AMD Phenom X4 9650
Released March, 2008
The Pros:First native quad-core processor design. Affordable prices. Compatible with pre-existing AM2 motherboards.
The Cons:No longer suffers from the TLB bug that plagued first generation Phenom processors. 95W TDP with relatively slow 2.3GHz cores. 2.3GHz per core is too slow for demanding single threaded applications.
The AMD Phenom X4 9650 is the predecessor to the earlier 9600. Based on the B3 core revision that eliminates the detrimental TLB bug that plagued the earlier line the 9650 is identical to the model it replaced in every other way.
