Today marks the launch of the newest high-end Black Edition CPU from AMD. The new CPU is called the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition and it is multiplier unlocked for overclocking.

The CPU runs at 3.4GHz and will sell for $245 making it a raging bargain. This may well be the perfect CPU for a budget gaming rig or a multimedia computer offering lots of performance for the money.

Review Excerpt: "After all is said and done I came away from the Phenom II X4 965 BE with a healthy respect for AMD and its high-end parts. Sure, AMD has ceded the mega high-end market to Intel with it's over $1000 top-of-the line parts. The high-end Intel parts are vastly higher performance than the 965B BE we are looking at today. Where the Phenom II X4 965 BE really shines is in bang for your buck, and believe me the Phenom II X4 965 BE is shiny enough that you could go blind. If you are looking for a great performing quad core CPU that can overclock and is aimed at enthusiasts on a budget, AMD has your CPU." Read the full Phenom II X4 965 review here.
