    AMD's lineup of six-core desktop processors under the Phenom II X6 banner indeed includes a high-end part. A Bahrain-based etailer disclosed prices of some of the models, which includes a Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. This chip operates at 3.20 GHz, with a TDP of 125W. Being a Black Edition part, it sports an unlocked BClk multipler that helps overclocking. AMD plans to sell this chip at US $295. The Phenom II X6 1055T is the other part with a price-tag. This 2.80 GHz chip also has its TDP at 125W, although we've lead to believe that AMD will release a 95W variant, too. The 1055T goes for US $199. Both chips are based on the "Thuban" core, which feature six cores on a monolithic die, with 9 MB of total chip cache (512 KB L2 per core, and 6 MB L3 shared).

    Super uber nice price.

    I hope this will push Intel to make 6 cores for ~$300.

    LOL, I have to admit a nice low-cost unlocked six-core Phenom II sounds tasty.

    I aint complainin" no more! ;) Anyways, I'm anxiously awaiting some reviews, if it performs @ least on the same playing field as intel's offerings (I don't mind intel's high end, @ least 920+ range) then I'm sold.

    i looked at encoding stuff, and the P II 965 wasn't too far behind the i7 920 in most tasks - in heavty encoding it had maybe a 20% lead.

    with 50% more cores, these chips WILL be as fast as intel, at least in multithreaded environments - and AMD tends to have better efficiency at idle, which is a win for me.

    see - the ideal price and the ideal speed - isn't it a pity that AMD's marketing department are much better at their job than the techs who produce the designs...

    this will definitely be mine...

    well done AMD - finding a niche against the might of Intel can't be easy...
