Synthetic BenchmarksPossibly the best known and widely used synthetic benchmark, 3D Mark Vantage tests the gaming performance of the PC. PC Mark Vantage on the other hand tests other performance aspects of the PC like video encoding, home entertainment multimedia features, working in an office environment, and basic gaming.
Although it can't match performance of Core i7 processors in CPU tests, Phenom II X6 1090T handles itself well in overall scores and this is good news for gamers. Performance boost with two additional cores over Phenom II X4 and Turbo Core in these benchmarks is just enough for 1090T to stay in touch with its competitors.

wPrime 1024M and SuperPI 1MwPrime is a benchmarking application designed to use a highly multithreaded approach to calculate the square-roots of large amounts of numbers, while SuperPI calculates pi number to a specified number of digits after the decimal point. Both applications are primarily used by overclockers to check the stability and performance of overclocked CPUs. It's clear from results that wPrime is multithreaded benchmark that uses all of the cores no matter if they are simulated with HyperThreading while SuperPI uses just one core.
Here's a great chance to see both hexa power and Turbo Core in action. In wPrime Phenom II X6 1090T really shines, beating both i7 920 and i7 860, and then in single threaded SuperPI it beats Phenom II X4 965 thanks to Turbo Core and higher clocks in single threaded performance. Turbo Core here works flawlessly.
