECS A890GXM-A2 Review
With CES kicking off in Las Vegas this week most of the world's major tech brands are showcasing their new products for the first time, others pushing new models of existing tech. This means that this week we get plenty of news and new items to talk about, such as the Intel Sandy Bridge components yesterday and a number of items later in the week that we can't mention yet... One component we can now talk about though is a new CPU from AMD which is launching today.
The Phenom 2 X4 975 Black Edition is the new high end model in AMD's four core CPU range and they are aiming it at the sub $200 price range for enthusiasts and gamers. Today we have one on our test bench and will see how it compares to the latest Intel CPUs as well as an existing AMD model in a selection of synthetic and real world tests which include Blu-Ray 3D, gaming and media conversion.
