AMDs Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition

Donanimhaber.com managed to get their hands on AMDs Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition CPU which is also known as the fastest dual-core Kuma 65nm processor. The Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition works at 2.7GHz and has 1MB of L2 cache, 2MB of L3 cache and an unlocked multiplier.

According to the results over at Donanimhaber, the clock on the fastest Kuma is enough to beat Intels Core 2 Duo E6420. The E6420 works at 2.13GHz and has 4MB of L2 cache. Despite the slower clock speed, the E6420 is more expensive than the Athlon X2 6500, so far the only listed Kuma based AMD processor in Europe, which retails at around €100 and works at 2.3GHz. Intels E6420 is currently listed at around €150.

The good news is that these guys managed to easily overclock the Athlon X2 7750 from 2.7GHz to 3.4GHz. At 3.1GHz, this Kuma easily outperforms Intels E8200 and in some cases even the E8400 which is clocked at 3.0GHz.
