Pros: Brilliant value for money. Cons: It's not the 2400k which can be had for just a tiny bit more and offers a lot more flexibility in terms of overclocking. [Apr '12 CPUPro]


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]
