Check out these quotes from AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition reviews & previews
"There are still reasons you might want to "go Intel": perhaps you need the incredible performance of the AES-NI features of their latest CPUs, or you want to run an NVIDIA SLI setup (which, due to some weird political wrangling between AMD and NVIDIA, you cannot do with current AMD-chipset motherboards). Intel continues to reign at the highest performance levels, but if you need or want hexacore goodness at a price you can actually afford, then an AMD Phenom-II X6 CPU is your baby."
"I'm really pleased with the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T, it's an excellent value for the performance. In fact, the Phenom II X6 1100T is launching at a lower price ($265) than the Phenom II X6 1090T was when it originally came out ($295). The current price for the X6 1090T ($229) makes it a pretty sweet deal, and should overclock in the same ballpark as an X6 1100T. It should be noted that all AM3 processors are compatible with current AM3 & AM2+ sockets, and are designed to be compatible with the upcoming AM3+ socket... So you get backwards and forwards compatability."
"The Phenom II X6 1100T may be a good CPU if you know what you are buying. If you will run programs that will use the extra cores provided by this CPU – 3D image rendering and video processing are the best examples –, then this new CPU brings an unbeatable cost/benefit ratio. It is true that Intel has several CPUs that are faster than the Phenom II X6 1100T, but they are also more expensive."
"If you already own an AM2+/AM3 system and are looking for improved multi-threaded performance, buying an 1100T or any other Phenom II is a no-brainer decision. For $180 to 265, you can have a new six-core chip that can fairly easily hit about 4.0Ghz , and will chew through absolutely any type of workload that you put in front of it. As we stated in our original launch article, these chips are a mainstream power user's dream. Having said that, make sure that your applications can harness this processor's capabilities. There are relatively few consumer applications and only a handful of games that can make use of more than 4 threads, so don't bother upgrading your Phenom II X4 just yet since you likely won't be too impressed with the additional power. If you have an original 65nm “Agena” quad-core Phenom processor, I absolutely wouldn’t have any qualms about recommending an upgrade to the X6 1100T. Not would you be getting a healthy clock-for-clock performance gain, but superior multi-threading capabilities, but lower consumption, lower operating temperatures, and significantly improved overclocking headroom."
"There were no real surprises when testing the 1100T Black Edition as it features the same core and components as previous X6 models. This of course means a high quality product which features a proven, stable design. As our results show the 1100T performs well across a range of tests and excels in Cinebench and high definition playback. Overclocking potential was good and those who move to the latest X6 model from older quad core versions will notice benefits from the extra cores and the inclusion of Turbo Core. The only down side to the CPU is its price to performance ratio. This is normally a very strong point for AMD however the particularly aggressive pricing of the i7-950 and performance it delivers means the 1100T could do with being about £20/$30 cheaper to make it a better value purchase."
