AMD Launches Five New Phenom II CPUs for Socket AM3

AMD logoAMD is launching five new Phenom II CPUs, building on their launch last month of the Phenom II X4 940 at 3.0GHz and the Phenom II X4 920 at 2.8GHz.

Today sees the addition of the Phenom II X4 910 at 2.6GHz to the 900 series. The 800 series is similar to the 900 series, but reduces the shared L3 cache to just 4MB, or 1MB per core. The 700 series has just three cores, but retains the full 6MB of L3 cache, bringing it to 2MB per core.

The uncore, which is comprised of the memory controller and the L3 cache, receives a bump to 2.0GHz. All five CPUs can be used in the new AM3 socket in order to access DDR3, or the older AM2+ socket in order to stay with cheaper DDR2. This versatility allows a user to upgrade their CPU on an AM2+ platform now, then upgrade to an AM3 platform later when DDR3 prices go down.

AMD is also planning more launches in April and June.

April 2009:

  • Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz with 8MB total cache on the AM3 socket
  • Athlon X4 615 2.7GHz with 2MB total cache on the AM3 socket
  • Athlon X4 605 2.5GHz with 2MB total cache on the AM3 socket
  • Athlon X3 420 Athlon X3 420 2.8GHz with 1.5MB total cache on the AM3 socket
  • Athlon X3 410 Athlon X3 410 2.6GHz with 1.5MB total cache on the AM3 socket

June 2009:

  • Athlon X2 240 2.8GHz with 2MB total cache on the AM3 socket
  • Athlon X2 235 Athlon X2 235 2.7GHz with 2MB total cache on the AM3 socket
