AMD Phenom II X6 "Thuban" Clock Speeds Leaked
 
Far ahead of schedule, details on AMD's hexa-core Phenom II (Thuban) lineup has come to light, courtesy of a motherboard manufacturer's CPU support list.

The list includes the codenamed 1035T and 1055T models, and from previous AMD information we know the top end chip will be the 1075T and a dual TDP variation of the 1055T. The product lineup upo... [ Read full article ]

I don't know that much about CPU architecture, but I hope this will give intel a run for it's money, and consumers a better way to spend theirs.

itll probably do better on multi socket boards vs intel, but for the price i say its going to be interesting.....the 6 core cut down version might be a killer around the 150 dollar mark, liek the 4 core athlon II's around the 50 dollar mark :)

This won't come close to the performance of the 6 core intel but it will be more than half the cost. AMD is helping to push more cores for the masses while with intel only the super rich or the insane can afford 6 core CPUs(atleast for now). AMDs highest end quad core is priced in Intels low end dual cores. I bet AMD is going to price their 6 core CPUs where intel prices their quad core CPUs.

Not to mention you can put this CPU in a very old motherboard.

I think it would be awesome to build a 6 core 8GB dual SSD in raid 0 with the highest powered 1 slot low profile GPU on a mini ITX motherboard in a tiny case. Add a slim blueray drive too :p. Most expensive yet most powerful tiny computer.

I doubt it.

$50? Try double that, on the low side: Newegg.ca - Computer Hardware,CPUs / Processors,Processors - Desktops,AMD,Athlon II X4

But sometimes the Athlon II are slower than the dual core counterparts. So depending on what you use it for, more cores may not be such a good thing.

And I have a feeling Mark's gonna come in here so I'll say it for him, even though I don't agree on it. "Intel's lineup overclocks better and is much easier to overclock."

The question is ( IMO ) will a 6 core around maybe 250$ will out perform a quad HT or a dual HT or a qud no HT around the same price tag. If yes then AMD have a good contender to all 1156 and bellow from Intel. If it's about the same then...AMD have more bread to eat. I love AMD but I am not a fan boy and what I want to is to see them come a little bit more competitive to give better choice to the mainstream costumer.

well...for 95w tdp....and the decent power saving options(when enabled), it should be very nice. who wouldve tought me,you or the next dude would have a six core chip...within a 'rather low budget'...a few years back? :)

I certainly would have. I'd be surprised if 12-core or more CPUs aren't mainstream within a decade.
