Re: AMD Athlon X2 7750 and 5050e Dual-Core Processor Review

Thought I'd point this out before I forget about it. Still reading/skimming the review. To compare the Athlon X2 7750 to something recent on the dual-core front we will be looking at the Athlon X2 5050e as well. On October 21st, 2008, AMD launched the Athlon 64 X2 5050e processor, which is based on...
