Check out these quotes from AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition reviews & previews
"Throughout our benchmarks today, the 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965 consistently topped the charts. Compared to the previous 3.2 GHz X4 955 flagship model, the extra 200 MHz led to an average performance increase of roughly 6%, making it the fastest Phenom II to date. It also put up a decent fight against Intel's Q9450, pulling ahead in nearly every benchmark."
"The Phenom 2 X4 965 BE, with it's clock speed of 3.4 GHz, the fastest frequency Quad out of the box, has great performance, platform wise a great value, and it's unlocked multiplier makes it a snap to overclock so it scores a 9 out of 10 and the Golden Bear Award."
"Quite simply, it's the new king of the hill in terms of AMD CPU performance, and that in turn makes it a fast CPU in its own right. It might not have quite enough grunt to claim absolute superiority over Intel's leading-edge architecture, but it runs it close, and that in itself is an impressive feat. Add in that temptingly unlocked multiplier, and the benefits of AMD's Dragon platform as a whole (which you may well be seeing in the form of some nicely priced bundles following today's launch - keep your eyes peeled), and there are still plenty of perfectly good reasons to consider going the Phenom II route. If you do decide that the Phenom II is the way forward for you, then you won't find anything faster out of the box than this."
"In the end, the release of the Phenom II X4 965 is a good thing for AMD. It shows that they are able to push their silicon pretty far to put out a decent performing product. The price of that product also deserves praise, as many budget minded games will be looking towards AMD for their gaming systems."
"Progress is what it is all about and AMD has certainly been making a lot of it in the last year or so, we feel the Phenom II X4 965BE is a truly lovely and fast quad-core processor for the budget minded overclockers and PC enthusiasts, you'll absolutely like what it brings to the table. It's a product that makes a lot of sense and as such comes very much recommended."
