    Retailers have started shipping AMD's Phenom II X6 series of desktop six-core processors. The Phenom II X6 is AMD's first consumer six-core processor for desktops, which intends to compete with Intel at aggressive price-points. AMD is starting the series with two models, the Phenom II X6 1055T and Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. German retailer VV Computer priced the 1055T under 200€ at 198.7€, while the 1090T Black Edition goes for a little over 300 €, at 309.9€.

    The Phenom II X6 1055T runs at 2.80 GHz, with Turbo Core speed of 3.30 GHz, while the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition runs at 3.20 GHz with 3.60 GHz of Turbo Core speed, and an unlocked bus multiplier to help overclocking. Both chips have 9 MB of total cache, and TDP of 125W.

    they havent properly released yet (in stores, but its damn close) - so no one can really review them just yet. Expect a slew within the next 24 hours.


    I am totally getting once, just that gigabyte havent confirmed if they work on their AM2+ boards yet...

    Wonder if this will make reviews more difficult. Turbo vs turbo mode comparisons as well as the standard locked in at stock speed tests.

    not really. like intel turbo, you test and see how it works automatically.

    game test? who cares if turbo was on or off, only how it performs on average.
