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...

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...

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?...

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...

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...

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...

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...

The 1100T is a very impressive chip. It's fairly affordable, has a high stock clock speed, offers flexibility with that unlocked multiplier and consequently clocks well.Because of the multi I don't think I'd need to specifically recommend a decent...

Back in the early days of personal computing, manufacturers realized that in order for the dream of having a PC in every household to become a reality, the price of a system must be affordable and within reach of the average consumer. One of the...

AMD's release of the Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition CPU is a clear and obvious move to extract the very last drop of performance from the ageing architecture that has its roots in the K8 chip first brought to market over seven years ago. Now...

If we were judging the 1100T BE in isolation you’d probably be seeing a big shiny gold circle just a few inches below this paragraph. The CPU improves on the previous 1090T BE at stock speeds due to its slight clock bump, and it also proved to be a...

It's really nice to see the Phenom II X6s at such low prices. The 1075T, at a round 3GHz and selling for $200, is a real killer. If one wants better overclocking and an unlocked multiplier, the 1090T isn't much more expensive at $229. The step up to...
