Did anybody get an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T so far?
 
The Phenom 2 X6 1055T has six cores, 2.8 GhZ and costs around 180 Euro. Not bad for a hexcore cpu.

Will somebody buy it or can check out the Prime95 performance on it?

An interesting evening. Chips are out [URL="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103851"]for[/URL] [URL="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849"]sale[/URL] (and for a few days on Amazon as a sneaky pre-order), but there are still no official specs from AMD and/or BIOS updates from mobo makers.

But tomorrow this will hopefully change. We'll see.

Some guys already have benchmarks on youtube (so the BIOSes seem to work). If somebody get one can he/she make a Prime95 100M benchmark (like described in the other thread)?

BIOSes? plural? Are you saying that every BIOS will work? Wouldn't that be nice? Don't think so.

But it's easy. Swimming with the flow [URL="http://www.gigabyte-usa.com/FileList/WebPage/mb_890gpa_ud3h/index.htm"]is easy[/URL].* Take out a few hundred more and buy a whole new system. GA-890GPA-UD3H will work because that's what they want you to buy - it's ready, ...but for the existing mothers, you will need to flash. I don't blame GA: usually they are contractually bound to release the updates when the maker releases the chip, which is tomorrow. AMD is site was still vacant of any mention of six-cores, but now midnight struck and the magic [spoiler]tampax turned into a pumpkin[/spoiler] ...oops.

Ok, it's time to search for updates - now.

The plural of BIOS can be 'only' two so if I would have said all BIOSes you would be correct ^^.

In a lot of circumstances the processor starts (with an old bios) but isn't recognized correctly. It's almost always a good idea to upgrade the BIOS. Anyway, I would take the chance ... to get one of these babies.

My 100M number needs fuel *hehe* ..

A list of Gigabyte MB's that currently support AMD six-core CPU's. An updated list is probably available there at the end of the week.

Just as I expected, for the [URL="http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/mainboards/2010/kurztest_sechs_mainboards_sechs_kerne/5/#abschnitt_gigabyte_gama790gpds4h_790gx"]GA-MA790GP[/URL]-UD4H the F7-beta BIOS is not doing anything yet. I've prodded GA's web support, no answer yet.

Ah, wait. The answer just came:
[COLOR=blue]"Dear customer,[/COLOR]
[COLOR=blue]We already sent board to AMD for X6 processor validation, still not get result from AMD yet, please check back with us in two weeks."[/COLOR]

I just bought the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition on ebay for $278 OEM version. I'm going to use the Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H motherboard with it.

When I get it an set everything up I'll post benchmarks. Give me about a week or 2.

Great :).

Can you use the exponent and settings shown in the 100M hardware thread?

I can't find the thread you are referring to. Can you please give a link?

I haven't received the parts as yet however so give me 2 weeks max.
