Good-if expensive-upgrade for AM2+/3 motherboards which won't take FX CPUs.

  • Summary: This is a reasonably fast CPU which isn't afraid of a few threads. I bought one to upgrade an AM2+ motherboard which wouldn't support more modern FX-series CPUs, rather than doing a full rebuild. This CPU made a very noticeable difference in performance over my slightly overclocked Phenom 8750. For the prices these are going for (often $200+ around the time of this writing), it would be better to buy a new Vishera CPU instead if your motherboard supports it.

  • 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.

eats thru code like a staved fat kid

  • 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.

Great CPU, but get an aftermarket fan/heatsink

Mark Muehlbauer "-Mark", Amazon

  • 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.

Runs cool and good..

Jeffrey, Amazon

  • 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.

Good performance, less than expected though

Marcos, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • 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.

Good CPU, but terrible heat sink and fan.

Matt, Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: I have had a fine time using my CPU. But the heat sink and fan are very small looking rather underpowered. And despite its size the fan is very loud. I would recommend buying a separate heat sink and fan if you buy this CPU.

Excellent Processor, 1 major problem

Steve, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: Now as far as processors go, this one for the money is Excellent!!! i used to have a Quad core processor which was good, but i felt the upgrade was needed, and what a good choice in AMD processor. Its a lot faster due to the 2x extra cores, which i noticed in video conversions, i tested the same film on both CPU and with a massive 1 hour taken off the time of a conversion from the AMD Phenom II x6 1090T it is clear the difference it has made. Now the PROBLEM...
