Thuban clocks leaked
2.6GHz and 2.8GHz
Hexus stumbled upon an interesting AMD Thuban spec sheet, Courtesy of Gigabyte. According to Gigabyte's CPU support list, the Thuban will ship in at least two flavours, PhenomII X6 1055T and 1035T.
The 1055T is clocked at 2.8GHz, while the 1035T runs at 2.6GHz. The clocks are quite low compare to Intel's Core i7 980X, but AMD is expected to launch faster versions as well. The 1075T, for example, is expected to hit the 3GHz mark.
Unfortunately we still don't know much about Thuban pricing. AMD will probably offer them at somewhat more reasonable prices than Intel's $999 Core i7 980X, but in any case it will be some time before six-cores become commonplace.
