E-tailer leaks Phenom II X6 prices

E-tailer leaks Phenom II X6 prices

AMD’s six-core Thuban processors will soon go head on against Intel’s Core i7s, if prices leaked by Bahrain-based online retailer Advanti are accurate. The folks at AlienBabelTech have encountered a posting on the e-tailer’s Facebook page, and the contents don’t leave much to the imagination:

We just received the official prices from AMD:

Phenom II X6 Six Core

1090T Black Edition: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 3.2 GHz Freq @ 295 USD

1055T: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 2.8 GHz Freq @ 199 USD

So, the fastest Phenom II X6 might end up priced a little bit higher than Intel’s Core i7-860 and identically to the freshly released Core i7-930. The rumored Phenom II X6 1055T, meanwhile, could fight it out with the Core i5-750.

AMD could very well be competitive on the performance front, especially if these six-core processors have that core "overclocking" feature we heard about last month. In either case, though, 125W thermal envelopes will look a little high next to the LGA1156 chips’ 95W TDPs.

Interestingly, this latest batch of leaked information doesn’t quite fit with last week’s rumors. A posting by TC Magazine last Wednesday hinted that the fastest Phenom II X6 would run at just 3GHz and bear a 1075T model number. The same story also mentioned a third Thuban processor, the 2.6GHz Phenom II X6 1035T.
