Front view of AMD Phenom X4 9950

Reasons to consider the
AMD Phenom X4 9950

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 85% higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 2 MB vs 1 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.11 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Newer Jul, 2008 vs Feb, 2004 Release date over 4 years later
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.37 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 2.5x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
