Phenom - Models
Three different CPU models were mentioned in the first slide of the presentation we received in preparation for AMD's event.
|Name||Clock Speed||L2 Cache||L3 Cache||TDP|
|AMD Phenom 9700||2.4 GHz||4x 512 kB||2 MB||125 W|
|AMD Phenom 9600||2.3 GHz||4x 512 kB||2 MB||95 W|
|AMD Phenom 9500||2.2 GHz||4x 512 kB||2 MB||95 W|
The first slide of AMD's Phenom presentation
We tested all three models extensively.
AMD Phenom 9700
AMD Phenom 9600
AMD Phenom 9500
However, once the presentation reached the point where specific models were mentioned, AMD only spoke about two of the models.
Now there's only talk of two CPUs...
As you can imagine, the journalists present asked why AMD's presentation was limited to the Phenom 9500 and 9600 models and what had happened to the 9700...

good review but you should have had included more result of the overclocked phenom. i just want to know how much juce i you can push out of it for me it is a must it beats the 6400+ otherwise its not worth purchasing in my opinion, it just has to beat its older generation when its running at same clocks.that is why amd has to work on its clock speed and cache. hopefully deneb will be out soon. i would also realy appriciate it to see some review about the phenom 9850 black edition compared against both the 6000+ 6400+ and q6600 and q9300 and maybe some e8xxx model. with overclocked results. pushed it to the maximum. would be realy cool hehe :)Reply
The SB700 does indeed support at least one PATA port as my motherboard has an IDE connector and I can use it with the ATIIXP PATA driver.Reply
