AMD Phenom II X4 910e 2.6GHz 65W TDP Processor Review

AMD Phenom II X4 910e 2.6GHz 65W TDP Processor Review

The AMD Phenom II X4 910e is an interesting 2.6GHz quad-core processor due to the fact that the chip features a 65W max TDP. This means you have a full-featured Phenom II quad core CPU for compute needs, but it also fits the bill for PCs built with lower power consumption, heat and noise in mind. Read on to see how the 910e performs.

The AMD Phenom II 910e is a Quad-core processor that features the Deneb core. The predecessor to the Phenom II 910e was the 905e. The Phenom II 905e had the same bus speed as the Phenom II 910e has but the multiplier was x12.5 while the Phenom II 910e has a x13 multiplier. That small bump in the multiplier is what accounts for the 100MHz difference in the two processors. That means that the AMD Phenom II X4 910e has a final clock frequency of 2.6GHz with 2MB of L2 and 6MB of L3 cache. Not bad specifications for a processor that has a TDP that is nearly half the Wattage used on other popular Phenom II X4 processors!

Not exactly important for the review, but if you are looking for energy efficient processor - might be. You did not include some energy efficient Athlon II processors in the table.
dual core - 235e (2,7GHz), 240e (2,8GHz); triple core - 400e (2,2GHz), 405e (2,3GHz); quad core - 600e (2,2GHz), 605e (2,3GHz) ((all 45W TDP))

with a SB600? Like back from the 790FX days or circa 2008?

We try to keep the test platforms up to date so the performance numbers still mean something one or two years down the road. If we use 2008 motherboards in 2010 for testing these reviews won't mean much in 2011 any beyond.

Wow, pretty big difference on the load wattage and temps.

Thanks for the review!

Yeah I had to double check the temps to verify. I was blown away by them. The Phenom II 910e was less than half of what the 940 was!

What are the wattages for the non-over volt overclocking? Or, what is the wattage of a 3GHz Phemon II running at -e voltages?

I believe I was pulling around 160Watts under load when It was overclocked but not over-volted.

Just double checked and I was pulling 160 watts at the wall and a temp of 40 degrees.
