When ever I see a Fed-Ex truck I instinctively run outside. The rules are simple: If there’s nothing for me, there’s going to be trouble.

There was no need for trouble this time. He handed me a package containing the Black Edition CPU from AMD.

It’s a beast. Here are the specs:

  • AMD X2 (Dual Core) 6400+ @ 3.2 GHz
  • 2 MB L2 Cache (1 MB per core)
  • 28 KB of L2 cache (64k per core)
  • Maximum temperature: 55 – 63 degrees C
  • HyperTransport speed is up to 2 GHz
  • Socket AM2
  • Unlocked Multiplier

It’s fast. That could have been the end of the article but I’ll give you a little more.
