AMD Phenom II

Maximum PC have a review up for AMD’s latest offering, the Phenom II.

AMD is far more interested in how Phenom II does against a Core 2 Quad. The Phenom II actually outscored the Core 2 Quad in our MainConcept encoding test, our ProShow Producer slideshow creation test, and Quake 4, and it just about broke even in our WinRar file compression test.

Where to get the AMD Phenom II (and other AMD products) in Saudi Arabia? That is the problem. The Saudi market is dominated by Intel and finding a store that sells AMD is problematic. This press release claims that BDL is the distributor but nothing is on their website regarding AMD.

So you can either buy it online or buy from Softland, a well established (since the 90s) computer store that has no website. They are in the Olaya computer market in Riyadh.
