AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition CPU review

Elite Bastards
25 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Ever since Intel launched their Core i7 (and later Core i5) CPUs, AMD have been left needing to compete on pricing and the like rather than outright performance - Hardly an unsurprising state of affairs given Intel's traditional dominance of top-notch manufacturing processes and engineering, but it still left a lot of enthusiasts wanting for more, despite AMD succeeding in tempting some with the lure of unlocked multipliers on their Black Edition CPUs.

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition

PC Magazine
7 August 2010
  • Conclusion: Loaded with six processing cores, the 3.2-GHz Phenom II X6 1090T is the most powerful consumer processor AMD has ever released, and it's compellingly priced (at just $285). But if you want top-level speed, you'll have to shell out more for an Intel chip—even the 1090T will only take you so far.
  • Pros: AMD's fastest processor yet. Turbo CORE technology introduces automatic overclocking. Less expensive than Intel's top-tier CPU.
  • Cons: Considerably less powerful than Intel's high-end CPUs.

  • Summary: AMD has a new flagship and it is very impressive to say the least. The Turbo CORE Technology which is built into the processor to monitor the workload and autonomously adjust the processors core speeds of three cores that are under load to a higher clock speed is just unthinkable. Also the release of the new 890FX chipset which includes the performance points of the new six core processor is something to experience to appreciate.

  • Excerpt: This six-core CPU doesn’t match Intel’s Core i7-980X for raw speed, but at less than a third of the price, it’s a stellar choice for content creators on a budget.
  • Pros: Stunning performance for the price, Dynamic clock helps speed performance in programs that use just one core
  • Cons: Doesn’t approach performance of Intel’s six-core counterpart

Six Cores from AMD: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition and Phenom II X6 1055T CPU Review

X-bit labs
26 April 2010
  • Summary: AMD followed into Intel’s footsteps and launched their six-core processors as well. However, they used a completely different approach: AMD decided not to switch to new manufacturing process or develop a completely new semiconductor die. However, as a result we got a Phenom II X6 – a mainstream and affordable processor with six computational cores that has no analogues and is compatible with Socket AM3 form-factor.
