AMD Confirms Five New Phenom II Processors

AMD Press ReleaseAMD 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.

Leslie Sobon, Vice President of product marketing for AMD said :

“Whether buying a new desktop PC or upgrading components in an existing system, AMD recognises consumers are looking for value more than ever before. With the combination of the infrastructure compatibility and the introduction of the AMD Phenom II triple-core processors, AMD has made two very strategic design decisions that our competitor cannot duplicate at the component or platform level.”

Those five new chips are :

* AMD Phenom™ II X4 910 - (2.6GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 - (2.6GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X4 805 - (2.5GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X3 720 Black Edition - (2.8GHz)
* AMD Phenom™ II X3 710 - (2.6GHz)

The new Phenom IIs are available immediately.

New order is being dispatched...woot. just a thought, but could I set up a RAID 1 array using the primary drive in its installed windows state, then tell it to rebuild the array onto the new drive?

Reccommend Acronis as well. You can get it free here. Be quick though they run these offers every so often and I just remembered seeing it on another forum :)

Also if you want to RMA your drive to Rexo (UK) they do fast RMA's (Samsungs only). I've had my RMA'ed drive back in 3 days and I've read of others who've had the same experience. If you're going to go through the retailer then thats also a good option but it's good to remember the link so you can use it after your 12 month retailer warranty is gone.

Thanks for the help, but both of those links are broken :(. I've downloaded acronis (free) so now just gotta wait for the new disk to come (on sat). Also, my drive is OEM (no fancy box, just the drive) so Rexo can't help. But rep for that, really happy with the help provided

Whaaat

Both links are still working for me :crazy:

Hmm my drives are OEM too I'll put my serial numbers in and see if anything amazing pops up.

Okay I put in my OEM drives serial numbers and guess what :D
Warranteeeeeeeeedddd till April 2011, and if I remember right I had an argument with Scan about them in March 08 (when I bought them) so that makes it 3 years warranty!

So have faith in your oem drive.

My drives are in the pic below and are sitting on the plastic containers they came in, so no fancy stuff either and I have a feeling yours might be the same (in warranty) :)

Yup working now for me...double thanks! Even better, looks like the warrantees are valid...don't have the box, so I'll look out some antistatic wrapping and a cardboard box
