AMD Phenom II X4 810 

Released February, 2009
  • 2.6 GHz
  • Quad core
3.7 Out of 10

On synthetic benchmark tests, the AMD-based system did better, while for photographic work, Intel clearly came out ahead.

Looks like the old overclocking friendly AMD processors are back and it is likely a fair number of AMD enthusaists will be back as well.

Reviews Word on the street for the AMD Phenom II X4 810

The price is right, though.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Running with a 313MHz HT reference clock is impressive, but being limited to 1.65V on the CPU Core and having no multipliers above 13x really hurts overclocking.

The AMD Phenom II X4 810 processor has been floating around the test bench for over a month now and I've maxed it out with after market air coolers at 3.82GHz on the ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard and 3.84GHz on the MSI DKA790GX Platinum motherboard.

Keeping an HT Link of and CPU/NB frequency ~2200MHz the highest I could get into Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit with any stability at all was 4069MHz.

Socket Type

With a new processor installed in the frosty ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard we kept our fingers crossed that something higher than 4.1GHz could be reached.

AMD is shipping its first socket AM3 CPUs, and the memory controller in them can support DDR3 memory.
by PCMag (Feb, 2009)
With the 'overvoltage' jumper enabled the CPU Voltage max went from 1.45V to 1.65V on the Phenom II X4 810 processor, which should help the processor reach a higher overclock than we were able to get on air.

AMD's new CPUs are a bargain, but they're basically entry level.
by PCMag (Feb, 2009)
In game performance, the systems were about even.
by PCMag (Feb, 2009)
AMD's long anticipated move to socket AM3 is finally here, but it disappoints somewhat with reduced cache sizes and clock rates as well as entry-level performance.

That means that we will have to revisit dry ice cooling down the road, but for now we are out of dry ice and have other articles that need to be written!
by Legit Reviews (Feb, 2009)
Since both boards feature different CPU sockets and chipsets it is fairly safe to assume that this is the highest overclock that this processor can get with air cooling.
by Legit Reviews (Feb, 2009)
After the Arctic Silver thermal compound thawed out enough for the pot to be removed there was a layer of ice around all around the CPU socket, but the motherboard was fine even after running with all the ice buildup.

Since we have the processor and have overclocked it so many times before we wanted to see what it could do anyway.
