AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor Review
4 October 2011
Excerpt: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor Review AMD Today AMD introduces their newest top dog processor, the Phenom II X6 1100T BE. Replacing the 1090T Black Edition as the highest clocked six core processor from AMD, the 1100T runs at 3.3GHz with 3.7GHz Turbo mode.
Excerpt: AMD has traditionally priced its CPUs with value in mind and with the six core Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition (BE), it's the same story. Whereas it costs a mere US $270, Intel's top-end six core CPU the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition sells for a dizzying $999.
Excerpt: AMD has certainly been making waves of late; their announcement of the Fusion architecture is certainly a shot across Intel’s bow. The higher end equivalent, code-named Bulldozer, promises to make significant strides forward on the high end. All of that is somewhere down the line, though.
Conclusion: Benchmark tests should always be taken with a grain of salt. It's difficult to try and isolate the performance difference a single component in a computer system makes, especially when it's necessary to compare across different manufacturers and platforms.
Pros: True 6-physical-core processor, Turbo Core feature auto-overclocks to 3.7GHz if 3 or fewer cores in use, Easily overclocks to 4GHz without requiring a high-end motherboard, Excellent performance in media transcoding, professional rendering, and modeling, Low 125 watt TDP, Works in older AM2, moth...
Cons: Cheaper Thuban CPUs are just as fast with a little tweaking, Not as much cache as competitive Intel processors, Cannot support an NVIDIA SLI system with AMD chipset motherboard
Conclusion: AMD's release of the Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition CPU is a clear and obvious move to extract the very last drop of performance from the ageing architecture that has its roots in the K8 chip first brought to market over seven years ago.
Conclusion: So there you have it. AMD’s new flagship CPU is able to mostly keep pace with (and sometimes slip past) Intel’s top LGA1156 CPU. Normally this would get a recommendation, but it just isn’t the case this time. Why?
Summary: We have been hearing a lot from AMD over the last few months regarding the slew of new processors and Fusion APUs slated to arrive next year. With all of the news regarding Zacate, Ontario, Bobcat, Bulldozer, and Llano, et al, that has hit recently, you’d think work on the current generation of...
Pros: AMD's Fastest CPU Yet, Strong Multi-Threaded Performance, Strong Lightly Threaded Performance Thanks to Turbo Core
Cons: Can't Touch An Intel 6-Core In Terms of Performance, Small Speed Bump Over 1090T
