Like the superheroes of old, the AMD Phenom II X4 955 streaks out of the night to lay waste to your enemies with four 3.2GHz cores that have dedicated L1 and L2 caches for each , and 6MB of shared L3 cache to handle really heavy loads or large data sets.

Memory transfers get faster than ever. HyperTransport Generation 3.0 mode allows up to 16.0GB/s of bandwidth. Up to 17.1GB/s memory bandwidth for DDR2 and up to 21GB/s memory bandwidth for DDR3 memory controller delivers an amazing total of 37GB/s of processor-to-system bandwidth. This unprecedented bandwidth is needed to feed the data hungry AMD64 with Direct Connect Architecture cores.

You'd think that all of this power would be too hot to handle. Think again. AMD's Cool'n'Quiet 3.0 works with CoolCore Technology to minimize heat while keeping power and efficiency up. Now the cores can shut down unused parts of the processor when not in use. This saves power and helps to reduce the amount of heat generated. This function is built in so there's no need for drivers or BIOS updates.

  • newegg AMD64 Quad-core Technology AMD64 is designed to enable simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing with no degradation in performance. With Quad-core technology, four complete processor cores on a single die run at the same frequency to deliver exceptional multi-tasking power, allowing users to surge through the most demanding processing loads, including advanced multitasking, critical business productivity, complicated visual design and modeling, serious gaming, and visually stunning digital media and entertainment.
  • newegg HyperTransport 3.0 Technology HyperTransport 3.0 Technology (HT 3.0) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link designed to increase communication speeds between integrated circuits in computers, servers, embedded systems, and networking and telecommunications equipment. With HT 3.0 technology the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Quad-Core processor enjoys 3200MHz system bus speeds.
  • newegg AMD Virtualization Virtualization on desktop computers allows a single PC to act like multiple virtual machines. AMD Virtualization can enable client computers to seamlessly support multiple operating environments. And it also helps make it easier for PC enthusiasts to upgrade and maintain their PCs through emulation.
  • newegg AMD CoolCore Technology AMD CoolCore Technology reduces processor energy consumption by turning off unused parts of the processor. Power can be switched on or off within a single clock cycle so that energy is saved without compromising performance.
  • newegg AMD Cool'n'Quiet 3.0 Technology AMD's Cool'n'Quiet 3.0 technology is an enhanced solution available on AMD Phenom II X4 processor-based systems that can effectively lower power consumption and enable a quieter-running system while delivering performance-on-demand.
  • newegg Integrated DDR2 and DDR3 DRAM Memory Controller The AMD Phenom II X4 Quad-Core processor is integrated with DDR2 and DDR3 DRAM memory controller capable of supporting registered and ECC DRAM. The integrated memory controller changes the way the processor accesses main memory, resulting in increased bandwidth, reduced memory latencies, and enhanced processor performance.

5 out of 5 eggs4 years and still running flawlessly

Pros: It's been almost 4 years already and I must say the reliability on this CPU is far superior. I know that this will never be sold again, but just wanted to throw this out there after I've been contemplating about building a new rig. This would be a wonderful hand-me-down for my kids.

Cons: None whatsoever- never had a con

5 out of 5 eggsmike&ike

Pros: over 2 yrs. clocked @ 3.85 no issues. runs smooth. im not a gamer .But push it nonetheless, its my a/v system. 4 hd 3.8 terabytes. run aver card, watch tv, run my blackjack app, and go online, load apps, etc at the same time. .can watch 2 channels at same time. plus all of the above.. never had a stability issue even at 90% usage. It was a bargain @ 139. mobo msi dka790gx plat. 8 gig mem, 450 graphics, aver c027 card, lots of fans.i regret not putting a water cooler, but runs as high as 137F.

Cons: none so far. just one thing really not a con, for aver card to run you must disable C1e and quiet and cool its an amd issue. would not have figured it out if it wasn't for amd support

5 out of 5 eggsStill up to the task

Pros: Still handling games today! I'm glad I bought this CPU back in 2009, it was served me well. Had an arctic freezer pro on it until this year when I got a Hyper 212 EVO. Despite it being a 125W beast, it doesn't run any hotter than 42C under full load.

Cons: It's sad that the product has been discontinued, but there's better processors out there at 95W anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic CPU! Does such a great job at standard clock speeds!

Pros: This thing is just doing an impressive job with my at the moment budget build! it plays Crysis2, GTA IV, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Saints Row The Third, and a bunch of other games in nearly max settings! Had I had faster ram and a beefy graphics card I could sing many praises, but even without all of that it does an impressive job. Imagine if I over clocked it!

Cons: Cannot think of a darn thing bad to say about this processor! Why would they discontinue such a great product? :(

Other Thoughts: My budget rig that will soon be a mega beast:

MOBO msi 970a-46
geforce gt 630 1gb ddr3
8gb ram
500gb hdd
raidmax z1000 case
