AMD six-cores shipping
Starting at €199
Last week we reported that several retailers had jumped the gun and started selling AMD's Thuban six-cores and now the CPUs are officially out.
Of course not all retailers carry them yet, but they are here and consumers can get them and that's what matters. Also, they offer excellent value, so getting them sounds like a pretty good idea.
The 2.8GHz Phenom II X6 1055T is selling for just €199, while the unlocked 3.2GHz 1090T BE costs €299. Compared to Intel's 980X pricing, this is lunch money and they are even cheaper than many high-end quads.
