Great six core

By 

from Beverly Hills, CA

Comments about AMD 1055T Phenom II X6, 2.8 GHz (HDT55TWFK6DGR) OEM / Unboxed Processor:

I love AMD's 6 core and I do like the cheapest one (well, it used to be the cheapest), the 1055T. For a long time it was just the 1055T and the 1090T. These were for some time the only six core processors out there until the 1035T, 1075T, 1100T and a few others joined the two processors. The main difference between this and say a 1090T or an 1100T is that this is not a black edition processor. Now if you are not an overclocker and have no intention of raising the stock clocks then this is not a concern for you. But for those who demand the highest level of performance from their processor then a black edition processor is going to matter since it gives you more options through an unlocked multiplier in the bios. But overclocked or not, the 1055T and pretty much the entire AMD 6 core lineup will be really fast and allow you to do some incredible multitasking. The 1055T at the current moment can be purchased for 150 (one sale) to 180 (typical price). It's a great and capable processor.

Great processor for a multitasking rig

By 

from Highland Park, IL

Comments about AMD 1055T Phenom II X6, 2.8 GHz (HDT55TWFK6DGR) OEM / Unboxed Processor:

Powerful, extremely easy to overclock, unbelievable amount of raw computing power for the price. Outstanding value. Stock heatsink will do the job at stock speeds, but under full load on all cores for extended periods of time will cause it to spin very quickly, and the noise is too much. Not enough to deduct an egg, since I always purchase aftermarket heatsinks for my processors. It blows my mind that the average person can purchase this amount of performance for this price. I have mine running at 4.0ghz @ 1.475v under a Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme. Games flawlessly, smashes everything I throw at it. When I'm away from my computer I run either SETI or Rosetta with the BOINC client and with six 4.0 cores I can really burn through work units. I think my RAC will top out somewhere around 4000 or so in Rosetta. If you run heavily-threaded applications and don't want to shell out a ton of cash then this is the processor for you.
