Phenom 9600 Black Edition

AMD has begun shipping OEM units of the Phenom 9600 Black Edition, a special version of the company's flagship quad-core processor. Like the regular CPU, each Black Edition is rated at 2.3GHz, with a 3.6GHz HyperTransport bus and 2MB L2 and L3 caches. The difference is that the Black Edition is effectively "unlocked," ready for overclocking past 2.3GHz without having to adjust power ratings. The thermal design power (TDP) of the chip is normally 95W. System builders should be able to pick up a Black Edition for approximately $283. [via Impress Watch]
