Longing for a quicker member of AMD's Phenom II X6 family? Don't hold your breath, says Fudzilla—the existing Phenom II X6 1090T will reportedly remain AMD's top of the line until "at least" the first quarter of next year. In the same news post, Fudzilla reports that a new low-end model will see the light of day late this quarter: the Phenom II X6 1045T.
Word is that the 1045T will run at 2.7GHz with a 3.2GHz Turbo Core speed, 9MB of total cache, and a 95W thermal envelope. We're not talking about much of a step down from the existing Phenom II X6 1055T, then, since AMD clocks that chip at 2.8GHz, or 3.3GHz when Turbo Core kicks in. The 1055T does have a higher 125W TDP, though.
One detail is missing from the Fudzilla story. AMD already offers a 2.6GHz Phenom II X6 1035T, but that part seems confined to pre-built PCs. (Newegg sells a couple from HP and Gateway.) The 1045T may or may not suffer the same fate. If this report is accurate, we won't find out for sure until September.
