I've been using Intel processors in all my main machines for the past few years but I might have to try out some AMD ones here again. It wasn't too long ago that all my machines were exclusively AMD. Today AMD has three new processors to try out. First up is the Black Edition Phenom X3 8750
. It's a triple core processor with Clock Multipler Control and tunable performance. The Black Editions' multiplier are unlocked so you can push them as much as you want without having to do anything to the CPU beforehand.
Two other energy efficient triple core processors, AMD Phenom X3 8450e
and the AMD Phenom X3 8250e
operate at 65watts. These two will be beneficial to those looking to save on some of their energy bills yet garner good computational performance.
