Production microprocessors

Although pre-launch news stories speculated about possible launch of up to 5 six-core processors, 1035T, 1055T, 1075T and 1090T, only two of them were introduced on April 27 - 1055T with 125W Thermal Design Power (TDP) and 1090T Black Edition. Around May 10, AMD posted information on the third member of six-core Phenom II family - model 1055T with 95 Watt TDP. As stated by AMD website, the processor will be offered in OEM and Boxed versions. It's expected that 1055T 95 Watt version will have the same price as 125 Watt version.

There are two different versions of Phenom II X6 1055T processor - HDT55TWFK6DGR with 95 Watt Thermal Design Power (TDP), and this HDT55TFBK6DGR with 125 Watt TDP. In addition to different TDP, this microprocessor also has lower maximum operating temperature and slightly higher range of operating core voltages than the 95 Watt version of 1055T. All other features of 95 Watt and 125 Watt versions of this model are alike - 2.8 GHz core frequency, 3 MB level 2 cache, 6 MB level 3 cache, compatibility with DDR3 memory, and, new for X6 family, Turbo Core feature, that boosts core frequency of active when half or more cores are idle.

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.

Thuban-core support in old AM2+ motherboards with SB600

I can confirm that Thuban-core Phenom II X6 works in older motherboards with AM2+/SB600.

Gigabyte released an update for their GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard (SB600) that adds Thuban support and other goodies, like core "unlock" and K10 line-specific settings.

Previously, the party line was that SB600 won't support X6 Phenom IIs and, indeed, I tried to put X6 in some AM2+/SB600 motherboards and it didn't even pass POST.

I don't know if this a feat of engineering/lts from Gigabyte or technical compatibility was all along, but movo manufacturers were unwilling to support out-dated products.
