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. The 1100T also brings a price drop to the top performance slot, and pushes the X6 1090T to a new lower price point as well - yes, AMD is dropping prices on their Thuban architecture processors, with the new pricing...
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.
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Processor Review

Conclusion: The X6 1100T is priced at around RM 780, and it’s still behind the Core i5 2500 (~RM 630) and Core i7 2600 (~RM 900) and it’s still behind them even after overclocking. It’s consumes more power on full load compared to those processors as well. Until AMD unveils Bulldozer, the X6 1100T the best processor available from AMD. If you’re setting up a new system, I’m sorry to say that it is clear that Intel is the better option.
Conclusion: With an MSRP of $295, the Phenom II X6 1090T was once strategically placed against the Core i7 930, but the latter has since been replaced by the Core i7 950 at this price point. When we first tested the Phenom II X6 1090T processor in April, we found the Core i7 930 to be faster in most of our real-world tests. The Intel CPU dominated all of our application and gaming benchmarks . Games such as Company of Heroes and Resident Evil 5 heavily favored the Core i7 930.
Excerpt: 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 products had ceased, but that is not the case.
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
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. Complicating the matter is the fact that benchmarks change, a manufacturer may change the technical details of a product, and the retail price may change as well.
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, motherboards (with BIOS update)
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. Now refined, tweaked and polished enough to arrive with a native 3.3GHz frequency run across six cores, the 1100T goes toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7 chips and isn't the first one to blink.
