  • Awesome multi-threading for the money, Surprisingly good overclocking headroom
  • Not the best gaming chip ever made, The 1055T is better value
  • Welcome back AMD, we've missed you. With the launch of the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition a few months ago, AMD signalled a revival of its CPU business. The 1090T is based on Thuban, a new six-core chip and easily the best processor design from AMD i...

  • After spending some time with this CPU I have to say I am impressed again by another AMD Black Edition product, the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition 3.2 gives out great performance for the price and with some in reserve too. Ok so the chip does not...

  • Six cores for quad core money, Slots into existing motherboards, Excellent number-crunching, Overclocks easily to 4.0GHz
  • Game performance second to Intel i7 , Turbo CORE not so clever, No increase in L3 cache for the extra cores, Only dual channel DDR
  • At the Pentium 4's press launch, Intel talked confidently about future versions reaching 10GHz. Oh dear, now we know better. The path to performance lies with multiple core chips. Intel started the trend and where Intel goes, AMD isn't too far behind -...
