Final Thoughts

 

Phenom II is growing in numbers with AMD still having no end in sight for the K10 architecture. While Phenom II is not the juggernaut that the market had really hoped for, K10 does have its place as an alternative to a high priced Intel processor. Quad core is definitely beyond the average users.

 

As the latest addition to the AMD line-up in the Black Edition family, the 955 processor is extremely impressive. Currently at $199.99 with free shipping over at Newegg, without a huge price tag this processor is ideal for users who want to tweak and overclock their systems without having to clock buses. With unlocked multipliers this processor has enough to keep everyone happy.
