AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and 1055T Benchmarks

Q: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and 1055T Benchmarks

These seem to be just released so not expecting many results yet but im intrested to know how they compare to intel. And would they be worth getting? The cheaper one here is ?160, and the 1090 is ?250.
But i cant seem to find any decent bechmark results at the momment, any would be appreciated because im intrested in upgrading to this on my current motherboard.

I've been looking at some CPU's to add to one of my aging computers and I cannot work out the difference between the CPU's, I can only see difference in the Clock speed. I havn't gone to far into checking it's exact specs but that's all I have seen. Is there any real difference?

A:Difference between AMD 1055T, 1090T and 1100T

All of those chips use the same core so yes the difference is clockspeed. Note if you intend to install one of these in an old system, the board must support the 6 core cpus. Just because it is an am3 socket board does not mean it supports all am3 cpus.

Which one of these is better? I might be overclocking and there is a price difference of about 30 euros. So which should I consider to buy?

Thanks in advance

A:AMD Phenom II X6 1090T vs. AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black

They are very close in performance, some reviews indicate that the 1100T is a slightly better overclocker. The price difference in the U.S. is only $10, not sure there's 30 euros worth of difference though.

Hey guys, Been messing with my Phenom 1055t, have got it stable (kinda) around 3.81ghz, when i push it to 4004mhz it lasts about 10 seconds on 100% load torture test, also i notice in crysis warhead the graphics go all patchy when theres a crash incoming - how can i stabilize 4ghz? more voltage? im at 1.4875V atm with 14.00 multi and 286mhz fsb - spread spectrum for cpu on auto and Dram about 1525mhz

A:Phenom II X6 1055T Overclock

Have you lowered the ram speed/divider to remove the ram from the overclocking equation?

Next have you set the pci lock?

I would stop wasting time trying to get 4.0 when you are having problems at 3.81. Remember if it is not prime95 stable, it is a worthless overclock. You first need to find out where you start to get errors in prime95 before you attempt anything like 4gig.

FWIW I have my 965 overclocked to 4gig on stock voltage with C&Q enabled. It does take a while upping fsb by 1~2mzh and running stability tests.

ok, so ive done loads of surfing the net with regards to the above and i cant seem to find very much.
system specs first.
AMD Phenom II 1055T overclocked to 3.8gig

ASRock 990FX extreme 3 mobo
Gainward GTX470
120gig Mushkin Chronos SSD
1Tb 7200rpm HDD
windows 7 64bit HP

i bought, on a whim a AMD FX8150 8core. it was a really good price and i stupidly didnt do any research into it once the new CPU was in i left the stock clock speeds and ran a few benchmarks using pcmark vantage, pcmark 7 etc etc and saw absolutely no increase in performance what so ever. so, i ran a few games and monitored the FPS etc and i actually saw a drop in fps compared to my phenom II.
I tried to overclock the 8150 but the heat generation was horrendous, but for the short time i was able to use it i still didnt see any performance gain at all. i know already that games dont use many cores but i thought i would still see a performance gain anyway with the FX being a newer cpu with different architecture? in the cpu benchmark lists that are on the net the 8150 is supposed to be better than my trusty old phenom II?
what would u guys do? stick with the 8150 for future use? or keep the 1055t.
just so u know i use my rig for gaming.

A:OC 1055t Phenom vs FX8150

The bulldozer line was a disappointment and in some cases performed worse than say a t1090 or t1100. Bulldozer was superseded by the newer fx8350 which actually performs reasonably well; at least on par with a t1090 or t1100.

To answer your question, personally I would run the t1055 overclocked however that is me.

Hello everyone

I am intending to buy a Phenom II X6 1055T for my new system. I was originally intending to go for the Core i3 530 clocked at 2.93Ghz, but because the 1055T system would work out to be less than 100 more I am now considering going for it.

What I would like to know is whether I am missing something by thinking that the 1055T is the high end processor from AMD performing at a similar level of a Core i7 but priced almost the same as a mid range Intel processor (for example a Core i5 processor)

Any advice will be appreciated


A:What are people's views on the Phenom II X6 1055T?

I am putting together my new system together as we speak with the x6 1055T and the Asus Crosshair IV Formula. Here is a review using those two components. Check out the performance levels of the 1095T at 4.1Ghz. the 1095T and the 1055T are the same thing just different stock speed., and both OC to the same speed (4.0-4.2) on air. I don't know if you intend to OC or not, but that's what i am going to run it at.

I made a thread a while ago, and I went on holiday (vacation) for a week and that's why I've started a new thread. Though I also want to know if I should RMA the CPU or if there are more things to try.
I've tried clearing CMOS and taking out the battery many times, and no matter what I did, the motherboard wouldn't POST. When I put my Athlon back in, my motherboard did POST and everything went on as normal (Accept the system time changed).
So, this thread is quite simple; Would you say the product I ordered is defective?

A:Phenom II 1090T about to be sent for RMA

Hi there
1) the fact that the Athlon worked (and still works) shows there isn't a problem per se with the MOBO.

2) with the new CPU there are IMO two main options :

a) MOBO is incompatable with the CPU you ordered -- check the documentation to see if there are any switches that need setting. These days everything is usually done in Software -- but ensure that cpu is properly connected including Fan etc etc.

b) Cpu is defective -- I think this is likely to be the case --although IMO the fact of being shipped a defective CPU sounds really unlikely. You might have damaged it when replacing the old cpu by bending (accidentally) a pin -- but this is surprisingly hard to do with modern cpu's.

So my bet is that you've just become a very unlucky statistic. Return the CPU for replacement.

A:Phenom 1090T best cooling?

depends on how much you're looking to overclock, because there are some really good air coolers out there. you could also just try using a better thermal compound like TX-3 or the OCZ stuff. have you been monitoring temps or do you just think that the heat is what's causing the computer to crash? again, it sort of depends on the hardware and how much you're looking to push it.

Hello there everyone, recently I bought a Phenon x6 1055t, a M4A78T-E and a 4gb DDr3 1333mhz corsair xms3 memory. I installed them with my old xfx 9800GT, 550w Corsair power supply and LG DVD IDE driver, plus my 2 SATA HDD (1 samsumg 1tb and 1 Western Digital 160gb).
After much trouble I managed to get the system stable, I was having constant BSOD due to voltagem problems (it was accusing Memory_Management), using windows driver verifier I found out a problem with the ACPI driver, I updated it and the BSOD went away. I managed to update the BIOS and instaled ASUS CPU management tools, but now my system is very slow on certain aspects, mainly installing/unistalling and moving files. It took me more than 1 hour to get Maya installed, on my old system (a M2n-e SLI and an Athlon x2 5200+) it would take 15 minutes top. Running programs is also slower, they take longer to load. Can it be HDD problems? Or incompatibilities between the MB and the CPU/Memory?

I have a Phenom II 710 in my PC which has only 3 cores (couldn't unlock a 4th) and is running at stock speed (I'm not much of an overclocker and my limited attempts failed to gain any significant speed). The PC has an AM2+ motherboard (Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UD4).

Recently I encountered some cases where the 710 was just too little for me. I'm working from home and was running simulations which are single core but sometimes I ran more than one at a time. I got to where my PC slowed down (all cores were at 100%), and I could also use a faster single core speed so they finish faster. While my usage has changed somewhat in recent weeks (more remote work instead of local), I still think it's worth getting an upgrade.

I was hoping that the Phenom II X6 1090T will drop in price once Bulldozer appears, but since that got postponed, and I have someone to bring me the CPU from the US if I order right now, I thought it might be a good opportunity (especially since my birthday is coming up next month). $180 is a little more than I hoped to pay, but not really that bad.

Still, I'd like to get some opinions about this.

The benefits I see:

- Compatible with my current PC, no need to upgrade anything else, saving money and time.
- Double the cores, which is good for when I need that.
- Higher core speed: 3.2GHz (3.6GHz with turbo) vs. 2.6GHz.
- Black Edition, so easy to overclock if I want it.
- Will cost less than the 710 cost me two years ago if I bu... Read more

A:Upgrade stock Phenom II 710 to 1090T?

It is hard to argue with any of your points there, however the performance increase will be profound from the x3 710 to the x6 1090. You can save about $30 (US) and get the 1055T to accomplish the same thing. The Thubans are all the same CPU (unlocked multi excluded)
The Thubans OC easily, and the 1055,1075,1090,1100, will all OC to between 4.0-4.3 Ghz with little effort, and for multi-threaded applications it is very fast. I am running an 1090T @ 4.26Ghz for Video editing,3DSMax,Photoshop CS5, and other adobe applicatiuons and am very pleased with it. Contrary to poplular belief, there are a number of games now that make use of 4+ cores as well.
Here are some numbers to look at.
I am however awaiting Bulldozer, so good luck with whateveryou decide.

Hi I have a AMD phenom II x6 1090t, with a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 cooler and the thermal compound is applied properly. I also have 5 chassis fans.

On idle I normally have temps of 30-38 and when I'm gaming (GTA IV, LFD, COD MW2, BLACK OPS etc) I only hit 50, but when I was playing GTA IV, I finished playing and checked my temps and core temp said I hit 112 Celsius, however I didn't hear the computer get noisy or anything. I was wondering if this is legit or just a false temp because I've heard a few bad things about core temp.

When I use prime95 and other tools I only hit like 50 D:

any help or advice would help me a great deal

A:AMD phenom II x6 1090t high temps

It's not uncommon for third party monitoring software to not recognize current hardware. Does the board come with monitoring software? If so, what temps does it report? You can try HWMonitor, they're usually pretty good about being up to date: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Keep in mind, it's never a good idea to run more than 1 temp monitor at a time. It could cause system instability.

Hi everyone,
I really hope that the problem I'm about to share is bound with the PSU, but I'd like to read your opinions. Basically, my PC turned off suddenly, while it was running a game - I checked the LEDs on the motherboard and the "CPU_LED" was red, then I tried to reboot it, but the same led was still on. I started to think on the possible solutions so I left the PC there for almost 5 hours with the power supply disconnected.
When I came back to try, the led was not red anymore but, after like 45 seconds, the machine turned off again with the same red led on the "CPU_LED". Since I couldn't use my PC I took the opportunity to refresh the thermal paste on the CPU and clean the inside from the dust.
Now, I just tried to turn it on, and again, I could start the PC, and enter the BIOS, just to check temperatures and so on (My AMD Phenom II X6 1090T was running at 34 degree C, so nothing wrong here) but after like one minute, the PC went off with the same "CPU_LED" on.

Tomorrow I'll try to replace the PSU and see how it goes, but what're your thoughts ?

Many thanks,

Hello, I've been in the IT business for quite a while, but while i fix everyone elses' new computers I am notoriously cheap and have not bought a new system myself in over five years. Deciding it is about time now I have been doing some research and am currently looking at getting a:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T black edition at ~$260
and a ASUS Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX at ~$170

Is this processor overkill? would it be better to get an earlier model for a bit cheaper? I'm just talking about from a functional efficiency standpoint, not for any specific usage necessities, I'm not the most hardcore gamer but I would like not to have to lower game settings for a few years.

As I understand it this is a good combo for overclocking, though I don't intend to go too high on the clock speed. Is this still a good setup or have there been better combos that have come out at a reasonable price?

Would it hurt to go for a cheaper mobo? I see that there is a combo deal with this processor with the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX on newegg, and the MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3 AMD 890FX is a bit cheaper as well. Is the Crosshair worth the added cost?

Any suggestions before I buy this set would be appreciated, even other hardware suggestions to go with it, video card or memory setups, or a good psu choice.

A:Phenom II X6 1090T and motherboard choices - comments?

Hi sethbest,
If you want a little perspective from someone who owns that combo, here ya go. The 1055t is the best price/performance of the X6 lineup. They are the same CPU's just with different factory clocks. they all OC to the same frequency (4.0-4.2Ghz) I purchased the 1055T because I just don't like to pay for someone else to do the OC'ing. The Formula IV is purely an OC board with all of the bells and whistles. it will completely take the fun out of OC'ing if you want it to. It does however have USB 3.0 support, and 42 PCIE lanes if you require that, or are planning on running a multi GPU setup. It is a stellar board both in features and build quality, and you will get the maximum OC out of whatever CPU you drop in there. For me , the Formula IV was worth the $$$, But I run 3x GPU and OC the hell out of everything, so that's a call for you to make. if you are not going to be heavily OC'ing, you can save some money and go with the MB (or similar)I linked to below.
As far as the X6 being 'overkill', there are apps that use the cores. the only game I know of that will use that many is bad company 2, it will use as many cores as you have. I think that will change with the next round of games however. And before Captian Cranky come in here and calls me out...I mostly got an X6 because I just wanted one ( is that better Cap? if you want to know anything else about the X6 or the IV, just holler.

I recently bought a seller refurbished Dell studio XPS 7100, with the 1045T processor and a Radeon RX 470 graphics card for med level gaming. I wasn't to upgrade to a 1090T. I believe that the graphics card is being bottlenecked, and would just generally try to get as much out of this computer as I can. The Passmark benchmark score for the 1090 is about 20% better, and has a significantly higher single core speed. Especially since the BIOS will not allow for overclocking, I would love to boost my processor speed and single core performance.
I am interested in upgrading the processor as much as possible, but upon research it looks like I will be restricted by the motherboard. Here is the info i have on my motherboard:
Dell Inc 0NWWY0 
Chipset model 785G
Southbridge model SB700

The AMD Phenom xii 1045t is a 95w processor, and I am trying to see if my motherboard is compatible with a 125 processor (like the 1090t).
I have seen that some xps 7100 have the 1090t, but I cant tell if they have the same motherboard as me. All of my research on my motherboard has proved fruitless in getting a solid answer about whether it is compatible with 125w processors.
If anyone has any wisdom, or a place where I can find this information it would be much appreciated! 

Thanks in Advance!

A:Processor picking, AMD Phenom 9600 VS AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition

Between the two, it is a no brainer. Get the 940. Next IMO you use an amd chipset board for an amd build and an intel chipset board for an intel build.

When you use third party chipset boards ie nvidia, sis, or via, you are asking for problems.
Nvidia makes fine video cards; their motherboard chipsets.... that is another matter.

Hey guys,

well I currently have two motherboards ASUS M4A79T deluxe, ASUS P7P55D, Which would be best for a web server running Ubuntu 10.10, Apache and Samba for file server. "Home Use"

I'm thinking the 1055T X6 for better future, but I'm thinking i5 for stability. I plan to have 16GB ram since price for ram is cheap.

I also have 5 HDD's including one VelociRaptor 150GB

what do ya think???

A:1055T or i5 760, for multifunction server?

In terms of stability, neither the 1055T or i5 are any different, they're both stable CPUs, and a system running either is not going to offer any advantages in regards to that.

I would choose the 6 core Phenom (because of the two or more additional cores) over the i5 (assuming its a 2/4 thread model) though, but both will be more than fine for a home-server type setup. I would also purchase a good aftermarket cooler for a Phenom setup as well, to help keep it cool if its running 24/7.

16GB should also be absolutely plenty of RAM as well.

Equally important (and not commented about in your post) is ensuring your server has gigabit network connectivity though, especially if you plan to be using it as a data/backup server on your home network. If it was me I'd drop down to 8GB of RAM and then purchase a good gigabit switch and router, and cat 5e/6 network cabling (and gigabit NICs if needed) to ensure your network has the best bandwidth and speed possible. Being stuck on 10/100 speeds across your network would in my opinion waste the performance of your server.

I am currently overclocking my X6 1090t from AMD. I got it to 3.8GHZ so far and am monitoring its temperatures. The AMD website says that the CPU temperatures should not go above 65 degrees Celsius.

So my question is, which one of these temperatures is the AMD website talking about? The 40 degrees Celsius, or the 54 degrees Celsius in this screenshot?

Which cooler is best for amd 1090t @ 4 Ghz or above?
Maximum temperature should be 55 degree celcius.
Though maximum temp for 1090t is 62-65 degree celcius.
In my city the temperature is 30- 36 degree celcius

I am going to upgrade to a new processor soon and I was just wondering if my motherboard will run a Phenom II processor. It will run a Phenom processor and also Phenom FX, which hasn't even been released yet, so it seems like it would run most new AMD processors.

Here is the motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131340


A:Will a motherboard that will run Phenom also run Phenom II?

It most propably won't. You will at least need a BIOS update. Actually it will. :O
Go here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us search for your motherboard, choose WinXP (or any other, as it doesn't even matter), choose BIOS [BIOS history], choose the latest, 1001, BIOS, download. Then... I'm not sure, but you might need a floppy drive to update the BIOS, though some newer board can be done with a USB drive.

I've been dealing with this for a while now. Basically, when core #3 is turned on, my computer will run for a bit, then blue screen randomly. Usually pretty quick. I have been through many reinstalls, definitely not software. Tried cleaning, re-applying thermal paste. This is a 3 year old processor, and this has been going on for about 1 1/2 years. The only fix I have is in the bios, to turn the processor off. My mobo is the Asus m4a87td-usb 3, evga gtx 570 superclocked and so on. I've also noticed, I have never been able to overclock my processor or my graphics card even little without blue screening, if that helps. Even with the auto-tune. I have a case with plenty of large fans and air flow.

I built a new computer for a friend of mine and for some reason it's being really difficult. I used a MSI 790FX-GD70 socket AM3 motherboard and a six core AMD processor, the 1090t. I also installed 8GB of Corsair XMS3 DDR3 dual channel memory which is supposed to run at 1600mhz (8-8-8-24). my problem is that the board defaults the RAM at 1333mhz and slightly looser timings. This normally wouldn't be an issue but since I want him to be able to run the memory modules at full speed I am trying to adjust the BIOS accordingly; failing miserably. This board is designed for moderate OC, and supports the RAM, but for some reason it becomes unstable when tweaking. I suppose this could have something to do with an outdated BIOS and being coupled with an X6 processor, but the changes I'm trying to make really aren't that extravagant.

Firstly, I tried to set a ratio of [1:4] which would have the memory run @ 1600mhz, but the board didn't seem to like that too much and would not POST afterward. I read that the 1:4 ratio is problematic with some hardware combinations so I abandoned that right away. Next I tried raising the HTT/FSB to 250 in 10mhz increments, and adjusting the volts accordingly. This worked fine until I lowered the multiplier from [16] (200x16) to [13] (250x13) and setting the NB multi to [8]. This gave the CPU just a slight OC from stock speed and kept the NB where it was supposed to be. However, even though the memory was now @ 1666mhz and the ti... Read more

As the title says, i just ran 3dmark vantage and i got a low cpu score, i started cpu-z and there i see that my cpu runs
as "AMD Phenom 6500", to my knowledge that is a athlon x2 cpu of some sort...might be wrong...

Anyway, cpu i have is "AMD Phenom X4 965 Black Edition".

Why on earth does it run like a 2 cored athlon and how do i fix this?

Thankful for answeres!

About three months ago I upgraded to this Motherboard (M4N98TD Evo) as my previous motherboard died (M4N72-E), The transition seemed to go very smoothly apart from the fact that I am still struggling for absolute stability.

I know what my old board was capable of running these components at and I know all the voltages. etc, that I used to obtain them, while understanding that this board is a different prospect, I was hoping as it was a model higher that I may have better results with it.

However after an 8 hour run of prime95 last night and thinking that I had cracked it, today while playing FSX for around two hours, I suddenly get a BSOD, I am also getting crashes while playing F1 2011 although these are black screen crashes and no BSOD reports.

Attached is the required dump files, any help appreciated.

No .dmp files included. If you are running CCleaner (I see it installed), please refrain from using it for the duration of your troubleshooting. It deletes the .dmp files during clean up processes.

I was able to check the Event Viewer logs, and I see three 0x116 Video TDR Error crashes and a 0x50 Page Fault in Nonpaged Area crash. This indicates possible memory issues and/or graphics card issues.

I see that you are running an AMD processor with overclocked RAM. AMD processors have a difficult time handling anything over 1333 MHz without some serious tweaking, so we advise against running them with RAM that runs at 1600 MHz or higher. 1744 MHz is definitely going to cause problems. I would recommend starting there. If you have XMP with the logo, it probably will not play well with AMD hardware.

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please re... Read more

SO I am curious if my overclocked 580gtx and 1090t at 4ghz can run Crysis:warhead on enthusiast settings with decent fps at a resolution of 2048x1152, oh yah and 8gb of ram. Thanks guy

A:GTX 580 + [email protected] + 2048x1152 = Crysis: Warhead enthusiast + 45fps?

HI Bazark,
That is about right for that setup/res. The good news is that the minimum frame rate should rarely be below 30 FPS. Maybe an odd and brief 25 FPS during 'From hell' and the like.

I just got a new laptop and was wondering what kinds of benchmarks would be good to make sure it performs as well as it should. I'd like to know how to compare it to similarly configured laptops in games and multimedia applications.

Also, is there a way for me to see the make of RAM I have. I know how to find out the amount, but it never says the manufacturer.


A quick search for laptop benchmark came up with this CNet page. It shows how they benchmark their laptops, and what programs they use to do it. Worth giving a quick read, at least.

To find out the make of your ram, you can run CPU-Z. It's free, you can download it by clicking the link under 'latest version' in the top left corner of that page. When you run it, click the SPD tab, and it will show vendor information, if it's possible to show it for your system. Some RAM manufacturers don't show, I think. Otherwise, you could just open your memory access panel on your laptop, and take the sticks out (while the laptop is off, of course), there should be a sticker or model number or something on them. Put the number into Google and see what comes up. Good luck!

Long before receiving a P72, I had hoped to have been able to view some benchmark results prior to the purchase decision.  In an effort to begin that discussion here, I ran a couple of benchmark tests using MAXON Cinebench and OTOY OctaneBench on a P72 with these selected specs: Lenovo P72Intel Xeon E-2186M 6 Core ProcessorNvidia Quadro P5200 16 GB17.3?

Hello, Everyone I was wondering how do my benchmarks add up if they are strong or weak in performancew for the last few days i was using msi kombuster but with crappy results ussually round 3464 tottal score

This was bugging me for a few days wondering why my card sucks so much im running a hd 5770 now that i discovered a more updated version of msi kombuster these are my new results can someone tell me if good or bad i just did one test not even in full screen next test will be the 1680/1050 full screen im submitting the first three shots and from there i hope to hear some feedback i also couldn't adjust the first resolution it went back to those setting

Thank you in advanced

A:My Benchmarks

Good scores. I have to admit, the 5770 is a better card than the 260 in a lot of ways, but its driver support was so bad that I returned the card out of being sick of it...

Other than that, looks like its doing good.

Try SiSoftware Sandra. It has good benchmarking sets.

I have seen postings about computers being slow. Are there any benchmarks that one can use to see if the computer is running as well as expected, given the RAM and the processor speed? Many thanks.

A:Speed benchmarks?

When people say there computer is running slow, they normally mean its running 'slower' than it used to and want to know why. This is normally down to spyware, background processes, fragged harddrive plus any number of things.

As for benchmarking, there are many types Dhrystone, Whetstone, PCMark, plus ones for graphics cards (3D mark), look at the following sites www.futuremark.com and www.sisoftware.net.

However be aware that whole subject of benchmarking is a bit more subjective, the same cpu on a different motherboard will give different benchmarks even though the cpu is clocked the same. So just because your setup doesnt give exactly the same as someone with 'apparently' the same setup, its not worth trying to track down why (all very clever electronic magic)! Oh and benchmarks do not always represent a true real-life performance.
