AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition, 125W, AM3, 9MB Cache, 3200MHz
From the Manufacturer
As AMD's premier processor, the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition sets a new bar for PC performance. With six cores and a blazing 3.2 GHz clock speed, the processor is designed to handle all of the latest and most demanding software. It also features an unlocked multiplier that gives you the option of overclocking the chip for faster performance. Compatible with motherboards with an AM2+ or AM3 socket, the 1090T is an ideal processor for enthusiasts who value flexibility and performance.
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 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.
Unlocked Multiplier for Powerful Overclocking
If you're an enthusiast looking to push the limits of PC performance, the Phenom II X6-1090T makes it easier than ever to overclock your system. The unlocked multiplier allows you to manually increase the chip's frequency far beyond its stock values. You can achieve the best results by combining your processor with a reliable motherboard, high-performance SDRAM, and an effective cooling system. With the right combination, you'll be able to overclock your chip to unprecedented speeds.
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 fewer 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 X 6 1090T 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 1090T Six-Core Processor is backed by a three-year warranty.

Top customer reviews
I would not recommend purchasing this part new in 2016, but if you can find a part used, it will perform nearly as well as the FX-6300. Single-threaded performance and power consumption are slightly lower on the 1090T as opposed to the newer FX part, but overall performance hasn't changed much since then.
With the current buzz about the new AMD 8320's and 8350's, I felt some "pressure" to push the CPU further. For the last month, I've been running without any hiccups whatsoever at 3.9Ghz (19.5 times the 200 Mhz CPU core) and couldn't be happier. Keep in mind, that is 22% beyond the base 3.2Ghz rating and my system hasn't shown any signs of issue. For now I couldn't be happier despite a little admitted envy for the new chip!
If you're looking for a solid performer that you can easily push beyond the base performance stats and establish a solid platform for your gaming, media or work system... pick one of these up now!
This thing can handle anything you throw at it and some more. For gaming, this is more than enough to keep up with any of the latest games. I have yet to find a game that I am unable to play at high or ultra high settings. The few games that do push the 1090t would be Crysis and Metro 2033, but they are known to push your build. Also, gaming depends on the graphics card you have as well, so I may be holding back the Thuban from its full potential. As far as editing goes, the 1090t can render videos like it's nothing. I can render a 5-minute long, 720p video in less than 10 minutes. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great processor for a low price, and now that the Bulldozers are going to be released soon, you can bet on the Phenom II six-cores to drop in price, so make sure you pick one of these up.
One other thing, the 1090t with its stock cooler may be a little noisy to some people, but if you're playing games, listening to music, or have headphones on, it's not a big deal and is nothing to worry about. If the computer is idle, you can hear the fan a little, but it's nothing a little music couldn't fix. Although when you're gaming or doing some heavy processing, that's where the stock fan can be quite annoying. So if having a super quiet PC is your thing, make sure to look into more quiet after-market coolers or liquid cooling.

I could probably drop back to 4 cores and pass 4ghz if needed, but for what I do with my computer:
I use it stock...with cool and quiet on, and enable turbo boost.
It makes for great general purpose workstation with plenty of cores on the side for running a modest Linux Virtual Machine when needed and having lots of Windows Applications open at once while watching a movie in a second monitor :)
I'm a hobbyist with software like Blender and Gimp...for the extremely low cash layout of this processor it is VERY adequate for experimenting with 3d rendering.
I enjoy the Occasional 3d game (WoW, Everquest, Console Ports like Assassin's Creed/Batman)...this is plenty of processor for the titles I enjoy.
If you have an old AMD 2X or 3X rig laying around that can take this processor as an upgrade...it's money well spent :)
The 6 real cores are highly optimized, can be easily overclocked (I've overclocked mine slightly to 3.6 GHz, but 4.0+ speeds are easily achievable), and stay cool. I've paired it with a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus cooler and this thing just keeps on going.
Yes, the newest FX Vishera CPUs are slightly better than this one, but it's not worth dropping 180+ dollars for 10% performance improvement. I wish AMD would update their performance line, instead of letting Intel create a monopoly on the market.
