Exciting bit of news for the AMD Thuban's, if you are planning to install them, and who isn't;
Bahrain-based seller ADVANTI is claiming to have the official price tags of two Phenom II X6 (hexa-core) models which AMD will release next month. First up, there's the X6 1055T processor, which is clocked at 2.8 GHz and is supposed to cost just $199, and next, the 1090T Black Edition, which features a stock frequency of 3.2 GHz and would go for $295 - three times less than Intel's 3.33 GHz Core i7 980X.
Both the X6 1055T and 1090T Black Edition (unlocked multiplier on this one) come in an AM3 package, have a 125W TDP, and 9MB of cache (3MB L2 & 6MB L3).
In addition to the two chips mentioned, AMD is expected to also roll out (around April 27), the Phenom II X6 1035T (2.6 GHz) and the X6 1075T (3.0 GHz).
