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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
