AMD Starts Selling Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition, Energy-Efficient Phenom X4 9350e/9150e

These days AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition and energy-efficient Phenom X4 9350e/9150e processors went on sale in certain regions (Japan, in particular).

Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition is a quad-core 940-pin Socket AM2+ CPU operating at 2.6 GHz. It supports 4GHz HyperTransport bus, 1.05-1.30 V voltages, features 140W TDP (or 125W, according to some sources). The processor comes bundled with OverDrive overclocking utility. Some observers have already tested the novelty at 1.45 V obtaining 3.1 GHz clock rate at the moderate 58 degrees Celsius.

Phenom X4 9350e and Phenom X4 9150e are energy-efficient 65W TDP processors. Phenom X4 9350e operates at 2.0 GHz, features 3.6 GHz HyperTransport bus and supports 1.05-1.125 V voltage. Phenom X4 9150e works at 1.8 GHz, features 3.2 GHz HyperTransport bus and supports 1.05-1.15 V voltage. Both have 4 x 512 KB L2 cache.

In over 1,000-unit quantities Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition costs 235 USD, Phenom X4 9350e costs 195 USD and Phenom X4 9150e costs 175 USD.

It's interesting that the company launches these processors almost simultaneously with the release of AMD Radeon HD 4800 graphics card. According to Hector Ruiz, during this 3rd quarter AMD is going to finally become profitable again in terms of manufacture and sales.
