AMD Phenom II X6 1055T hits Retail in China; Pictured

In what seems to be a repeat of the Lynnfield release last year, where the Asian markets had Core i5/i7 products selling like hot cakes up to a month before the official release; it seems like the Asians – this time the Chinese in particular – are it at breaking release dates again. Expreview have spotted AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processors on the market, selling for RMB1999 ($293).

the Asian markets had Core i5/i7 products selling like hot cakes up to a

The 1055T CPUs are packaged in a rather undramatic, and questionably coloured purple, boxes. As expected, the 1055T is a 2.8 GHz product. The 1055T was rumoured to be either a 95W or a 125W product, so this detail seems to be missing from the pictures.

The flagship of the Phenom II X6 series at release would be the 1090T BE, clocked at 3.2 GHz, with Tubo Core at 3.6 GHz. The third and cheapest of the X6 CPUs would be the 1035T, clocked at 2.6 GHz, rumoured to be priced at $199.

The AMD Phenom II X6 CPUs are on schedule for release at the end of the month on April 26th.
