Introduction:

With CES right around the corner, AMD has decided to release their winter refresh for some of their chips. Today we have their new Black Edition chip in the Deneb core line. For those unfamiliar with the Black Edition line of chips, they feature an unlocked multiplier which allows for super easy overclocking in a sub $200 price range. This new 125 watt quad core comes stock at 3.6GHz, but if you’re anything like us, you won’t settle for stock speeds. Join us as we take a look at the 975 Black Edition, and see just what it can pull off.
