The AMD Phenom 2 X6 1100T Black Edition is based on AMD's 45nm "Thuban" architecture. Its six cores operate at 3.3GHz, the Turbo Core frequency has also been boosted by 100MHz and now reaches as high as 3.7GHz. It features the traditional Phenom 2 6MB L3 cache, while each individual core receives its own 512KB L2 cache. That makes up for total cache of 9MB.

The Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition does little to improve upon the performance of AMD's hexa-core CPU series. However, it does help improve the value of these high-end desktop processors by making the 1090T BE model even cheaper. With an MSRP of...

Now that Piledriver-based CPUs and APUs are widely available (and the FX-8350 is selling for less than $200), it's a great time to compare value-oriented chips in our favorite titles. We're also breaking out a test that conveys the latency between...

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 inside! 86...

This time we'd like to offer you the summarized test results of as many as 71 processors. This generally marks the end of the year, not the end of another test method's life cycle (like the last time). We believe this summary contains all important...

While we don't want to give the impression that the i7-3930K is a slow CPU for consumer applications and games, it isn't significantly faster than the Core i7-2600K. This is a problem for Intel, as the i7-3930K is almost exactly double the price;...

Believe it or not – this is my first hex-core processor review. Covered from single core to 4 core 8 threads so far but not a hex-core. Again, my apologies for a long gap between article. Things aren't all that rosy outside the Internet. This review...

Things were going quite well for Phenom II, for a while. The debacle of the original Phenom launch left a sour taste, but the general quality, speed, price, and efficiency of their replacements more than made up for it. Phenom II chips were priced to...

The 1100T BE represents great value, it offers strong performance for a bargain price tag....

This new hex-core chip is symptomatic of AMD's current predicament: that its most expensive PC processors sell for barely one-third the price of Intel's. And that's not a situation the new AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition is going to change –...

Both, the Phenom 1100T Black Edition and the 1035T have a great value proposition. Who does not want to buy a processor with more cores and more speed, at a lower price?...

AMD knows that we're impatiently waiting for some traction on Fusion. And while we expect to see its first notebook-oriented Fusion-based processors featured in actual products at CES, we're still a ways away from seeing the technology in action on...

Yes, the AMD speed bumps are here again. In what has almost become a bi-monthly tradition, we're starting to take the company's increasing clock rates and seemingly-static price tags for granted. Unfortunately, we can only overclock our Phenom II X6...

By Icrontic on

So there you have it. AMD’s new flagship CPU is able to mostly keep pace with (and sometimes slip past) Intel’s top LGA1156 CPU. Normally this would get a recommendation, but it just isn’t the case this time. Why? Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge are...

By Hardware Secrets on

There are some good news about the new Phenom II X6 1100T. It comes with the same price tag the Phenom II X6 1090T used to carry, meaning that AMD dropped the price for all the other six-core CPUs they have. The second thing really good about this CPU...

Final Words & Conclusion The conclusion on AMD's six-core processors tend to get a little repetitive, but yeah... they surely do offer a lot of value for money. Despite being a minor speed bump over the 1090T for the money you really can't go wrong...

We didn't experience any major surprises throughout our testing of the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition. Due to its higher base (3.3GHz) and Turbo Core (3.7GHz) frequencies, the 1100T offered small performance gains over the previous flagship X6...

We can say that the 1100T is of the same breed as the previous X6 chips, but it has more overclocking headroom it appears, and the speeds reachable by Turbo are insane. It wasn't that long ago that AMD chips couldn't touch 4GHz, and grew exponentially...

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...
