AMD Phenom II X6 1075T BE Shows Up Online
Ever since the AMD Phenom II X6 series of processors launched we have only gotten two products to buy. There is a third, the 1035T, but it is OEM only and no telling when it can be bought separately. However, it appears that a new six-core processor will be hitting the market in the form of the Phenom II X6 1075T BE. Some e-tailers are already showing this chip as in stock and ready to purchase. The 1075T is coming in clocked at 3.0GHz so it fits right in the middle of the 2.8GHz 1055T and the 3.2GHz 1090T. Like the 1090T, the 1075T is a Black Edition model which means it has an unlocked multiplier so the pricing will be closer to the 1090T than the 1055T.
The 1075T BE has shown up at some e-tailers in Europe with a price between €230 and €240 while in the U.S. it is priced at $267. While the six-core AMDs shine the best in heavily multithreaded programs that will take advantage of all six cores, it is still mighty tempting for AMD users to pick one up for a cheap price compared to the Intel offering.
