Product Summary & Final Conclusions:

It's no secret that AMD prices their processors aggressively against their Intel counterparts, it's great for the consumer because it means we get the most bang for our buck. I am super excited about the new Phenom II X6 1075T. Previously when choosing a hex-core AMD processor, one only had the choice for the X6 1055T priced around $200, or the flagship model the X6 1090T BE priced around $300. The X6 1075T fills that void right in the middle, it delivers outstanding performance and is an excellent value for its price.

I hate to lump the discussion of all the other processors into one, but the reality is they are all 100 MHz increases over existing models, and there's not a heck of a lot to say. It's nice to get a little extra speed for the same cost as what a previous top model was priced at. For people that don't want to spend the money on a six-core processor, there is PLENTY of performance and value in the quad, triple, and even dual core models. Many gamers continue to rave about the Phenom II X2 models, they are extremely affordable and when gaming offer almost the same performance as more expensive chips. What they save on the processor they can put towards a better video card. There is also that chance that one could unlock some extra cores on the X2 processors too.

While the multiplier is locked on the Phenom II X6 1075T, any decent enthusiast motherboard will allow you overclock via the HT bus (some people still call it the FSB just out of convenience). I was pleasantly surprised to see my chip hit a solid 4.2 GHz, and with some better cooling I bet I could go a little higher. Even at stock speeds the X6 1075T is only 200 MHz slower core speed than the flagship X6 1090T, and only 100 MHz slower when turbo kicks in... yet its price is significantly cheaper than one would expect.
