This one slipped through the cracks while we were doing a bit of site re-designing and not getting much sleep. The AMD Phenom X4 955 is based on AMD’s AM3 socket that was revealed some time back, featuring DDR3 support.

When the 955 was released, it was AMD’s flagship CPU running four cores at 3.2GHz but has since been replaced by the 965 that runs at 3.4GHz. Both these CPUs are “Black Edition” meaning they’re multiplier unlocked and overclocking friendly. A 6MB L3 cache is present onboard that has a Northbridge speed of 2.0GHz. Lastly, the TDP is 125W which is a bit higher that we would’ve liked. The following is a CPU-Z screenshot

Lets get on with the benchmarks using our standrad testbed made up of Corsair DDR3-1333 and an nVidia GeForce GTX 280. This CPU was benched on the ASUS CrossHair III motherboard. We’ve compared the 955 to the older 940 by AMD as well as the Core i7 920 and QX9650 CPUs from Intel
