It’s been a long time coming, but AMD is finally going to add to the tri-core line-up (which is nothing but Phenom II X4 with one core disabled).

The new product in question is Phenom II X3 740 – running at 3.0 GHz, with a total of 1.5 MB L2 + 6MB L3 cache.


It’s been a long time coming, but AMD is finally going to add to the
tri-core line-up (which is nothing but Phenom II X4 with one core
disabled).

The new product in question is Phenom II X3 740 -
running at 3.0 GHz, with a total of 1.5 MB L2 + 6MB L3 cache.

It is unknown whether this will be a Black Edition CPU like it’s
predecessor (the 2.8 GHz 720BE).

The 720BE has been a hot seller thanks to it’s affordability (US$119),
overclockability and if you are lucky – unlocking the disabled core to the BIOS.

It is expected to launch some time in September.
