AMD ships two new speedy Phenoms

by on07 December 2010

3.3GHz six-core and 3.4GHz BE dual-core
We talked about AMD’s new Phenom II X6 1100T and Phenom II X2 565 Black Edition processors several weeks ago, but now have finally started shipping just in time for holiday shoppers.

The Callisto-based Phenom II X2 565 BE is a dual-core part with an unlocked multiplier. It’s clocked at 3.4GHz and aimed at users looking for an affordable and overlockable processor. It should retail at about €110, so it’s offers relatively good value.

However, the Thuban-based Phenom II X6 1100T is quite a bit more interesting. This 125W part is clocked at 3.3GHz, but it can overclock to 3.7GHz via Turbo Core. The rest of the spec was unchanged from the 1090T and it’s available in Germany for as little as €241. All things considered, this is nothing short of a bargain, as Intel’s quad-core 2.6GHz Core i7 920 costs about the same.
