The Phenom II X6 is an interesting proposition as it's meant to provide heavy multi-tasking performance on a budget. Starting with the Phenom II X6 1090T, this processor can be matched to the Core i7 930 processor as they are both priced around the...

Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data...

Our previous review was dedicated to the Core i7-800 LGA1156 series. The conclusion was that those solutions, as well as the Core i7-900 LGA1366 series, can offer enough computing power for most tasks you may need accomplished. At least four cores and...

Dealing with current news means that we rarely have the opportunity to review old products and of course a comparison between the most recent products and those that came out several years ago can get a little problematic. But we’ve decided to push...

If you are looking to build a new system or upgrade an existing system, the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor should be a serious contender on your short list! It offers top of the charts performance, and can be purchased for under !...

Remember when AMD launched its first quad-core processor in 2007? We can, because back then it seemed like AMD was months from keeling over stone dead. Today, the company is in much finer fettle. For proof, look no further than the new AMD Phenom II...

AMD's Phenom II X6 1055T 95W CPU is a chip that shows just how much the Austin outfit has squeezed out of its ageing K10 architecture. Imbued with six processing cores for genuine multi-tasking and running at up-to 3.3GHz under favourable...

It has been a while since we tested some CPUs. Since about three months AMD is selling it's first Hexa-Core generation, namely the Phenom II X6 1055T and the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. Both CPUs are still manufactured in a 45nm SOI process,...

To be honest, several weeks ago while testing Phenom II X6 1090T I was really impressed by flexibility in performance and raw power of six cores in multithreaded applications. This time, Phenom II X6 1055T failed to make such strong impressions. Its...

Now you can see what my definition of a true enthusiast. It's not someone that can buy the best, or flex the biggest e-peen. It's not someone that knows everything about everything and can flame anyone that disagrees with them. It's someone...

AMD’s Phenom II X6 1055T is one of the best value for money propositions on the market. It’s a true six-core CPU that can be found for around $230 from online stores and we heartily recommend it if you want to build yourself a fast PC...

With a mighty six cores and automatic overclocking, the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor is inexpensive, runs relatively cool, and can be run on AM2+ motherboards. But PC customisers should note that you can't overclock this chip by changing the...

Whatever way you look at it, Phenom II X6 1055T is a very interesting solution that is hard to pass. Even a quick look at a processor price list in any store will be enough for you to notice this CPU. There are only three six-core processor models...

A better deal than the faster 1090T, and a reasonable choice for those upgrading, but Intel quad-core chips are both quicker and cheaper....

sI have to say, I have mixed feelings about the new Phenom II X6 processors. On one hand, it’s nice to see AMD step up to a new price range and actually compete (Intel probably holds a permanent position at $1000, but perhaps the $550-600 i7 9xx...

A very smart man once told me that absolute performance doesn’t matter, it’s performance at a given price point that makes a product successful. While AMD hasn’t held the absolute performance crown for several years now, that...

AMD just opened a new era - affordable sixcore CPUs for everyone. Whereas Intel keeps the overall performance crown (in fact, also stays king of the hill in most individual benchmarks), they also command a hefty price premium. Whereas, when you look at...

So this is value at its absolute best. But seriously, it's time for AMD to stop following Intel, and start to lead. AMD's processors need some sort of hyper threading embedded and make a move to...

In heavily multi-threaded applications, the two extra cores in the AMD processors really make the difference. In lightly-threaded applications the winner jumps back and forth. However, for the...
