AMD Phenom 9500 processor reviewed

Quote:
Throughout last year, we ran a steady stream of news about the AMD’s Phenom quad-core processor, mainly because the chip was delayed. When the launch finally took place, AMD took us to Warsaw where we were told again and again about the virtues of its Spider platform: a combination of a Phenom processor, a motherboard with an AMD 790 chipset and a pair of ATI Radeon HD 3870 graphics cards.

In many benches the Phenom is just a hair slower than a comparable Quad Core proc. But it still lacks OC ability and costs too much.

Pretty much what we expected: Phenom needs some help.
