Almost a month ago the AMD Phenom II was present in the x86 processor market showing a great potential in relation to previous Phenom generation and of course by the throne of maximum frequency in current processors leaving the Core i7 in this arena.
As we knew from the beginning AMD was prepared for us two versions of the now known Phenom II. One of these versions of the processor that would be the first group known as transitional generation or workhorse has integrated the memory controller which can only handle DDR2 memory.
But tomorrow is DDR3 and AMD knows this so it already has up and running the second installment of Phenom II the Phenom II AM3 which like fellow AM2 + has an integrated memory controller but this time the driver is compatible with DDR2 and DDR3 allowing us to make the transition from memory and motherboard without changing the processor.
The move to integrate a controller with support for DDR2 and DDR3 the low cost of the first modern day insurance upgrades for the future by AMD is fully strategic since in this way delivers a plus that Intel does not can provide at this time in addition to that the performance of the Phenom II is excellent which continues to score points on the board of AMD.
Despite all the benefits of AM3 motherboards support these new processors are completely absent or barely visible before the launch of the processors since the Chinese New Year stop everything until the February 2 and therefore samples motherboards do not come before today a whole tragedy that we know when we have a remedy in our hands AM3 board.
Now we can only invite you to read this new review which has as its protagonists two AM3 Phenom the X4 Phenom 810 and Phenom X3 II 720.
