The 6-core CPU age is upon us with Intel releasing its Gulftown 6-core range not too long ago. That means its time for AMD to launch its own 6-core processors that will inevitably be much cheaper than the Intel parts, but offer less performance.

The pricing on the AMD 6-core Phenom II X6 parts has turned up online courtesy of a retailer called Advanti. The reseller says that the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition with a 125W TDP, 9MB cache, and 3.2GHz frequency will sell for $295. The 1055T 125W TDP, 9MB cache, 2.8GHz version will sell for $199.

Both of those prices are much, much less than an Intel 6-core CPU. I can't wait to see some performance numbers for the new AMD CPUs. The Black Edition will be multiplier unlocked and should make for a popular enthusiast CPU on the cheap.
