AMD Phenom 2 X6 1100T Black Edition 3.3GHz Socket AM3
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.
Real improvement over 965.
TurboCore speed of 3.7 GHz.
A total of 9MB of cache.
6 cores at competitive price.
Unlocked multiplier for easier overclocking.
Works in almost all current AMD motherboards.
Runs fairly cool.
Low power consumption.
Excellent performance in media transcoding and professional rendering and modelling.
Current software does not benefit from all 6 cores.
Limited performance increase over previous top-of-the-line AMD CPU.
Outperformed in key areas by similarly-priced Intel chips.
Intel still has a better performance in light threaded application.
Cheaper Thuban CPUs are just as fast with a little tweaking.
Cannot support an NVIDIA SLI system with AMD chipset motherboard.

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...-

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...-

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...-

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 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...90

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...-
