What do y'all think about the new Phenom Black? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
The newer b3 Phenom's stepping is OCing good.
A lot to do with making the choice depends on what you own now that can carry over to the new system.

I got the phenom. Hopefully I get the best stepping for OCing since I haven't been lucky in the past. Newegg, don't fail me!

Edit: Yep, I did. This is an old article, but it explains that AMD renamed the chips 9x50 if they have the better stepping.

Just late last month AMD was finally ready to ship the B3 stepping Phenom CPUs which are meant to solve all their problems, or at least those concerning the TLB errata. In order to avoid confusion between the old and new stepping models, AMD has altered their naming scheme, which is a welcomed decision, this includes the Phenom X4 9550 (2.2GHz), 9650 (2.3GHz), 9750 (2.4GHz) and the 9850 (2.5GHz).

In terms of performance, AMD has stated that the new B3 processors will be no faster than the original Phenom X4 CPUs without the TLB erratum fix enabled on a clock-for-clock basis. Therefore the Phenom X4 9600 and the new Phenom X4 9650, for example, should be no different in terms of performance. Just as well that should mean that today’s flagship Phenom, the X4 9850, should sit somewhere between the Phenom 9700 and 9900 processors that we reviewed earlier this year.

For BEs and they only mentioned a single, yet unreleased CPU. Nobody has confirmed anything yet.
