AMD finally release four 9x50 Phenoms

Today AMD finally release the four new B3 9X50 Phenoms, each one being a quad core, the slowest of which has a speed of 2.3Ghz a cache of 2Mb and a TDP of 95watts. The new B3s are totally bug free so you can forget the old TLB bug.

It will cost around £170. As I said in an older article about there being a Phenom 9550 which replaced the 9500 this is not happening anymore and so if you want 2.2ghz you will have to grab yourself a buggy 9500.

The second B3 will be the Phenom 9750 which has a speed of 2.4ghz this comes in two version the 125watt TDP and the 95watt TDP. Both of which are priced exactly the same at around £170 again. This doesn't make much sense at this is the same as the lower spec 9650.

Finally the best of them all the 9850 black edition running at 2.5Ghz and a TDP of about 125watts with 4000Mhz HyperTransport. This is the best value chip and will be on sale for £185 which is an outstanding price and if you are aiming for a Phenom this looks like the one to get.
All prices are the RRP from AMD. AMD's price list can be found here.

I've had this self same problem a couple of times and it was Windows that was dead.

Have you tried booting from your Windows disk and repairing the installation?

On mine, it was NTLDR that was gone but I got no message (Asus P5K Premium mobo and Samsung SP250 HDD).

Oh, I've forgot about this thread. :P Nope, it was just me doing an ├╝bernoobish mistake. I planned on clearing the CMOS when it happened, but I got caught up with something else, and the next day I thought I had done it. So I was in panic, while I never tried clearing it, so when I finally did it, everything was back to normal. :P

Yeah, can't argue with that, but the fact that I didn't do it at first really made me feel like a moron. :P All this fuzz with taking out the harddrive and testing it in my other computer, for nothing (well, with the exeption of a fresh new BIOS and some new copied stuff to my old PC). :P

We`ve all been there - and no doubt will be there again.

Btw, I updated the BIOS for 0802 to 1001. See signature for specs.

Stick with 0802 BIOS with this board - it's the most stable.

I remember that day when me seagate barracuda died, that terrible noise (like a spring being shot across the room) and then the silence from a non working computer. All of this the day it was meant to be sold. lmfao

Hope you find the problem. Im just about to send my motherboard off for RMA as its decided to not work correctly so im in the same boat.

How is your warranty looking? any chance of getting a new one sent to you for free??

^^ he found the problem, he had not reset the CMOS.

Although, I'd RMA the disk in a heartbeat, just to get it swapped for a WD. ;)
