AMD Athlon X2 7750 Review

» Discuss this article (25)


I really wanted to see what this new dual-core processor from AMD could do, so I will be pushing the limits through a series of benchmarks, including scientific and video tests. To show a broad comparison I will be putting it up against a series of other processors, including dual-core and quad-core CPUs, old and new. This will be done so that you know exactly how it performs against other processors on the market, and not just dual-core ones that only gauge direct competition. All hardware will be run at stock speeds, timings and voltages so that there are no outside variables that might interfere with the scores and throw off the comparisons. Just a note, because of a limitation of comparison hardware available and time constraints, the scientific benchmarks will be run on all processors available and the video benchmarks, which are largely CPU dependent, will be run on only a limited number of comparison processors.

Overclocked settings:

Being a "Black Edition" processor gives you a little more flexibility with overclocking because of the unlocked multiplier. To begin I started by raising the multiplier 1x at a time until the system became unstable. I was able to boot at 16x but I could not complete a benchmark, so I backed the multiplier down a half to 15.5x and I was able to complete several test benchmarks with no problem. Next I raised the bus speed 5MHz at a time, but once I tried 210MHz there was no joy. I backed off slowly, 1MHz at a time until I was able to boot at 205Mhz. During the overclocking session I did have to raise the CPU voltage to 1.5v, however CPU-Z reported it as 1.520v. So for the overclocking results we will be running at 3.177GHz (205Mhz x 15.5) at 1.5 volts.
