AMD have extended the lifespan of its Dragon platform by announcing five new Phenom II processors. Three of these new processors will be the Phenom II X4 Quad-cores, whilst the other two are the industries first 45nm triple-cores, the Phenom II X3s.
Compatible with both AM2+ and AM3 socket motherboards, and both DDR2 and DDR3, continuing to enhance the value of the AMD Dragon platform to OEM partners and the home build enthusiasts.
Providing a large boost over the previous Phenom processors, these new Phenom IIs deliver a fantastic experience at a mainstream price point. This helps eliminate the substantial cost involved in competing platforms which are forcing users to upgrade to DDR3.

* AMD Phenom™ II X4 910 - (2.6GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 - (2.6GHz)

* AMD Phenom™ II X3 720 Black Edition - (2.8GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X3 710 - (2.6GHz)
