AMD 1095T Hex  Core Review

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Up Close

Firstly let's take a look at the processor itself. Not the worlds most interesting thing as it looks like pretty much any other AMD processor. Which is a good thing because, as we said before it allows you to just drop it into your current motherboard and use your current cooler.

AMD 1095T Hex Core Review Die Overclocking

You can see the die on the right here. We have each of the six full cores along with 512KB of L2 cache per core. Below this is 6MB of L3 cache which should help keep the processor running flat out as much as possible.

These feed into the System Request Interface and then the Crossbar Switch.

Finally the data is moved to the Memory and the HyperTransport technology link. 

The memory when run at DDR3-1333 provides nearly 13GB/s of bandwidth and the HyperTransport link can give up to 19.2GB/s of peak bandwidth per processor.

The rest of the important information is :

64KB Instruction + 64KB Data L1 cache per core.

45nm SOI technology

AMD Balanced Smart Cache
AMD Dedicated Multi-cache
AMD Virtualization Technology
AMD PowerNow 3.0 Technology
AMD Dynamic Power Management
AMD CoolCore Technology
Multi-Pount Thermal Control

And of course the aforementioned AMD Turbo CORE Technology.

Before we move on to the testing, here are two slides from AMD that hopefully explain some of the finer details.

I Hunta x
All i can say is wow to the warhead benchmark.

Well I think im set on what to upgrade to for my collage media course next year, 1090t (Unless the new 32nm AMD Quadys kick major ass) + 5870 + Crosshair IV Formula/Extreme (Mabey, waiting to see the other new chipset boards) + undecided ram .

Just 1 quick Q.

What were the load temps at the test settings??Quote

Set as well and wow...was not expecting it to be this good, Thunderbird 2 is go!

Just wondering if the extreme has that load line calibration issue and if the extreme has a large edge in the overclocking department over the formula.

Same question as poster above. Quote
