Excerpt: AMD Unveils New Phenom II & Athlon II Processors AMD AMD is releasing more processors for the Fall, offering clock speed bumps for existing price points and introducing a new six core AMD Phenom II, the X6 1075T. Six new products are being introduced, none of them slower than 3GHz, within all the AMD 'STARS' CPU family: Thuban , Deneb , Propus , Rana and Regor . We're going to take a look at three of them: Phenom II X6 1075T, Phenom II X2 560BE and Athlon II X3 450.

We have seen in this review that an additional core does make a difference in several benchmarks and can come in handy with multitasking in Windows. At a price tag of ten dollars more than the Athlon II X2 265 one would think “I can find an extra $10 somewhere.
