Phenom II X6 Series Details Surface, Slated for May 2010

AMD's upcoming six-core desktop processor, codenamed "Thuban" is on course for a May 2010, suggests a report. The series is likely to receive the brand name Phenom II X6. There are four models planned for release within Q2, 2010. The Thuban core is AMD's desktop implementation of the Istanbul core, in the socket AM3 package, supporting dual-channel DDR3 memory. It is a monolithic multi-core design with six x86-64 cores, each with 128 KB of L1, 512 KB of L2 cache, and a 6 MB L3 cache shared between the six cores. Just as with K10 dual, triple, and quad core processors where AMD used a HyperTransport interface clock speed of 1800 MHz (3600 MT/s), or 2000 MHz (4000 MT/s), the new processor will take advantage of HyperTransport 3.x interface, with a HT speed of 2400 MHz (4800 MT/s). Thuban will be built on GlobalFoundaries' 45 nm node.

The table below lists out details of the four planned models. The model number of the top part isn't known. Most likely it is a Black Edition part, which comes with an unlocked BClk multiplier. It operates at 2.80 GHz, with a TDP of 140W. A step below is the Phenom II X6 1075T, which has an expected TDP of 125W, the 1055T is a notch below, and 1035T being the cheapest part. The exact clock speeds of the latter three models isn't known as yet. A month ahead of releasing these chips, AMD will announce the AMD 8-series chipset platform, led by 890FX (high-end, best for CrossFireX), 890GX (performance integrated graphics with CrossFire support). The AMD SB800 series southbridge chips will feature native support for SATA 6 Gb/s. Its on-die SATA controller gives out six SATA ports complete with RAID support. Some existing AM3 motherboards based on 7-series chipsets may also support Phenom II X6 with a BIOS update.

720BE to i5 for me. Before 720 i had 955 and 940. All excellent chips but the i5 to me is like comparing an C's to DD's.

Wrong. i5 vs 955 at 4ghz the i5 having the better architecture and handling faster speed DDR3 stomps the 955. Not only that, but the i5 having more raw power handles higher powerd dual GPUs better as well. When comparing the 2 i had 2 280s. The i5 handled the 280s like a pimp handles his whores. The 955 struggled to feed both.

I seriously doubt that.

I dont since i own an i5 and have owned a 955 i have done testing on both and i now have the winner. I never once got 27k in 06 with an AMD rig of any kind using 2 280s. The same went for my game FPS using high res and strong AA.

I did wonder something about his issues. My 3DMark scores are near his even when I'm using a single ATi 5770 OC'd, and the cpu was only at 3.9Ghz for those tests. Still got me 18,6xx which is in the range PP was talking with his TWO 280's (18-21k).

I think he said 27k...

Beside I got 23k using two 8800GT with my cpu at 4.2GHz, and 21k for a single GTX280.

With 2 280s running on my 955 i got around 18-21k. With the i5 at 4ghz i got 27k. So yea i needed more power.
This is from his earlier post, that's why I'm saying something just wasn't right. We have guys with single 4890's running 4Ghz cpu speeds getting 20k in the same test.

no multi card scaling at all 22K with a 4870X2 and 4850X2 but i assume CFX wasn't working so just 4870X2 scored



vs 20K on a 4850X2....

It's mean the cpu is seriously bottlenecked the cards. It's not that the CFX wasn't working.

no CFX literally wasn't working cause the 4870X2 by itself put up the same score i just couldn't find a screenie of it

Here are all the top scores with HD4870X2.

These are world records, and yup all the top cpu OC are like 5-6GHz.

A 3.8GHz Phenom can barely feed a single HD4870X2
