AMD debuted Phenom II as their first 45nm retail part in the beginning of 2009. Since then, many have claimed the Phenom II to be AMD’s ticket back into the high-end desktop processor market. Shortly after these AM2+ parts came the AM3 refresh. The AM3 platform brought mainly one benefit that AMD was previously lacking; DDR3 Memory support. Not only that, but the AM3 nodes tend to overclock higher, which was important to enthusiasts. In this AM3 refresh, the Triple Core CPU’s came first: the X3 710 and the X3 720BE. These processors proved themselves to be excellent competitors to the Intel counterpart.

Ran a few benchies on the new chip at frequencies ranging from 3.9GHz-4GHz.
