Newer 45nm Athlon Regor vs old 7750 Phenomm Quad

Have AM2 AM2+ AM3 Asus Board with DDR2 RAM..
Would it be better to have a newer Athlon 2 instead of one of the original Phenoms?
The 4 cores and the L3 Cache
seam like the old Phenom would be a better choice...What of the newer 42nm tech makes them possibly a better choice besides less heat?

Thanks

    7750 is the model number of an Athlon X2 based on the Phenom core, it's not a quad. Since it isn't a quad, a newer Athlon II X2 beats it in every thing. Better performance per clock, lower power draw, lower heat out put, higher clock speeds, and much better overclocking.
  2. +1, Spot on. The 7750 is not a Phenom, although it is based on the older Phenom series. The new Athlon II will beat the older generation Phenom in every aspect you can think of, as loneninja mentioned.

    Also, look at getting at least an X3, the extra core will come in handy.

    Your Right, I meant a Phenom 9750.........Is an Original Phenom 9750 or 9850 better than a newer 45NM Athlon x2

    depends on if what you are doing can utilize the extra 2 cores or not

    For applications that can support 4 cores, probably. The Athlon II X3 or X4 is a different story though.
  7. You should consider the 3.0 Ghz Phenom II X4 940 BE if your motherboard supports it (probably does).It's one of the best powerful bang per bucks CPU available for the AM2+ Platform at newegg.About $96.See here on the best values CPU's.

    Surprisingly the older 2.5 Ghz Phenom X4 9850 BE is now currently the best value however the 3.0 Phenom II X4 940 BE is more powerful and has more cache memory too.
    If you're looking for an upgrade don't overlook the 940 BE.Quite potent.Not as potent as the AM3 Phenom II X4's but far less expensive.
