AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor Review

Today AMD introduces their newest top dog processor, the Phenom II X6 1100T BE. Replacing the 1090T Black Edition as the highest clocked six core processor from AMD, the 1100T runs at 3.3GHz with 3.7GHz Turbo mode. The 1100T also brings a price drop to the top performance slot, and pushes the X6 1090T to a new lower price point as well - yes, AMD is dropping prices on their Thuban architecture processors, with the new pricing shown below (along with two new processors being introduced):

The 1100T doesn't introduce any new features or special sauce compared to other Thuban-based products, so to make things more exciting we'll do what some of you have been asking for - a comparison against Intel's Core i7 architecture. While we don't have the latest and greatest Intel Gulftown hexa core processors in house, or even the latest Bloomfield, we do have a nice Core i7 920 (D0 stepping) that should spice up the competition nicely.
