AMD Phenom II X6 Black 1090T 

Released April, 2010
  • 3.2 GHz
  • Hexa core
  • Unlocked
5.2 Out of 10

What we have here is pretty much a four-core Deneb.

The AMD Phenom II X6 1090T didn't do all that bad though as it was able to perform better than the Intel Core i7-930 processor and wasn't too far behind the Intel Core i7-975!

Reviews Word on the street for the AMD Phenom II X6 Black 1090T


8.0
Loaded with six processing cores, the 3.2-GHz Phenom II X6 1090T is the most powerful consumer processor AMD has ever released, and it's compellingly priced (at just $285).

8.5
Essentially it's simply two extra cores added onto a four-core Phenom, rather than the more comprehensive re-working involved with Intel's six-core Gulftown.

9.3
So yeah I like it Good price, Good Overclocking ability, More Cores, Higher BUS speeds like x 250 and up, increased RAM speed compatibility I have run up to 2000, oh and yet another stock AMD cooler to put in the parts bin:thumb.

Overall

8.8 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

The Sandra Processor Multi-Media benchmark has been a long time favorite of ours to look at floating point performance on processors, so let's see how Intel's latest 32nm mobile processor does!
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
Of course, Deneb was essentially a 45nm respin of AMD's 65nm Barcelona chip.
by Tech Radar (Sep, 2010)
Sony Vegas 9.0d was only running at 80% load across all 12 threads, but that was enough to give us a 22% performance boost over the Intel Core i7 975 processor.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)

Socket

We then take that file and output it as a Blu-ray disc using Sony Vegas 9.0d. The output is a 1920x1080 60i Blu-ray Disc ISO image.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
When the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor was running at full load the multiplier jumped up to 16 and the overall clock frequency is now 3.21GHz, as you can see from the screen shot above.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
The test system was run in dual-channel memory mode at 1600MHz with 9-9-9-24 1T memory timings.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)

Multicore

In the x264 and Cinepack tests the 1090T really shines and bares comparison with Intel's lovely Core i7 920, which may have two fewer cores but has two threads per core, giving it effectively eight, plus a 2MB fatter L3 cache.
by Tech Radar (May, 2010)
There's no extra over the four-core Phenom here, unlike Intel's 980X whose two extra cores come replete with extra L3.
by Tech Radar (May, 2010)
Shut down or throttle back some core and you've more headroom for the remaining cores.
by Tech Radar (May, 2010)

Performance

While we are on the subject of performance, AMD Turbo CORE technology is also a nice touch as most of the time you aren't using your PC for heavy tasks and the clock frequency boost is nice to have.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
The game has a built-in benchmark that is very tough on video cards!
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
It's a wolf in sheep's clothing basically, if you don't see any synthetic benchmarks, you'll just say to yourself,"damn...this is fast.
by PROBN4LYFE (Nov, 2011)

Applications

For this game VSync was turned off, but Antialiasing was turned on and set to 8x for better image quality.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
For example, in gaming we saw a little performance boost here and there, but nothing significant at the resolutions we actually play games on.
by Legit Reviews (Apr, 2010)
The game developers need to stop porting games over from consoles and walking away from them!

This CPU has never let me down so far, even now, 5 years since I've bought it.
I love this cpu.
