Phenom II X4 965 to Launch on Aug. 13

AMD's timely update to its high-end desktop processor lineup is on course for August 13. The Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (PIB model: HDZ965FBGIBOX or HDZ965FBK4DGI) is a quad-core socket AM3 processor that comes with a clock speed of 3.40 GHz, and an unlocked bus multiplier like other Black Edition series models. It is reported by Brightside of News that the NDA over the chip will be lifted on August 13, letting reviewers publish reviews. Retail availability can be expected shortly afterwards.

According to Expreview.com, the chip was listed on Technologic, an online store, for 178.97 GBP. It gives us a glimpse of what the pricing could look like. Like its predecessors 955 BE and 940 BE, the 965 BE could start off at around US $270 or $250. At 3.40 GHz, the 965 BE will be AMD's fastest processor in terms of default clock speed. Phenom II X4 955 BE and Athlon64 X2 6400+ BE hold the 3.20 GHz spot currently.

Nice. Supposedly the chip will maintain a 125 watt TDP like the PII X4 955BE as well, but that price is too high (enters i7 920 range).

What are they advantages to buying this chip over a PII X4 955BE? Will it OC clock higher?

If it indeed does 3,4@same volts as the 955 and is still at 125W, the supposedly it will be a higher yield/ lower leakage and perform a bit better when OC-ed. We'll have to wait and see

Imagine running a X2 550 :cry: Oh well, I've already saved $100 bucks in two weeks by not smoking so I guess I'll be going for this 965BE.

She can do more than that just by sitting in front of it, in the same way she is doing in that pic :respect:

Come to think of it, she could probably turn an i7 into jelly
