AMD officially launched the Phenom II series of processors at CES back in January. The first of its desktop CPUs using a 45nm manufacturing process, the processors were based on the AM2+ socket and supported DDR2 memory. At the time AMD also said it would be offering a new AM3 socket processor that would finally offer support for DDR3 memory. Today we get a chance to look at the first of the new AM3 processors being released in both quad- and triple-core models. These processors are also backward compatible with AM2+ boards running DDR2 memory, which offers a flexible upgrade path for current AMD users. The Phenom II X3 720 is a triple-core processor clocked at 2.8GHz with 6MB L3 cache and 1.5MB L2 cache (512KB each core). It is also a Black Edition processor with an unlocked multiplier for potentially higher overclocking room. The Phenom II X4 810 is clocked at 2.6GHz with 4MB total L3 cache and 2MB L2 cache (512KB each core). Both processors will support DDR2 1066MHz and DDR3 1333MHz memory speeds using a 128-bit wide integrated memory controller.
