We're only a few weeks away before AMD hits the market with its new crop of six-core processors in the Phenom II X6 family and some U.S. retailers have decided to jump the gun, giving listings for the parts with pricing mentioned.

 

Pre-orders from one retailer on the 1090T (3.2GHz) model show it with associated pricing of $318, though another reseller has it listed for a fair whack more at $350, but that reseller also has the 1055T listed for $240, too.

The Phenim II X6 series should fare pretty well with there being quite a hole in Intel's lineup here. Yes, it has the mighty i7-980X in its arsenal for super six-core grunt, but at $999 it's hardly an option for the majority of buyers out there.

 

Meanwhile, AMD will have gives six-core models with much more attractive pricing, not to mention the easier upgrade path for mainstream buyers wanting a multi-processing powerhouse.
