AMD Phenom X6 1100T and X4 840 tested - oc/uv

Review: Speed updates, one Phenom is an Athlon

We have already stated the specs, so here the CPU-z screenshots.

When Turbo is enabled on the Phenom II X6 then the idle voltage is quite high.

Undervoltage:

The Phenom II X6 1100T is still nicely under-voltaged. With 0.1V less, it's still stable, but of course you need to disable Turbo.

The Phenom II X4 840 aka Athlon II X4 650 disappoints. With its upped VCore of 1.4000V it only manages 1.3250V, which will still shave off some watts but of course 3.2GHz does need power.

Overclocking:

This Phenom was the first we got to 4GHz, booting up with more than 4GHz was possible, but Prime95 was not stable. Our board is not the greatest overclocker but the results are still impressive for a six core CPU.

The Phenom II X4 840 managed a stable 3.7GHz @1.5125V.

Conclusion:
don't be fool and better keep your €199,75,Bulldozer is coming very soon.

Those graphs are just awful, why not to put names of CPUs on left instead of that colour scale. It looks very noobish and takes ages to find what color stands for.

As always the CPU benchmarks always suck.
You can't recognize one cpu from another because there are 20 tested at one time and all have similar color.

Don't do these reviews fudzilla, because they suck.

Why don't I see atleast the lowest end I7 on here?

I kind of wanted to see how it stacked up. :(

I have the 1055t in my system and I am still really happy with it but man... can't wait for the bulldozer! :)

Test less cpus. Put names on graphs. Larger grapghs.

Yeah, those charts are a little hard to comprehend... would something like this be better?

I made it with the "benchmark summary" data(top of page 4), so it should have the same info as that chart...

Wait, why are the tests performed on Windows XP? I can't think of a single logical reason for that...
