AMD's Phenom II X6 listed in Europe as well
Update: Phenom II X6 1090T BE for €285
The guys at ati-forum.de have spotted new AMD six-core listings at Norwegian retailer/e-tailer Microplex that show the new AMD Phenom II X6 1055T and 1090T listed for 1595 and 2295 Norwegian krones. Unfortunately, Microplex is not sure about the delivery date, but has listed a bit more interesting specs including a Turbo mode for both CPUs.
As we wrote before, the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition works at 3.2GHz, has a total of 9MB of cache (3MB L2 and 6MB L3), and has a TDP of 125W. This one has a Turbo mode that overclocks it to 3.6GHz and is currently listed at Microplex for 2295 Norway Kroner which is around €285.
The lower clocked AMD Phenom II X6 1055T has the same 9MB of cache, same 125W TDP but works at 2.8GHz with a 3.3GHz Turbo mode. Unlike the 1090T BE this one doesn't have an unlocked multiplier, but has a lower 1595 Norway Kroner price tag, which is around €198.
We are quite sure that other European retail/e-tail shops will join up soon but it's nice to have an idea about the price.

Update: We were contacted by AMD European representative and the company claims that these prices are not official as AMD still hasn't determined the final pricing for these parts.
