AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE and Phenom II X4 840 (Socket AM3) CPUs - PCSTATS.com AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE and Phenom II X4 840 (Socket AM3) CPUs
Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 4:02PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"There really is nothing "new" to talk about here. Well ok - there is the fact that both of these got a slight speed increase over what is currently available in their lines. The 975 BE gets pushed to 3.6GHz while the 840 gets a bump to 3.2. Overall, not a bad increase, but we do want to see if this is all marketing or if it really means better performance for the consumer. Overclocking the Phenom II X4 975 BE was not all that hard. We simply tweaked the multiplier and also adjusted the core frequency a little bit (along with a small voltage bump) and we were off. The problem comes from the relatively low overclocks we are still getting."
