AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T Black Edition

AMD's Phenom™ II processors combine an impressive palette innovative technologies into six cores of preeminent processing that will take you farther and get you there faster without getting bogged down along the way. From its multi-core capacity, its ultra efficient memory handling, to its dynamic power management, this high-end processor is everything you could possibly want and more without being high priced.

CPU Performance
The flagship feature of this processor is speed. Designed and built to optimize performance through faster processing efficiently working behind the scenes to keep you in top form whether you're working, gaming, or enjoying some down time with your favorite high-def entertainment.

Turbo Core Technology
Six cores give you awesome overall performance, but what about those times when you really need speed over power? With turbo core technology, this processor automatically channels resources from six cores to three turbo-charged cores. It also adjusts frequency speed from six cores at 3.2 GHz to 3.6GHz on the three turbo-charged cores so you have serious speed when and where you need it.

Balanced Smart Cache
AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T Black Edition supports either 4MB or 6MB of shared L3 cache and 512K of L2 cache per core. You benefit from quick retrieval of frequently accessed data so you're never stuck spinning your wheels.

Integrated Memory Controller
Supporting a broad range of memory types, the high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller also enhances system speed. With up to 17.1GB/s of memory bandwidth for DDR2 and up to 21 GB/s of memory bandwidth for DDR3, you've got superior data transfer rates.

Dual Dynamic Power Management
For the ultimate control over energy use. Dual Dynamic Power Management uses separate power planes for cores and the memory controller enabling on-demand memory in conjunction with less power consumption.

HyperTransport™ Technology
Created to increase communication speeds between integrated computer, server, and embedded system circuits - and including networking and telecommunications equipment - the benefits of hypertransporting are point-to-point communication at high speeds with less latency.

Direct Connect Architecture
One more way to improve system performance and efficiency, Direct Connect helps to eliminate front-side bus bottlenecks by directly connecting the processor core to the memory, the I/O subsystem, and other processors via high bandwidth Hypertransport™ links. This architecture allows for the memory controller to be located on the processor instead of the motherboard, thereby reducing latency.

Cool'n'Quiet™ Technology
Energy efficiency benefits everyone by reducing power usage, reducing energy costs, and improving PC performance. AMD's Cool'n'Quiet Technology not only offers energy saving benefits, it also enables space-saving smaller form factors.

By responding dynamically to user demands, AMD processors can adjust frequencies and enable or disable portions of the processor as they are needed. This results in less energy used, less heat produced, and more efficient overall operation.

Hardware Virtualization
AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T Black Edition processor provides support for virtualization technology for robust platforms offering a scalable virtualization environment. Also known as AMD-V™, this set of hardware extensions enables better use of resources helping to improve the effectiveness of clients, servers, and data centers. The benefits of AMD-V include more efficient creation of virtual machines simultaneously running multiple operating systems, more improved application responsiveness when switching between virtual machines, accelerated application performance through memory management, enabling live migration of virtual machines, and improved integrity and security.
