AMD Phenom X4 9750


$215.00 Released March, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Pretty stable, not terrible for minor overclocking. Does tend to run a little hotter than similar processors. A quad-core for pretty cheap (can usually be found for way less than the MSRP).

The Cons:No heatsink or fan included. Pretty outdated at this point (an Athlon II X4 2.8GHz quad core can be purchased for ~$100, supports DDR3). Not suitable if you're looking to overclock more than 3GHz at most due to heat issues.

Introduced with the rest of the 2008 Phenom line-up, the AMD Phenom X4 9750 brought with it the first step up in clock speed the series had seen. With the last top-of-the-line 9600 set at only 2.3GHz, this step was considered AMD's number one obstacle to become competitive against Intel's offerings.

Sadly, hurtling this obstacle came at a price of energy efficiency and thermal output. With a TDP of 125W, the 9750 has a difficult time of keeping up with even Intel's budget quad core, the 6600, itself with a TDP of only 90W in comparison.
