XtremeSystems has a new AMD Engineering Sample on the bench and despite that they have said all they know is that it is simply an ES chip, The Tech Report says it is the upcomming Phenom II X4 955 processor.

Whatever the chip ends up being named officially, it runs at a stock speed of 3.2 GHz at 1.25V. XtremeSystems didn't waste much time and got right down to business with the chip, overclocking it to 4GHz on air with a minor voltage adjustment.

 

If the rumors hold true that AMD did in fact cancel the Phenom II X4 950 because of better than expected yields, then this very well could be the 955 that many are hoping for.
