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.

I'm completely stable at 4.175GHz. Is it my final result? Probably not with my existing equipment, but I am extremely impressed with the result. My goal is still to get to 4.2GHz, but this is how I got here and the contributing factors.

AMD X6 Black Edition (3.2GHz)
Asus CrossHair IV Motherboard
16Gb of DDR3 1066 Ram
Corsair H50 CPU Cooler
Coolermaster HAF Full Tower
Asus 5870 1GB v2 Video Card

Step 1: Use TurboEvo software (included with Asus Crosshair)to auto overclock the CPU & Ram automatically in Windows 7. This is a good observational tool to find out which factors should be changed (Ratio/Multiplier, Bus, Voltage) and there respective limits. I used this tool with settings Extreme Overclock and Flexible Voltage Settings and got a 3.9GHz Result.

Step 2: Restart and Mod in Bios. The trick to overclocking is deciding whether to focus on increasing the bus or multiplier when reaching for that higher clock. This is answered in Step 1. The ram speed is the determining factor in this answer. My ram speed was 1333, and with my 4 sticks of 4gb (16 total) sucking up far more voltage than a single stick, increasing the cpu's bus speed would mean a higher memory speed requirement that my ram couldn't handle without a voltage increase.
So I left the cpu's bus at the default 200 setting and increased the multiplier, hoping to get a final clock speed of 4.3 or 4.4. After reading others overclocking experiences I decided not to set the voltage beyond 1.49. I also set my CPU/NB voltage at a 1.25. After numerous crashes and restarts, I ended up with a super stable clock of 4.

As of this writing (August 2011), AMD is about to launch the new Bulldozer line. Is this a reason for you to skip the Phenom II line, and particularly this processor? It depends. If you are one of those who always want the latest and most cutting-edge products, then you should wait. But if you want the best bang for the buck, then you should get an X6. Any computer product will no longer be the latest in a very short time anyway, so if you wait for the Bulldozers, you'll just postpone the moment when you won't have the latest or fastest any more. And the very fact that the AMD K10 line is at the end of its market cycle will ensure that you get awesome bargains for an excellent product - if you rush to get it while you can.

My PC is 8 months old now and the 1090T *was* bleeding-edge at the time (the 1100T was still hard to find back then, and the performance gain negligible anyway). It is still certainly more powerful than 95% of all PCs in use out there - and that is being conservative. Yes, if you are a gamer you will probably get better performance *for current titles* with an X4 970 quad-core, or an Intel Core i5 or i7. But I'm not a gamer, and I wanted a general-purpose PC that could serve my needs without worries for years to come, as hardware can be very expensive where I live and I can't afford to make frequent major upgrades just for sport. I've got exactly what I wanted, and I'm very happy.

Don't pay much heed to those who say that you only get real performance gains on a hexa-core if you use optimized multithreading apps, which are still few.

I ordered this through Amazon with 2 day shipping and it showed up two days later. I use this CPU in conjunction with an ASUS CHIV MOBO, 4gb of DDR3, a BFG Nvidia 9800 GTX+ OC, 32 gb high speed ssd and a 500gb 6gbs pair of data drives raided toge

This processor is really nice. I moved from an Athlon X2 2200 to this chip and the new 890 chipset. This thing screams! I run Folding@home 24/7, this processor has no issues with running multiple apps and processes. I play bfbc2 while encoding music and movies without a stutter 100fps+. This thing is energy efficient and cool.

The Black edition with an unlocked multiplier is the way to go! Super easy to OC! Once you go Black (edition!)you won't go back! I have mine currently overclocked and stable @4ghz, running a vcore of 1.356 and a CPU-NB of 1.22 at 2600 mhz with an HT of 1800. Using an all in one ECO ALC water cooling system I am stable with a maximum 100% temp of 41 c. Once I get a larger power supply and better ram I intend to 24/7 OC this to 4.2-4.3 ghz.

Having built out a few hundred machines I can honestly say, I like this processor. It's cheap, fast, and has AMZING OC potential. I Highly recommend this product.

Just bought one of these and have had the system running about a week. This CPU is something to get excited about, when you consider the price. Overclocked to 3.8 GHZ without breaking a sweat and without much difficulty I'm sure could push further. I have mine paired on an 890gx motherboard, 8gb ddr3 and a Corsair H50 Water Cooler - CPU doesnt break at sweat no matter what you throw at it. Running stress tests you can crank 4 cores up to 100 percent and still surf the web / listen to tunes / generally use your computer and you would never know its even performing a task. This thing is a tank for sure, couldn't be happier. Way to go AMD.
