B3 Phenom arrives in Damage Labs

Just arrived in Damage Labs: our first B3 Phenom, the new silicon revision with the fix for the TLB erratum.

This isn’t just an early engineering sample, either; it’s a sample of a new Phenom model that should be available soon.  And get this: clock speeds are higher than current Phenoms.  Could things be looking up for AMD?  Stay tuned for a full review…  soon.

    Yeah, I’ve eagerly checked the front page every morning for the last 3 days. I don’t know why though – it’s just K10, LOL. No matter what it won’t beat an OC’d Q6600. Stink.

    A review anytime this century would be nice. Yes I’m impatient.

      Hold yer horses. I’m busy overclocking!

        Is it that bad…? ^_^ My 9600 BE over clocked easy with the 1.3 bios from MSI. I hope it is all going well…. You guys do great reviews..

        Looking Forward

          Just turn the settings up and get a quick SuperPi is nothing. Doing the stability tests to make sure the overclock is stable is another matter.

            Mine has never crashed… I haven’t used Prime but the built in AOD test I ran for half a day this week at 2.7 ghz 1.35v core all cores. 2000mhz NB. How long do I need to run it , for it to be proved stable?

            24 hours of AOD and then 24 hours of Prime 95 would have me feeling extremely confident. I usually just settle for 8 hours of Prime 95 but I’m not doing anything mission critical on my rig.

            That, plus at least RTHDRIBL running also. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Any chance of an undervolting test?

          seconded!

          Then more people will be bitching since they can’t seem to wait for the good stuff…

    it’s comical, since I read of the arrival of the B3’s I’ve been debating going back to AMD even though by all measure they will still be slower than C2Q……. all of a sudden I’ve got 780 on my mind and a Phenom quad core……..

    this when in reality I have 8800 GT’s SLI’d in my main rig….. hardware upgrade addiction…. you are a merciless animal.

    I have been waiting all weekend….Bah.. LOL .. Can we have a lil hint when to expect this review?

      If this guy (http://www.techreport.com/discussions.x/14392) is to be believed, then you probably only have 48 hours left in your wait. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Looks like that guy had some bad info. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Get past 3ghz, then we’ll talk, AMD.

    This may be nice as a wallpaper. Have the high res version lying around for the gallery? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I really hope AMD have got it right this time!

    Ha, Damage this is just plain mean ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyways, I’m pumped for the article, and as a current X2 owner extremely curious about the performance.

    Can we just get a little taste??? Maybe a quick Crysis benchie while OC’d???

    • fpsduck
    • 12 years ago

    From the picture, I just wonder when AMD will make pinless CPU?

      • Steel
      • 12 years ago

      They do, it’s called the Opteron.

    lol! Since this article isn’t in the latest news section on the right, it’s only there every other refresh of the screen. =P that’s pretty mean guys.

    • dragmor

    Woo probably 2.5ghz

    Almost as fast as the 2.6 samples they provided for the reviews during the launch.

    Teasers! I thought this was a review ๐Ÿ™
