Summary: This very good processor for the price. I own both a AMD Phenom II x6 1090T and Intel i5 650. Phenom II paired with gigabyte 990FX UHD3 ver3. it hold's it own. Overclocked to 3.9GHz on stock voltage. runs around 38 - 40c idle on load 48 - 51c Prime 95 100% load. It plays games well. With that said the Intel i5 650 that set on EVGA P55 FTW 200 motherboard (overclocked) at 4GHz runs cooler and it a little bit stronger.
Summary: I switched to 6 core Phenom 1090T from 2 core Phenom 550. I was hoping for bigger performance boost in photo editing. There was a boost, but not as big as benchmarks would suggest. What more, the CPU makes a high-pitched squeaking sound under heavy load. Can't eliminate that. And yes, it's definitely the CPU, not the cooling, not the motherboard coils, not the PSU. Noise comes from Phenom X6 1090T itself.
Summary: I recommend this processor- Plenty of power that you will "feel". Feels faster booting, benchmarking, and loading games. Loads Battlefield 3 in very little time, even with hard drive, almost instant with SSD and 8+ gigs of RAM. My GTX 480 is the bottleneck now. BF3 only uses about 40% to 60% of each core, While my GTX480 uses 98%. Dropped right in my old Asus M3HT with DDR2 800 memory after a BIOS flash.
Great poduct for the money! theres some future proofing since its a 6 core!

Summary: If you're running applications that are well threaded and you're looking to improve performance in them, AMD generally offers you better performance for the same money as Intel. It all boils down to AMD selling you more cores than Intel at the same price point. Applications like video encoding and offline 3D rendering show the real strengths of the Phenom II X6.
Summary: Looking at this from a dollar spent per unit of power, this CPU is about the best value you can get (at the time of this writing). Slightly outperforms my i7 920. Paired this with 4 GB CORSAIR XMS3 DHX and the Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX motherboard. Oh, also, let this thing fly with a SSD from Intel (I used the 60GB version) and it hums along very well. Using a standard hard drive for data and a few bigger apps.
The price is right and competetive performance for intel$

Summary: I build my machines mainly for home theature and gaming.I upgraded mother board and cpu to do away with hp and all them other pc oem builds charging way to much for repairs and doing away with tatoed components that leave you no choice but to stick with there 3-4 times overpriced hardware.They wanted 400 dallars for a mb and another 300 for a seagate 720gb hard drive.Funny that I can pickup the same hard drive with 1tb capasity for about 100 bucks.But all in all F oem...
Summary: 1090T as the current flagship for AMD consumer CPU, is a mid-range CPU Processor that has the bang for the buck. Highly recommended for gamers who wants that performance, but low on budget. High marks with the proper hardware. Easy OC, and runs cooler then any other X6 processor.
