Six-core Phenoms listed Stateside

Cheap, as expected


AMD's
new six-core Phenom II X6 CPUs are expected to show up in retail within weeks and some US retailers have already listed the parts.

One retailer is taking pre-orders for the 1090T, clocked at 3.2GHz, at a rather tempting price of $318, here. Another e-tailer is listing the same chipat $350, but it's also offering the 2.8GHz Phenom II X6 1055T for $240, here.

We're expecting the Phenom II X6 to go on sale next month and when it does, it could spell trouble for Intel. Intel's Core i7 980X processor sells for 3.33GHz and the new Phenoms won't be able to catch up. However, the 980X costs $999 and it's mated to the costly X58 platform, i.e. pricey LGA 1366 motherboards and triple channel memory. AMD's six cores, on the other hand, don't mind running on cheap €100 boards.

Although Intel will retain the performance crown, AMD's six-cores will obviously be a great choice for enthusiasts and professionals who don't want to spend a small fortune on Intel's 980X.
