AMD announces new Phenon 4 processors and triple core processors
AMD have announced four new high-performance AMD Phenom X4 processors for PC users now available. Led by the AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition processor, each CPU features true quad-core design, and when matched to AMD 790 series chipsets supports up to four ATI Radeon HD 3800 series graphics cards.

This enthusiast PC platform is codenamed "Spider".

"These new AMD Phenom X4 processors unlock even greater visual computing performance to showcase the unparalleled scalability of the AMD enthusiast platform," said Mario Rivas, executive vice president, computing solutions group, AMD. "Based on AMD's advanced true quad-core architecture, these processors are loaded with powerful performance features like next-generation HyperTransport 3.0 and energy-efficient innovations like Cool'n'Quiet 2.0 technology."

These AMD Phenom X4 quad-core processors can improve performance for gaming and multi-threaded applications, according to the company. The AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition is the top performer in the new line-up, with Clock Multiplier Control for tunable performance that gives gamers and enthusiasts scalability and customizable performance levels to run multiple processor-intensive applications simultaneously.

Customers can implement AMD Phenom X4 processors 9550 (2.2GHz) and 9650 (2.3GHz), or experience an enhanced multi-tasking experience with two higher frequency processors: the AMD Phenom X4 9750 (2.4GHz) and AMD Phenom X4 9850 Black Edition (2.5GHz) processors.

The company also announced the first x86 triple-core processors and chipset support, the new AMD Phenom X3 8000 series processors and AMD 780 chipsets.

When paired with the AMD 780 series chipset, AMD Phenom X3 processors can deliver enhancements in gaming and high-definition experiences for mainstream PC customers. This AMD desktop solution can provide a full HD experience with support for the latest and most demanding formats, including VC-1, MPEG-2 and H.264 on a mainstream PC.

With the AMD Unified Video Decoder (UVD), the solution can process HD playback on the GPU rather than the CPU so consumers may enjoy a smooth HD viewing experience-less lag, stalling and dropped scenes-in the latest Blu-ray titles.

AMD Phenom X3 processor and AMD 780G chipset based desktop PCs offer DirectX 10 game compatibility. Gamers looking to scale their performance with the addition of a discrete graphics card can accelerate their performance with ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology. This technology can harness the graphics power of both an ATI discrete graphics card and the motherboard GPU in tandem, delivering in some applications up to 70 percent improvements in 3D performance.

In addition, the AMD 780G chipset is the second generation AMD chipset to feature AMD OverDrive, a simple user interface that brings performance tuning to end users.

AMD Phenom X3 8400 and AMD Phenom X3 8600 processors can improve performance over dual-core processors on single-threaded applications and can scale with the same applications that scale with quad-core. AMD Phenom triple-core processors can also increase performance for multitasking usage models and multi-threaded applications, aligned with similar benefits available with AMD Phenom X4 quad-core processors.
