AMD announces triple core Phenom processors


amd_logo.gifYes, I know that we’re already looking at quad core processors and beyond, but AMD hopes that its Phenom triple core offering will encourage the mainstream adoption of processors more powerful than the popular dual core chips, without breaking the bank.

The new Phenom X3 models include the 2.1GHz 8400, 2.3GHz 8600, 2.1GHz 8450, 2.3GHz 8650, and 2.4GHz 8750, arriving over the coming months.

Quad core isn’t evil, though, with AMD also announcing quad core Phenom processors.

Wow, new processors and power surge protection in one day — we’re spoiling you.
