AMD Introduces New Desktop Chips

Paul Lilly

AMD this week announced a couple of new processors, fleshing out both its Phenom II X6 and Phenom II X2 lines for the desktop.

First up is the Phenom II X6 1075T. Built on a 45nm manufacturing process, this one slips right in under AMD's flagship 1090T and above the entry-level 1055T. It comes clocked at 3GHz with a Turbo Core speed of 3.5GHz, otherwise it shares the same traits as other X6 parts, including HyperTransport 3.0, 3MB L2 cache, 6MB shared L3 cache, and a 125W TDP. Look for the 1075T to sell for less than $250.

AMD also outed its dual-core Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition chip. It comes with an unlocked multiplier and runs at 3.3GHz. Other features include 1MB total L2 cache, 6MB shared L3 cache, HyperTransport 3.0 support, and a maximum TDP of 80W. This one is set to ship for just over $100.
