AMD 1095T Hex  Core Review

Test Setup and Overclocking

Test Setup

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @ Stock and 4.1GHz
ASUS Crosshair 890FX
G.Skill ECO 2x2GB Low volt @ 1600MHx
Noctua NH-D14 with MX-3
HIS Radeon HD5870
Corsair HX850
Windows 7 64 Bit Ultimate


If there is one thing AMD have always been good at it's providing great performance at a sensible price. Overclocking allows us to gain even greater performance without any outlay. So hopefully if the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T will overclock well it should be the bargain of the Century.

Firstly we need to establish what is the maximum Bus Speed obtainable with this configuration. It didn't take long to find the limit at a very impressive 265.9 MHz. This should allow us to break 4GHz.

Having established what the maximum Bus Speed available is it's time to find the maximum available speed from the processor. Obviously with this being a very new processor we haven't had huge amounts of experience or even know what to expect. Nonetheless it wasn't long before we so a hugely impressive 4269.5 MHz. Not very stable, but it definitely has potential.

Striking a balance between the multiplier and the Bus Speed took a lot of tweaking and eventually, although we definitely feel there is more to be had, we settled for a 4110GHz stable speed.

4.1 GHz out of a Six Core processor is mightily impressive and we'll use this for our overclocked testing.

Great stuff. How does it fair in our testing.

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
