With Christmas right around the corner, we're sure many of you will be treating yourselves to a new computer. Realizing that, AMD is doing its best to tempt you with a shiny new hexacore CPU with today's release of the Phenom II X6 1100T, their new six-core flagship processor. In true AMD fashion, the company has priced its latest entry at a very reasonable $265. That's the same rate as the older Phenom II X6 1090T, which has been lowered to $230 to make room for the new 1100T model.
While today's review is focusing on the launch of the new Phenom II X6 1100T, which brings a mere 100MHz speed bump, we suspect most of you will be more excited about the prospect of a six-core Black Edition processor for a little over $200. After all, the new 1100T is only clocked 3% higher than the 1090T, while both feature fully unlocked clock multipliers, essentially making them one in the same. Read the complete review.
