Only for the Phenom 9850 and 9850 Black Edition has the hypertransport protocol/memory controller interface been raised to a clock rate of 2000 MHz. The Phenom X3 and all other models use 1800 MHz.

Phenom with B2 stepping

Due on the TLB error, AMD was only able to deliver the first Phenom models with B2 stepping up to a maximum standard clock rate of 2.30 GHz. The Phenom 9700 with 2.40 GHz was put on ice for this reason. Some shops are still listing the Phenom 9700 which will probably never actually be supplied. On the AMD specification website, this processor is no longer listed. The two Phenom X3 models, 8600 and 8400 with B2 stepping, will not officially be available for purchase in a shop, since these are reserved specifically for OEMs. AMD thus officially only offers five quad core processors with B2 stepping.
