While we were at CES 2010 we had a chance to sit down with some representatives from AMD and have a little chat. After said chat we where excited to hear that we would be receiving some product for review. A few weeks later and to our surprise we received the AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition. To start with we shocked that we were given their top of the line CPU only to be topped by being given an unlocked black edition. To put it simply we had some fun with this chip. I went and bought a new mother board and video card just to do the tests, thankfully Crucial provided the RAM. Anyways enough talk, let’s take a closer look at what this thing can do:
