Advanced Micro Devices plans to refresh its lineup of high-performance central processing units (CPUs) in the fourth quarter of this year, X-bit labs has learnt. In particular, the company wants to introduce new top-of-the-range six-core chip as well as the fastest quad-core microprocessor. In addition, the company will further broaden the line of its Phenom II X6 "Thuban" products with a relatively affordable CPU.

In an attempt to boost performance of its six-core and quad-core processors in advance of the Holiday season, AMD intends to release two new six-core processors Phenom II X6 1100T (3.30GHz), which will be the fastest chip the company has to offer and Phenom II X6 1065T (2.90GHz), which will be the highest-performance six-core offering with 95W thermal design power. In addition, the company will itroduce its most powerful quad-core Phenom II X4 975 chip with 3.60GHz clock-speed. The chips are specifically aimed at the higher end of the market and will rise performance bar for AMD central processing units.

The forthcoming introduction of a faster six-core offering in Q4 2010 may indicate that Advanced Micro Devices is now seeing higher yields of six-core Phenom II X6 "Thuban" processors at Globalfoundries using 45nm SOI fabrication process. The further expansion of six-core product family with an expensive and mainstream parts is likely to slightly increase average selling prices and consequently revenues of AMD.

The good news: a 125W 3.6 GHz Phenom II X4; the 95W Phenom II X6 1065T.

The no news: still no 95W 3.2 GHz Phenom II X4.

If the application is single/dual or tri threaded ... half of Thuban get's slowed down while the other 3 core get to run at higher speeds.

at slightly higher speed you mean

@3.60 with that TDP Thubans already dont provide linear 10% task improvement

It's not of any kind of improvement we hadnt yet see with 1055T 95W and 1075T 125W (Black Ed.) in midst July. It's rather cheesy way to introduce yet something new but already seen "years ago" with first PII X4

And that Turbo feature is more of bug than a feature .... but nice (and necessary) thing to experiment how it could be used in future Bulldozer CPUs.

Damn I just bought the farm with a new 1090T and Asus Crossfire combo like always a little too late!

Should have waited for the 1100T but I bet it can be overclocked easy and I also bet these 1100Ts are nothing more than 1090Ts binned at a 100mhz more for all the good that will do!
