Default AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition Review

Stars (K10) microarchitecture employed in Phenom X3 and X4 processors has finally made it to dual-core CPUs. So, the new Athlon X2 got all the advantages of their elder brothers including shared L3 cache. Nevertheless, these intriguing newcomers will hardly be able to fix AMD’s current market standing. Our today’s article will reveal why.

It feels like a strange time of year to be releasing a new CPU - a bit too close to Christmas when everyone is winding up for the year here in the UK. That's not a complaint though, because this is AMD's first Athlon dual core refresh for a while.

AMD's converted many of its Athlon X2s to 65nm nearly two years ago after it launched the 5000+ 'Brisbane' processor on its "Energy Efficient" 65nm process. These have been extended throughout the year, quietly replacing the old 90nm dual cores and even including new releases like the fantastic 45W 4850e as well.

AMD's new 'Kuma' core is also based on the same 65nm SOI (Silicon on Insulator) process, but it's now K10 cored just like the Phenoms. Keep reading, because I promise this is actually a good thing, at least in theory.

What the current Phenoms lack is clock speed and thermal overhead - four cores suck up all the available TDP and prevent high retail clocks and ludicrous overclocking that Intel's Core 2 Quads could achieve. While it does perform well (for its price) in a specifically multi-threading environment, not everyone cares for quad core and games for the most part still benefit from MHz, MHz and more MHz.
