AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition Review @ EOC!

EXTREME Overclocking has just posted a review on the AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition Processor!
Before the year ends, AMD has one last little surprise for everyone. The long awaited "Kuma" dual-core processors based on the K10 core (Phenom 65nm) have arrived! These new processors will use the same numbering scheme at the Phenom X4 and X3, becoming the Athlon X2 7000 series.

I wouldn't call it a bad CPU. It outperformed the E5200 in a lot of the benchmarks and it's a lower priced cpu.

Aw they are not at the Egg yet. I'd love to purchase one solely to OC once and then give to my brother for Christmas.

haha bought a 2.6 ghz athlon x2 just yesterday. Great line of CPU's for non-extremists =D. Plenty fast for general computing, and the dual core factor is nice. I'm only now (yesterday) dumping my 3800+ x2 for a Core 2 duo. I'm glad to see the dual core market isn't being neglected.

Yeah, there wasn't a lot of press from AMD on this CPU... It's more of a budget chip for those corporate desktops and average Dell desktop systems. You really can't get a dual-core Intel chip cheaper than the E5200 unless you went with a Celeron. I believe AMD will be releasing a couple lower speed chips based on this model (like a 2.5 GHz?) obviously priced much cheaper.

I was kind of surprised how well it OCed for such minimal effort. I mean, it's no 45nm Intel, but it's still not too shabby. It's a great chip for an upgrade to an existing system.

I think it's going to be a great mainstream chip.

I think that, if released a few months ago, that it would have been a great mainstream chip. However, I believe that with Deneb coming in early January, this chip isn't going to do as well as it could have if released in October.

I do think that it provides a great budget option for people looking to upgrade their systems and for those that have been waiting for a good budget chip to come out before doing a total system upgrade.

Oh man this is the best Athlon they've made yet obviously. Kinda nice to see the price low and the clocks are good.

Even better yet is it will allow those with 1067 Ram and a Brisbane to up grade cheaply and gain some performance from the native 1067 and the rest of the system as well.

I think it was a great step for 65nm duals(for amd). Now the duals can run a much higher HT as well.

Over Clocking. The reviews I've seen, (haven't read all of em') 3.2 ghz with very little effort. Can it Over Clock better than the 9950 Phenom is what I wonder.

how does it compare to the old 6400 x2? i though the 6400x2 was suppost to rival with the E6600. is the X2 7750 better then the x2 6400? and how does the X2 7750 compare with the x4 9950?

It's not a horrible CPU by any means. It might not be up to par in Intel performance to some, but that's not the point. AMD makes great CPUs still. They might not be as good as Intel's latest offerings, but they are not total slugs.

good review, but I'd really like to see it compared to some k8 x2's

yeh so would i. its a good CPU for the price i think and if i get another request for a custome build of a basic system, i will most likely drop on of these in

Unfortunately the only K8 I have is an old Brisbane 4000+, which ain't really even in the same ballpark being 600 MHz slower. I believe Bit-tech reviewed it with a 6000+ & 5200+ for comparison. Obviously the 7750 beat them in *most* tests (the 6000+ is 3.1GHz after all)...

For the "average gamer" this chip would be plenty adequate (especially if OCed)... It would be worth while to invest more in a higher-end video card than to get a quad-core if you want the eye-candy.

The launch of Deneb won't really have much of an impact on this chip. Only the quad core chips are going 45nm at first, and even then it will be *at least* February before we see some AM3 for them. Afterwards then we'll eventually see X3's at 45nm... Then somewhere way, way down the road (and depending on yields) I'm sure X2's will eventually transition.

Additional Comment:

Just updated first post with reviews from other sites...

Im getting great gaming performances from my almost-stock 5000+ BE with crap HD3200 graphics (CoD4 all high except one heavy setting, no AF, 2x AA probably 20-30FPS 800x600 ) but I can easily imagine it'd keep up with some mid-end graphic cards perfectly (4850, probably 4870 but any higher and it'll probably bottleneck)

Makes me want to grab one, but no money

Good benchmarks and as always the unlocked multiplier will let the voltage and clocks soar.

I would like to see how they fair with some good cooling and nice motherboards.

I think they would be a tad better overclockers than the Quads they are based on Obviously due to a little less heat.

Well, stock clocks the 6400 is a little better, but the 7750 OCes better, and is better clock for clock.
