AMD readies faster Thubans

1100T or 1100T BE? If not unlocked, why bother ...

3.6GHz Deneb coming, too

AMD is planning to introduce new flagship six-core and quad-core processors over the coming weeks.

The Thuban portfolio will be expanded by the fastest AMD six-core to date, the 3.3GHz Phenom II X6 1100T. Unsurprisingly, the 1100T has a 125W TDP and with Turbo Core overclocking it will happily run at 3.7GHz, which is quite impressive. Power-conscious consumers will also get something new, the 1065T with a 95W TDP rating. It is clocked at 2.9GHz, or 3.4GHz with Turbo Core.

Interestingly, 1090T prices have come down by around 10 percent in recent days, which might imply that the 1100T is just around the corner and that it will retail under $300.

In addition to the new Thubans, AMD will also introduce the fastest Deneb yet. The Phenom II X4 975 is clocked at 3.6GHz, making it the highest clocked quad-core desktop CPU on the market.
