For anyone waiting for another AMD hexa-core other than the current 1090T and 1055T, there is hope. A new CPU has been spotted on European e-tailers called the Phenom II X6 1075T. This new processor comes clocked at 3.0GHz, which places it right between the two current models. Other than clock speed, the 1075T uses the same Thuban specifications, but it does come as part of the unlocked BE series.
So far, this new hexa-core processor has yet to make its way into U.S. or Canadian markets, but with it being available in Europe, other markets should soon follow. The 1075T is retailing for €230-€240, but when it hits our retailers the price is stated to be around $265 USD.
The 1075T fills an empty gap in AMD’s current lineup, but with the 1035T still only being sold at the OEM level, a sub $200 hexa-core in the consumer market doesn’t seem likely anytime soon.
