The new platform that will be designed for the Phenom II is called the Dragon Platform. The Dragon Platform creates a basis for the hardware to work in harmony for the best overall system performance possible. Like the past Spider Platform built around the original Phenom, the Dragon Platform consists of three parts of hardware. The first part of hardware is of'course the processor which is the AMD Phenom II X4. Secondly is the body of the platform which is a 790GX motherboard. Lastly is the video side of the platform, which is an HD 4800 series video card such as the HD 4850 or HD 4870 card. All three pieces of hardware are designed to work in harmony for better performance.
Here is a shot of the AMD Phenom II X4 940 coupled with a 790GX based board and an ATI HD 4850 video card to complete the new Dragon Platform.
Now that everything is placed together in sync, let's move on to the testing phase.
