Default Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition

We have seen one week ago the amazing performance of the new AMD Phenom II X4 955 which was clocked at 3.2GHz. It beat the Intel Core 2 Quad architecture most of the time and in many cases it was able to outperform the lower-end Core i7 920. Considering the performance and the amazing price tag, I have seen debates on whether the X4 955 is a mid-range or high-end processor. I would classify it more as high-end, however What seemed to make unanimity though is that the Phenom II X3 710 and 720 belong to the mid-range.

But what does AMD offer in the lower-end market? The Athlon series has been present on the market since a long time ago, ten years to be exact. At the same time this year, Advanced Micro Devices reaches its 40 years of existence. That is definitely something to celebrate. To do so, it launches a new processor: The Athlon X2 7850. It is based on the 65nm K10 architecture codenamed 'Kuma' and comprises 2MB of L3 cache and is clocked at 2.8GHz, making it the fastest Athlon Kuma. Obviously it is a Black Edition so it also features an unlocked multiplier.
