AMD X2 7850 processor

AMD has announced the AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition 2.8GHz processor. The 65nm dual-core chip ups the speed of AMD's budget line and, as a Black Edition model, lets owners overclock past the factory settings. The Black Edition processor allows users to select memory controller, HyperTransport, and CPU core frequencies through either Windows software such as OverDrive or through the mainboard's system BIOS.

Also included is 2MB of shared L3 cache to help deliver low-latency access to main memory. The 7850 continues to have a 128-bit memory controller with a 1.8GHz HyperTransport bus and official support for up to PC2 8500 DDR memory. It should be available today with an official price of $70.
