AMD today released a new Phenom II that could be one of the last new introductions for the company before it enters its future in Fusion.
New to its desktop family is the AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition processor. The X4 980 is much like the X4 975, except it gains another 100MHz to hit 3.7GHz. It features the same 6MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 125W.
If you're familiar with the Phenom II family, then you'll know exactly what this latest member is all about. Tech Report has a quick lowdown on what it calls "An old horse gallops a few steps faster."
