AMD improves the Dragon platform with AMD Phenon II X4 processor
AMD has announced a platform refresh for Dragon platform technology, including the new AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor (pictured).

As AMD’s fastest quad-core processor, it is aimed at gamers, enthusiasts and do-it-yourselfers. The new processor provides high performance, high-speed DDR3 memory support and AMD OverDrive 3.0 technology, giving users more control over their computing experience.

The Dragon technology refresh consists of the new AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor, AMD 7-Series chipsets and ATI Radeon HD 4890 graphics.

With this platform refresh, AMD is combining its fastest processor with the massive graphics processing muscle of its most powerful GPU to deliver high definition video entertainment and “beyond HD” resolutions.

Running at a frequency of 3.2 GHz, the new AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition processor can be used with the new AMD OverDrive 3.0 software to provide some specific benefits:

- AMD Black Edition Memory Profile lets users create custom profiles that can easily overclock known DDR3 memory to quickly and easily achieve optimum high speed DDR3 performance.

- AMD Smart Profiles can automatically tune performance for specific applications, whether for max performance or quiet operation. Choose from pre-defined application profiles or create your own to personalize the experience.

Socket AM3 processors, such as the latest AMD Phenom II CPUs, are backwards compatible with existing AM2+ platforms running DDR2 memory, and can also transition to AM3 motherboards that support DDR3 memory.
