AMD 1090T Six Core Review

3D Mark, Shift, Dirt and Warhead

AMD 1095T Hex  Core Review

*Please note that our gaming tests are 1920x1200, maximum in game settings with 8xMSAA.

3D Mark Vantage

Following on from our PC Mark Vantage results, the other major player from the Futuremark stable is equally happier with Clock Speed grunt rather than pure cores. Our P-Score graph is handily split with the overclocked variants of the three processors on test easily winning out, the edge just going to the i7 930 this time.

For the gaming tests we'll concentrate on the i7 930 vs the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T.

Need For Speed Shift

Wow, look at that. NFS Shift definitely loves the combination of the Radeon HD5870 and the X6 1090T. An advantage of 15FPS average is enormous in anyones books.

Dirt 2

15 FPS average in Need For Speed Shift not good enough for you? The overclocked 1090T has a 23FPS advantage in Dirt 2 with even the stock clocked one absolutely spanking our 4GHz 930.

Crysis Warhead

Crysis Warhead responds as it always does to "the more the merrier". The major shock is that our average framerate shoes the overclocked i7 930 just edging ahead, yet the 1090T has triple the minimum framerate.

Despite what the graph shows the 1090T was a vastly smoother experience. That's why we log the data, but personal opinion says otherwise.

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

Wowzers, really nice review.

Having read some of the other major reviews I was going to steer clear. but now im not too sure.

Your numbers seem quite different (in games) to some of the other review sites... any idea why?Quote
