From the Manufacturer
The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T is an ideal processor for enthusiasts looking to maximize their PC performance without breaking the bank. With six cores and a blazing 2.8 GHz clock speed, the processor is designed to handle all of the latest and most demanding software. It also has a versatile AM2+/AM3 socket and is compatible with a wide range of motherboards. Loaded with performance-boosting technologies, the 1055T will take your PC experience to the next level.
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Six-Core Processor
Six Powerful Processing Cores
With the Phenom II X6 series, AMD has made the power of six-core processing available to budget-conscious consumers. Engineers have combined six cores into a single processor, giving you enough processing muscle for even the most highly threaded applications. Each core is equipped with 512K L2 cache, and all six cores share 6MB L3 smart cache between them. AMD has also included an ultra-wide, 4000MT/s bandwidth--enough to support all six cores effectively.
For users, this means that you'll be able to run all the latest software without the slowdown you'd experience with an inferior processor. Your computer will be able to handle multiple programs at once, and high-definition media players and video editors will run smoothly and efficiently. You'll also be able to enjoy next-gen games without any frame-rate hiccups.
The 1055T also has a high overclocking ceiling, giving enthusiasts plenty of headroom to increase their chip's frequency. With a little tweaking, you can lift your processor's performance to even greater heights.
Turbo Core Optimizes Performance
The Phenom II X6 series also comes equipped with Turbo Core technology, which actively optimizes the chip's performance to match your workload. If three or less cores are in use, the processor will redirect voltage to the active cores and overclock them by up to 500 MHz. With Turbo Core activated, you'll be able to blaze through all applications--even ones that don't make use of multiple cores.
Cutting-Edge Technologies for Faster Processing
The Phenom II X6 also makes use of several other performance-boosting technologies, including:
- HyperTransport Bandwidth: Speeds up communication between the processor and memory, improving overall system performance.
- Integrated Memory Controller: Actively scales bandwidth uses to match your computing needs, dramatically reducing slowdown.
- 128-bit Floating-Point Unit (FPU): Allows processor to execute floating-point calculations with extreme speed.
Gaming without Slowdown
PC gaming continues to improve at a breakneck rate, with graphics, physics, and AI growing more realistic each year. But you'll need more than just a good graphics card to keep up with the latest games. For certain games that are heavily threaded, a slow CPU can quickly become a bottleneck for performance and can ruin your gaming experience.
Fortunately, the Phenom II X6 series has been specifically designed to handle CPU-intensive games. With its multiple cores, the processor can manage thousands of high-speed gaming calculations at once. The result is a smooth, immersive gaming experience, free of any stuttering or latency.
The Ultimate in Energy Efficiency and Cooling
AMD products are known for their stellar energy efficiency, and the Phenom II X6-1055T is no exception. The processor features AMD's proprietary PowerNow and CoolCare technology, which allow the processor to smartly regulate its own energy consumption. Having an energy-efficient computer doesn't just help keep costs down; it also generates less heat and helps your computer to run more quietly. It will even prolong your processor's life cycle, so you can enjoy it for years without having to worry about degradation.
The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Six-Core Processor is backed by a three-year warranty.

To test out the CPU I installed Battlefield 3 and put everything up to ultra and then checked the CPU usage %.....only a total of 7%!!! Theres complaints about the fan, but I cant even hear it. The only fan I ever hear is my cases main fan. And it seems to never get hot. After playing skyrim for 5 hous a was able to reach in my case and hold the CPU heatsink, it was barely warm.
This is just an absolute must get processor. I will never buy another intel after using this!

I think one important thing to note for people who do overclock their processors is that this chip overclocks at least as well as the 4 core chips, so there really is no downside for gaming, etc... to pick 6 cores over 4. With Turbo Boost, this thing will run faster than the default clock on up to three cores, so if you have any games that only use one or two cores, you'll get great performance given the game's limitations.
After some careful tweaking, I now have my rig running rock stable at 3.8Ghz, with Turbo Boost set to run at 4.05 Ghz!
If you do plan on Overclocking, make sure to spring for a good cpu cooler. this is the one I settled on and even after running Prime 95 on all 6 cores in an 80F room, core temp stays below 60C!

I paired the processor with a great new motherboard, which has nice features, great stability and superb overclocking support:
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AM3 - AMD 890GX - DDR3 - USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s - ATX Motherboard
New Power Supply:
Corsair CMPSU-850TX 850-Watt TX Series 80 Plus
And of course, new ram (Running at 1600 Mhz):
Corsair XMS3 4 GB PC3-12800 1600Mhz Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit CMX4GX3M2A1600C9
All running on Windows 7 Professional 64Bit:
Overall performance is incredible. This processor also dynamically adjusts load between the six cores. Have a game or app that only runs on 2 cores? The processor will bounce the threads from one core to another, to even out the load and help evenly spread heat generation. AMD's Cool n' Quite also works very well with this processor. Testing benchmarks with Cool n' Quiet on or off made zero difference in performance under load, but the technology will intelligently and dynamically adjust processor speed on each core independently, from a low of around 1.2 Ghz up to the Turbo Boost Speed, as needed. This saves on energy consumption (core voltages adjust with the speed adjustments) and helps keep your system running cool under normal use.
I've also found that this new system plays very well with Windows 7 sleep mode, with time needed to put the system to sleep or wake it back up again being around 5 seconds! All the fans in my system are shut down in sleep mode as well, so it's a true energy saving sleep solution.
To end, I want to stress that you will probably want a good cooler, maybe even if you don't plan to overclock. The Zalman Performa made a huge difference in core temps at idle and under load and runs more quietly than the stock fan, under most conditions. To get the best of this, or any processor, you want to make sure the other components are a good match to the CPU as well.
Here are some scores I got on various benchmarks: intel burn test-68gigaflops, 3dmark 06-23,000(cpu score of 6400), 3d mark vantage-21,000(19000 cpu score), cinebench 10-20150, cinebench 11.5-6.65, windows exp index score of 7.6 for processor and ram, 7.7 for graphics.So this is a great processor for the price, not as powerful as an i7, but then its not as expensive either and I'm not concerned about 5-10 fps difference on average for most games or an extra 3 secs in photoshop or video converting.
Before i bought this i had done some extensive readin about it, so i knew that the stock fan could get loud and irritating that why i replaced it with the Cooler Master Hyper N520 Mirror Finished Copper Base Aluminum Fins 5 Heatpipes CPU Cooler - (RR-920-N520-GP) and i cant complain. My temperature is normally about 31 degrees.
I am not into overclocking so i cant talk bout it. but this baby can work like a doll when need to and work like a viscous dog when it has to.
This is my first AMD processor and my first Desktop. Im loving it
