Welcome back AMD, we've missed you. With the launch of the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition a few months ago, AMD signalled a revival of its CPU business. The 1090T is based on Thuban, a new six-core chip and easily the best processor design from...

This CPU is sure a step forward when it comes to AMD CPU's the main problem is that Intel is still way ahead of AMD with their faster versions of theCorei5 and i7 cpu's. Looking at todays prices we can see that the Core i7 930 cpu cost about 10$...

Unless you've been living in a cave (and, as Jon Stewart would say, by doing that you "made the soundest real-estate investment possible") , you've surely heard of some good ol' AMD CPU's like Athlon, Duron and - Phenom. Well, what...

After spending some time with this CPU I have to say I am impressed again by another AMD Black Edition product, the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition 3.2 gives out great performance for the price and with some in reserve too. Ok so the chip does...

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...

Without any doubt, Phenom II X6 1090T is the best thing AMD can offer based on their current K10.5 architecture. It is my belief that it will be very hard to squeeze even more out of it before the new Bulldozer architecture comes out. Six phsical...
