As we told in the previous installment of the new AMD Phenom II AM3 motherboards were a scarce and precious before D-day so it was not possible to evaluate the performance of the Phenom X3 II II 720 and the Phenom X4 810 with DDR3 memory but today if we bring the rematch by ECS manufacturer friend sent us a sample motherboard under the new socket AM3 ready and willing to 1333MHz for DDR3 memory.
Thanks to this maneuver is that today we bring you a review of comparative Phenom II AM2 + DDR2 Phenom II AM3 with DDR2 and Phenom II AM3 with DDR3 memory, an entire compilation of tests to see how they render the new Phenom II with Best of the Best.
In this review we will see something similar to that seen in the two parts that have to date for Phenom II since the drivers we used on the platforms have not changed in any way and in particular the new video drivers for our Sapphire ATi Radeon HD 4850 X2 did not work under any circumstances, having to use the drivers provided by Sapphire which by the way they behave good sticking out the most of your video card.
In addition to the comparative tests with AMD processors will also have comparisons with Intel platforms to encompass a broader spectrum and see if AMD is on the path to success. That's why you'll see a lot of information in the graphs so you need to pay attention to each of them to keep track of this revision.
As I discussed in the introduction and building on the work we have done a short time ago under the same conditions we will use the results of two previous reviews of Phenom II as the drivers and the hardware is shared by the different platforms. It is just to focus completely on one review with the new AMD Phenom II AM3 with DDR3 memory.
