X2 5000 black thumb Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition Tested

4Gamers has done up some quick tests on the Athlon 64 X2 5000+ “Black
Edition” released just over last weekend in Japan. It is based on 65nm Brisbane
core, clocked in at 2.6Ghz at 13x multiplier, 2x512KB L2 cache and 65W TDP. The
good thing is that the multiplier is unlocked so overclocking is made easy. The
tests revealed that the multiplier can be increased to 15x using CrystalCPUID
and the 3DMark06 performance is close to a Athlon 64 X2 6000+ running at 3GHz.
Pricing is at US$ 136.
