Budget Overclocker - AMD's Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition

Comparing Prices

At the moment, the Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition is not yet listed in any European online shops. We expect it to pop up any day, though.

5000+ Black Edition

According to AMD, online shops should have the processors in stock by the end of October for around €125. However, we expect prices to be no higher than €110, based on the current exchange rate for the US Dollar. The Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Black Edition is already available in the US for €129.99. Our past experience has shown that this is a good indicator for the European market.

A look at current prices for AMD and Intel processors:

5000+ Black Edition

We can see that the 5000+ Black Edition will cost about €30 less than the E6550. The unlocked multiplier comes with a mark-up of about €14 compared to the standard 5000+, which is also available using the G2 stepping.

    I usually don't make accounts like this. But for this review I really had to.

    TERRIBLE REVIEW, just awful. Very poorly written (several numerical mistakes) and very misleading.

    Who compares a stock E6550 to a X2 5000+ with a 1.0Ghz OC advantage?
    Worst of all, do you ever mention the E6550 is at stock? No...

    Bert, Bert, Bert...
    Don't tase my comparative analysis, bro!
