AMD has Phenom II Black Edition TWKR in the Works
AMD is reportedly getting ready to unveil yet another processor that will be a delight for overclocking enthusiasts. An addition to the Phenom II range, the Phenom II Black Edition TWKR (an acronym for tweaker) is being checked out by custom PC builder Maingear.
Talking about the custom processor on his blog, Maingear CEO Wallace Santos said that they received the new processor from AMD without any technical details attached. The only distinguishing feature about the Phenom II processor is that it has been numbered 42 and comes packaged in a sexy black box (as shown in the image here courtesy of Maingear) to set it apart from other Phenom II Black Edition versions.
The new processor version is another in the line of Phenom II Black Edition ones that AMD has released over the past several months. Each of these is aimed at providing enthusiasts with an overclock ready processor which they can tweak to extreme levels for enhanced performance.
The new Phenom II Black Edition TWKR however, is reportedly designed to take the clock higher than before. According to the information from Maingear, the parts used in this X4 model have overclocking abilities way beyond those of the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition model, which is the current favourite among enthusiasts for tweaking.
Along with technical and performance specifications, it now remains to be seen whether AMD directly integrates the TWKR into select computer systems or releases it as a standalone part.
Looks like there are exciting times ahead for enthusiasts!
