AMD Phenom II X6 1075T CPU Review – revisited

Rating: 7.5.

It’s been over a year since AMD launched their Phenom II X4 and X6 processor lines and they are certainly showing their age compared to Intel’s Sandy Bridge platform.  But can they still compete with Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge processors?

We recently reviewed their latest Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition processor which is likely to be the last in their Deneb range before their next-gen Bulldozer platform is released.  Unfortunately this was merely a clock-bumped version of their Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition processor and didn’t compete with Sandy Bridge on performance or price.

Today we are going to look at the AMD Phenom II X6 1075T processor which has been on the market for quite a while now.  It comes in at a very similar price to the Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition but features two extra cores.  Despite not having an unlocked multiplier, it can easily be overclocked providing you have an adequate cooler so we look forward to seeing how it performs in our tests.

Older AIO coolers with LGA1700 mounting kits may have issues with Alder Lake CPUs

Many CPU cooler manufacturers announced they will give out LGA1700 mounting kits for free if you own an Intel Alder Lake CPU and a selected cooler. This is usually a good idea, as it allows PC builders to reuse their current CPU cooler, rather than being forced to buy a new one. However, early reports seem to point to cooling issues when bringing older AIO coolers to the LGA1700 platform.
