AMD Phenom B3 set to be 9X50

"Adding a "50" onto Phenom to show that TLB is gone"

Search News

  • Scrolling Image
To determine the bugged from the not-so-bugged, AMD is changing the name of their bug-less B3 stepping Phenom to add a "50" to it
This means people will be able to distinguish a CPU with the TLB bug from one without it. The clocks are the same, but the numbers are a little different.
Hopefully we'll also see some higher clocked versions while their at it!
