I'm kind of lost here on this CPU...

I have a Phenom X4 9750 that was manufactured in 2006, but weren't these made in 2008? Also, the stepping code doesn't match the CPU code.

Here is what is printed on the CPU:

AMD Phenom




(c) 2006  AMD


What exactly is this thing and why does nothing match up with anything when I look it up on the web? Any help and/or links to info would be awesome. Thanks!

Sounds like someone in the packaging room didn't update the packaging.

If you search the AMD white papers or perhaps do an online search there is official AMD info. on how to read the model and production info. printed on the CPU. Whatever is on the CPU is what it actually is. Some OEM processors were never sold in retail.


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
