The AMD Phenom II X6 1100T was the last, in a long line of Phenom II X6's. The series went 1045T, 1055T, 1065T, 1075T, 1090T and finally 1100T. Each successive release was clocked slightly higher ending with the 1100T which had a base/turbo clock speed of 3.3/3.7 GHz. The X6 has six processing cores and demonstrates very good multi-core performance but it is less able to handle single and dual core workloads, which is what the majority of consumer desktop computing requires. The X6 series were good overclockers with the ability to boost stock clocks by around 20%. Comparing the 1100T to the similarly priced i5-2400 shows that Intel's mid-range Sandy Bridge processor, which was released just a month after the 1100T, was around 8% faster for single and dual core workloads but slower by a staggering 30% for multi-core workloads. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

AMD released the FX-9590 back in July 2013 but it's not until recently that these processors have started hitting the shelves and even now prices are still extremely high. This is the first mainstream 5GHz processor but clock speed isn't the key performance indicator it once was. Comparing the 9590 to the 8350 shows that the 9590 has 16% better overall performance which is almost exactly in line with its base clock increase from 4.0 to 4.7 GHz. Despite this performance boost the 9590 still lags Intel's most recent 4770K Haswell processor by 26% and that's despite the AMD's 27% higher base clock. In terms of relative performance the AMD's strong point is Integer processing where it has 8 processing units vs just four (one per core) in the 4770K. Overall, especially at current prices, the 9590 doesn't represent good value for money. [Jan '14 CPUPro]
