3 Core - 6 Core Upgrade *Worthy Choice*
This processor may be a bit dated but still seems to do the job just fine, the one I acquired was preowned as was my last AMD CPU, which was a Phenom II 720 X3 2.8Ghz. Upgrading finally to the X6 1090T was a good choice. Everything is snappier and runs consistently on most applications and games. As this was the best CPU my motherboard could take without upgrading my whole PC. Being automatically overclocked to 3.6 rather than the stated factory clock of 3.2 was a surprise to me when delving into the details of the CPU. My only niggle with installation and running of the CPU was my motherboard didn't have compatible BIOS software which was a concern when attempting to plug and play resulted in non boot. In the end it was a new lesson to me and after a bit of research I was able to update to a new BIOS and get to testing what this little puppy had in comparison. Pricing was fair for what it has to offer and a great all round CPU for today's current market.Read full review
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
Great product for its time. I upgraded from a AMD 640 Athlon so it was a noticeable improvement. I would recommend.
ebay a very big must ....
for me myself ebay is part of my life my biggest problem i cant keep off it lol ............ the 1090t is a very farst prossesor indeed but would like much better .....
still good value, but don't pay more than £80 for this cpu without a cooler
I use this cpu for music production, it is getting dated but still handles pro tools and cubase with ease on high track counts. I also use an Intel i7 with same cpu benchmarks, to be honest ,the intel is a better allrounder. AMD is less costly than an intel though , so from that point it is still a good buy Hope that helps someone make a choice.
