-------------------------------------------
AMD today introduces the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition, its new quad-core flagship CPU that still uses the aging Deneb CPU architecture. Yet it's AMD fastest stock quad-core yet at 3.7GHz, while retaining at 125W TDP, all for $195 USD. It's similar in price to quite a few dual- and quad-core CPU offerings from rival Intel, so hit our review to see if the new Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition manages to stay competitive at this price range.

Great review Carl!

AMD needs to introduce their Bulldozer processors to the market, their current architecture is getting killed in comparison to Intel's offerings.

Indeed... The current high end phenoms seem to be more of a place holder until they finally reveal the bulldozer series.

On a side note, Bulldozer and the international DNF release dates are on the same day, they both seem to have taken forever. Too much of a coincidence for me hahahaha.
