Athlon X2 5000+ Black Edition has potential – 3.5GHz
Right, the whole “dark side” thing was a huge let down. We were expecting a Phenom FX, and even toyed with the 4×4 idea. The unlocked 5000+ may be short of an overclockers dream, but if the early results are anything to go by, it has some potential. Chinese overclocker “Druid-su” has pushed his sample effortlessly to 3520 MHz (16×220) on an ASUS M2N32-SLi Deluxe, remembering 2.6GHz is stock.
