Phenom ii x4 850 denab Tags: CPUs Phenom Last response: October 8, 2012 1:23 PM in CPUs Share darren0000 October 8, 2012 12:58:08 PM how does this phenom ii x4 850 denab stack against the black editions 965 etc? More about : phenom 850 denab wr6133 a b à CPUs October 8, 2012 1:04:27 PM It's between a 955BE and a 965BE at stock. Though the 9xxBE's obviously can be easily overclocked alot higher as they have unlocked multipliers putting them in the lead if your an overclocker. mocchan a c 109 à CPUs October 8, 2012 1:05:20 PM It's essentially a lower clocked X4 965 with a locked multiplier and lacks L3 cache. **EDIT** I was looking at the wrong section on the frequency chart My apologies, wr6133 is correct.

The 850 is unrelated its a Deneb core so has L3 just the L3 is "locked" by default, somehow yours has unlocked. darren0000 October 8, 2012 1:23:04 PM somehow? i dunno how it unlocked it or how to tell or is it just pot luck with pairing the coreect motherboard with the chip, thumbs up wr6133 5star you know your stuff Can't find your answer ?
