AMD Phenom II X6 1075T 6-Core Processor Performance Review
3 December 2010
Excerpt: Since the initial release of the Thuban series of AMD processors AMD hasn’t made any changes to that line up. Well, fortunately for us that has now changed. Just recently AMD has introduced a new product to their already full line up. The AMD Phenom II X6 1075T is essentially a Phenom II X6 1055T with an increase in the multiplier. Instead of running at 200MHz with a x14 multiplier, the AMD Phenom II X6 1075T chugs along with a x15 multiplier.
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 3.5GHz if 3 or fewer cores in use, Easily overclocks to more than 4GHz in an 890FX motherboard, Excellent performance in media transcoding and professional rendering and modelling, Low 125 watt TDP, Works in older AM2, motherboards (with BIOS update)
Cons: 45nm process is kinda old these days, Not as much cache as competitive Intel processors, Cannot support an NVIDIA SLI system

Conclusion: Overall the speed increases did make a difference in performance when tested against the older revisions. One big advantage of manufacturers releasing these improvements is that it drives down the prices of current retail processors. This leaves us with the latest and greatest for our fun rigs and inexpensive and efficient parts for everyday computing without having to break the bank.
Pros: Increased speeds, Improved overclocks on Phenom processors, Keeps pricing on current released processors competitive, Wide array of core options to choose from
Summary: While this isn’t the fastest processor on the market, AMD has really shown what they can do. It’s clear that their goal is not to be the best, but to be the best value, and the benchmarks show what a great value this processor is. This product is very strong in many ways such as multi-threaded performance and sheer value.
Conclusion: Whew, what a ride. This processor was a blast to benchmark and overclock. 4.5 GHz on air was just icing on the cake. Competitive through 3D testing, real-word rendering testing and 2D tests, the entire experience was a romp through a field of silicon goodness. Are there negatives? Sure, there always are. It’s not the fastest six-core CPU on the market. Intel holds that crown and AMD isn’t trying to dispute it. Where AMD wins out though is price-for-performance.
Conclusion: Today’s launch of the X6 1075T fills the gaps between the X6 1090T and X6 1055T. As expected, the six-core processor shines in applications that are heavily threaded. Unfortunately, not many desktop applications, such as games and Office Suites, are heavily threaded enough to really take the advantage of the extra cores. Many applications still only utilize two (at most four) cores effectively.
AMD Releases 6 New Desktop Processors: Phenom II X6 1075T and X4 970 Highlight the Launch
21 September 2010
Excerpt: While all the talk surrounding AMD as of late has been about Fusion and Bulldozer, AMD is still improving and upgrading their current lineup of processors. While the Phenom II products are the top end units, AMD is making a decent living off of the much less expensive, yet still quick, Athlon II series of products. Today AMD is releasing nine new processor SKUs, six of which are reviewed here.
