Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
AMD's Phenom X3 8750 processor  - AMD's Phenom X3 8750 processor
Wed, April 23 2008 | 4:32PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"AMD’s Phenom X3 8750 is a good processor in isolation and one that overclocks incredibly well based on our experiences. However, the sad fact is that the three Phenom cores aren’t fast enough to see off the competition from Intel’s higher-clocked (and sometimes cheaper) dual-core processors and the suker punch for AMD really is the Core 2 Quad Q6600. In applications where the triple core Phenom has the potential to show its muscle, the Core 2 Quad Q6600 waltzes in and mops it up in quite spectacular fashion. It’s a shame, because we were expecting the Phenom X3 8750 to be a good value proposition for the enthusiast. However, if you’re looking to upgrade a current socket AM2 system, we’d recommend spending that little bit more and getting a quad-core Phenom – it’s absolutely worth it."
