Phenom II X6 1090T is going to be the fastest six-core AMD desktop microprocessor once it's released at the end of April or in May 2010. Running at 3.2 GHz, or 200 MHz slower than Phenom II X4 965 (the fastest quad-core CPU as of March 2010), the 1090T will offer dynamic acceleration, which should make it as fast as the 965 when running non-multithreaded applications. Even more, according to early reports, the 1090T will be released as a "Black Edition" CPU, i.e. it will have unlocked clock multiplier. All other 1090T processor features will be no different from other Phenom II processors. Prices for this processor were recently posted in two different online stores, and in both cases the price was around $300 before taxes.

According to AMD, it has two IMCs, one for DDR2 and one for DDR3, as the other Phenom II CPUs.

If this sheet wrong, did AMD remove DDR2 support. It seems unlikely they re-designed the un-core from the previous CPUs in this family.

Response: As far as I know, Phenom II has only one memory controller, that supports DDR2 and DDR3 memory. I corrected the page - it says now DDR2/DDR3 instead of just DDR3.

Though I can't recollect where I read that the X6 would work on an AM2+ board. AMD's site just says AM3, so maybe they just jumped the gun and were mistaken.

Response: It will work on socket AM2+ board if the board has proper BIOS support.

Backwards compatibility

Posted by: Farraday

I can now confirm that the new x6 Phenoms do not work in AM2+ motherboards with SB600.

I tested in 5 different motherboards with 790*X + SB600 and none will boot, even with the latest BIOS, including the 'flagship' models of their day from Gigabyte and ASUS.

Unfortunately AM2+/SB600 is not an upgrade path.

I am using this proceesor on an Asus M4A785D-M -PRO (785G) Socket AM2+ along with 4 Gb of corsair xms2 (DDR2) CL4 memory and it runs like a dream, although not the best possible setup with Ati crossfire also running there isn't much my system cant advice BUY IT!

I was proven wrong some time ago by Gigabyte !
They released a BIOS update that made their GA-MA790FX-DQ6 flagship from almost 4 yeas ago!

I bought it when the first Athlon X2 6000+ came out - Dual Core, 3GHz, 2x1Mb L2, 125W - and it ran almost non stop since then, first with the 6000+, then with an 125W Phenom (I) and now, for about 6 months, with an Phenom II X6 1090T - Six Core, 3.2GHz, 125W !

Picture: The venerable GA-MA790FX-DQ6 with an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and 8GB DDR2 ECC Registered running Debian x64 (almost) non stop.

Using PhenomMsrTweaker, I can undervolt down to 0.7875V @ 800mhz. CPU-Z reads 0.672V. Draws about 25 watts according to the UPS. 9.440 watts according to Gigabyte Easy Energy Saver. Disabling even up to 5 cores doesn't lower power consumption any further. Just upgraded from a 4850e (also undervolted), the extra 15 watts at idle is something I wish I don't have to pay for.
