AMD’s Thuban still only retails as two Phenom II X6 CPUs – the 1055T and 1090T BE. A further 1035T is OEM only, with a widespread release of both 1035T and 1075T having long been anticipated. Finally, there are signs of Phenom II X6 1075T appearing online. As the nomenclature suggests, the 3.0 GHz 1075T fits in right between the $200 2.8 GHz 1055T and the $300 3.2 GHz 1090T. However, the 1075T is a Black Edition CPU, much like the 1090T BE, and pricing is expected end up closer to the 1090T BE, at around $265.

Finally, there are signs of Phenom II X6 1075T appearing online. As the nomenclature suggests, the 3.0 GHz 1075T fits in right between the $200 2.8 GHz 1055T and the $300 3.2 GHz 1090T. However, the 1075T is a Black Edition CPU, much like the 1090T BE, and pricing is expected end up closer to the 1090T BE, at around $265.

In Europe, the 1075T BE has appeared at multiple etailers, with the price being between 230 and 240. In North America, the price is listed as $267.

With Intel’s 2.93 GHz Core i7 870 dropping to $290, and the unlocked multiplier i7 875K available at $330, the Phenom II X6 1075T will be consistently outperformed in any applications which do not use all 6 cores. For heavily multithreaded applications however, the AMD CPU will be good value. However, a (relatively) affordable six core CPU with an unlocked multiplier at $265 is a very tempting proposition, especially for users with AMD systems.

The 1050T will continue to be the best price/performance option, and we hope for a 1035T release soon in the $175 price range. That will truly bring six-core CPUs to the mainstream, priced against Intel’s dual-core CPUs.
