hey, there's an error in the AMD lineup on the first page. it says that the 965's clock speed is 2.66GHz, but it's actually 3.4GHz.

Ive read alot of the reviews and it seems it doesnt go much further then the 965s in most of the benchmarks most of the applications /games dont really kno what to do with the extra cores.


They are damn well cheap though!!! so bang for the buck? I think so .

Nice debut article. It'll be interesting to see how AMD progresses over the course of 2010 with the new hex models. It feels tempting to jump into the fray right now but I just have a nagging feeling that a 32nm part might emerge that would have me kicking myself in the next 9 months or so. :/

Thank you sir.

There are rumors about a 3.4 GHz part coming, which totally makes sense. However the 1090T is a Black Edition, so if you buy one now it's not a big deal.

GlobalFoundries will have 32nm by the end of the year, so I'd guess we'll see 32nm AMD stuff in Q1 or Q2 2011... Just a guess of course!

Nice review.
So I'm curious now.

Phenom II X6 1055T Operating Frequency 2.8GHz and cache is the same and can be had for $200 now.

How long before we can possibly see an OC review of this chip as well? Any differences beside the clock speed?


I still think it'd be nice to see an intel i7 x4 or i7 x6 chip OC'd for compared review. Looking at old test results does give clues but seeing them stand side by side for comparison of exact same tests is always nice.

First of all, thank you!

There are two difference between the 1055T and 1090T, the obvious one is clock speed, but the 1090T is also a Black Edition chip so it's easier to overclock with little knowledge. Unfortunately, we don't have a 1055T

Any specific benchmarks you'd like to see against OC'ed Intel chips? I can get some charts up for you

I see, I'm not that familiar with OC ins and outs yet, and not having had an AMD in a long time (spent a few years on laptops and largely away from being able to have stationary computing setup, not avoidance). I wasn't aware the black editions were easier to OC. I guess when you get one for review, we'll see how much bang for the buck they give when it's OC'd. From what I was reading on them, black edition aside, they have the same cache and different frequency.

I'm curious to see what the results would be side/side of an i7 920 which is a pretty widely OC'd proc at similar OC speed. Same with the 6 core too actually. I'm not so interested I guess in gaming benches as they seem to swap back and forth, but I'm thinking the AMD chip will edgeout the 920 on productivity or transcoding results.

I don't have anything against AMD, by any means I'm actually a firm believer. I'm just interested in the numbers. I just think there are people interested in the OC results of the AMD 6 core that own an i7 who would be interested in head to head results at the same clock speed or closer. Same with current AMD quad owners. I can see where they could probably estimate the results of the increased performance over their new 6 core, but I'd think if they had a 965 or such OC'd now, they'd like to see that bottom line head to head comparison of both OC'd. Then it seems more clear and straight up the value of performance boost if they want to upgrade or purchase.

I do appreciate the sheer amount of comparisons that were done at stock clock speeds. Though I do wish that the introduction also stamped the frequency of each of the chips as well to remind just what each was at or maybe even what the turbo values would be at too.

The advantage of Black Editions is that every clock multipliers are unlocked so you don't have to tinker with the reference clock as much or at all in some cases. But yeah the 1055T/1090T are otherwise identical

Alright, I updated the non-gaming charts with results from the Core i7-980X at 4.1 GHz and the Core i7-870 at 4 GHz

Enjoy!

I will list overclocked clock speeds from now on, but adding every stock and turbo clock will get very messy. If you want more details on each processor, check this out

Hey I think this is perfect now, easy to see comparisons.

Thanks a million!

funny how you posted so many gaming benchmarks,but you avoided in your conclusion to mention anything about the gaming performance and in particular that the new 1090t looses across the board to the old phenom 965.
so the question is for all the gamers out there,why would they pump 300$ into getting the same gaming performance as the 180$ phenom 965?

same question goes to all the 955/65 phenoms owners.why would they upgrade?

I wouldn't exactly call six gaming benchmarks alot.

There are probably a few reasons but Neoseeker always includes games in it's cpu and gpu benchmarks as there are tons of people who want to know how it will perform.

Not everyone is upgrading from a 965/55 and some people do more than just play games. If you were going into this thinking it would be a better gaming chip you're a fool. It's borderline common sense that nowadays games are barely threaded for four cores let alone six. To expect better performance would be asinine. Not to mention most games aren't exactly cpu starved as it is so it may not really make a difference anyways.

Well the thing is that there's still little need to upgrade to a 6-core unless you really use multithreaded CPU-intensive applications a lot

Personally, I'd like to see how these stack up with video encoding compared to the Intel quad-cores, as that's what I'll be doing most often (in terms of CPU stress, at least).
