At nearly five years of age the AMD Phenom II X4 965 has been included in the CPU group test primarily as a reference. This hugely successful CPU from AMD has been one of the most popular gaming PC's of all time. With superb Single threaded, and therefore real-world performance, the X4 was able to compete with Intel's first generation of Core chips in terms of raw processing power and it did so at a lower price point. Today of course the X4 processor has been far surpassed by Intel's third and fourth generation Core processors. [Feb '12 CPUPro]
