Damn the 7750 is a great deal for budget systems as it is, if it can be unlock to a quadcore that would be great too, not holding my breath though.

Still trying to find benches and stability tests for kuma with the 2 extra cores enabled. If this checks out we could have our first quad core for under $100

Not interesting at all. This chip is a gaming chip, if u turn it into a quadcore it will just be a slow, very hot, old quadcore using 65nm production technology. The new Phenom II is based on 45nm production technology and thus will use less power when comparing per MHz.

In other words, you can unlock this CPU and get an old quadcore, but its better to have only 2 (or even 1) core and concentrate on clockspeed instead, which is most important to games and other single threaded apps.

I would rather have and old quad core than an old dual core.


And the old B2 Phenom's such as the 9600BE and 9500 have been under $100 for some time now, other Phenom models such as the Phenom 9850 and 9950 have been going on sale lately for some good prices too, just a few weeks ago I got a 9850 for $129. Sure it's the old Phenom, but it suits my needs and saved me $50 at the time from getting the cheapest available Phenom II X4.

Same here, i would rather pay ~$70 and do the unlocking thingi than $129 on a quad chip.

it's a higher clock aswell, I wonder how high you could OC one of them, since that one's going at 3ghz.
