With the obvious intention to clear out higher-end Phenom II series processors from the market, and to make room for the new upcoming FX-series "Bulldozer" CPUs, AMD introduced a chain of price-cuts affecting all price-points. This comes after the introduction of the new Phenom II X4 980 BE part, earlier this week. The X4 980 BE pushes down prices of nearly all Phenom II X4 and X2 parts, while pulling down six-core models with it.

The six-core X6 1090T Black Edition with unlocked multiplier is priced on par with it, while the 1075T, 1065T, and 1055T are below it. The Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition continues to be the fastest AMD has to offer, and it's just a little over $200, at $205, making it a heck of a deal against Intel Core i5-2500K. All the prices are tabled below.

Can somebody explain to me why the 1065T is more expensive than the 1075T and the same price as a 1090T BE? lol

My guess is that those procs will be faded out, so their price won't be adjusted.

TBH do anyone seriously buy the 1075T anyways?
It is almost the same price as the 1090T since launch.

IMO if Bulldozer turns out to be another Phenom II with price being their only advantage, I will abandon AMD solutions for good(not gpu though, best!)

Ya they probably have a lot more 1075s on storage and want to get rid of them

I wont, cluster computering for virtualized environments, 6 core with 16 gb ram for almost no money at all.
nothing can really beat it's price point.

But gaming machine is something diffrent...

Yeah, but the even slower 1065 is THE SAME PRICE as the 1090. That makes even less sense than the 1075's price point.

why do people keep saying apus? theytre normal cpus for am3+, lliano will be a completely different socket with cores based on k10.5



bulldozer apus are a ways off still, notice how there are no immediate plans for 9xxg/9xxgx chipsets?

you wont see chipsets like that when bulldozer apu krisna comes.

there will be no northbridge required for krisna, just like sandy the pci-e controller will most likely be ONDIE.
You can put up a seperate pci-e controller just like NF200 gets used.
Most likely 24 pci-e lanes will be interigated in krisna, or 16 so not enough for very high end, but most users it will be sufficient.

How many lanes it'll have, I have no clue, but its only idiotic to not have a pci-e controller on die when you have gpu, cpu, and imc on die.

Bulldozer is just like Bobcat, it's codename for cores not for processor entirely like Zambezi and Llano. even i got confused by it.. :ohwell:

so yeah, different from Zambezi (FX-series), Llano (E-series) is APU itself. and Khrisna will be Zacate's successor with 28nm process..

IMO the 1100t still isn't a competitor for the 2500k. Doesn't anyone get what performance-per-core means? :shadedshu
really?

cpubenchmark only do one test, and it's based only from the software they were created. if you want to see how good they really works, test it on real and syntethic benchmarks like dhry-whetstone, video encoding-transcoding, 3dmark, and real-time games.

so far i see, 2500k really do better than 1100T. but only significant on memory test and games that cpu demanded like far cry 2 and GTA IV. the rest only 10-15% faster. so based on new prices, for the people who's budget tighted, 1100T it's still good bargains..

I like the adjustment. The 1090T seems like the best option to me.

But what it comes down to, is which one is the best bang for the buck? Why pay $200 for an 1100T on a soon to be dated platform that significantly underperforms a CPU that only costs $30 more, and does significantly better across the board (minus like, Cinebench)?

not all people have the most "up-to-date" platform, even i still had X2 5000+ on AM2, and pentium D on LGA775 running almost 15 hours a day..

i'm not defending AMD. even i had a plan to build my next rig with 2500K. but again, its all back to buyer, which platform they will find more suitable.

btw, 10-15% more faster is not that significant, take a look at this :

You might use a lot of multi-threaded applications or just run shit tons of stuff at the same time.

I run shit tons of stuff at the same time.

Whilst clock for clock I get beaten having two extra cores means more leway when it comes to abusing my system :toast:

"bulldozer apu krisna comes" I think I specified bulldozer krisna apu ;P but yes I do that error, describe zambezi as bulldozer and next gen bulldozer design as krisna. but not now. so didn't quite understand the reason for the post.

But my point is, AM3+ will not support APU... and will probably be swapped out in 2013 or something like that.
I'd be suprised if bulldozer ever will be apu on am3+.

APU's only listed for BGA-413 socket..

BGA-413 is for Zacate APU's which is now already on retail, FM1 is for "upcoming" Llano APU's..
