    Crysis / Terran X3 are old benchmarks - did they even make use of all 6 cores?

    I would of liked to have seen Dirt 2 & other DX11 benchmarks, as DX 11 take's advantage of multiple cores.

    Also theirs a new Bios: 604 for the Asus Crosshair IV Formula that increases overclocking considerably. :D

    Nice review. Shame that the CPU isn't as good as I expected it to be. Hopefully in a few months the price will drop and I'll snap one up.

    Hope you review more X6 CPUs when they are released.

    Disappointing; even in highly-threaded benchmarks (most interesting to me being Cinebench, since I use C4D) the 930 appears to remain the better value.

    It's getting a bit rediculous how far behind Intel AMD are. Even with 2 extra cores they're struggling to keep up with what is a revision of some 2 year old technology.

    At least they're competetively priced.

    Shame. It was such a promising chip.

    Another negatively biased AMD review from bit-tech.net, I am not surprised anymore. Only 2 game tests, only medium resolution, but strictly negative conclusions. Do yourself a favor and read some other web-sites.
    From Overclock3D.net:
    "Anyone who has an opinion to voice, and with hardware that's everybody, has long held the belief that games don't take advantage of extra cores enough to justify spending your cash on anything other than a mental dual-core. All of our results showed this belief to be absolute rubbish. The Dirt 2 test had the stock AMD Phenom II X6 1090T beating our 4GHz i7 930 system, despite giving up 800MHz in processing power, having dual rather than tri-channel RAM, and being priced at a similar level."
    bit-tech.net you stink!!!

    How is a review that shows a chip in a price range similar to another that performs on average 15% slower accross the board when it's got more cores make the review biased in favour of the intel chip?? All it means is that the intel architecture ia still better and will be until amd decide to produce something different. Ithought it was a very nice review and the chip is certainly a good buy in terms of how mug performance you get vs the power it uses. At this price though it should be quicker...

    Hm. I just skimmed through 8 other reviews on the interwebs and none of them had the 1090T getting creamed as badly as BT. Not even AT, which is a very Intel-friendly website.

    just because Bit-Tech reviews do not cast AMD in a good light doesn't mean they stink.

    It just means you stink of being a fanboy.

    Well i am quite excited, about this being a normal person with a family and what not, the price range of the intels are too much for myself but the amd`s are just perfectly priced. But again i would like to see a few benchies where it is being tested more. I am sure bit-tech will do that for us again soon.

    Because:
    "ASUS has started to distribute a new BIOS, 0602 – this actually provides degraded performance as well as issues with Turbo core. Please encourage press to use the 0505 BIOS that can be found on the FTP."
