You know those hexa-core Phenom II processors AMD has in store? Well, it seems they've already filtered through to the Asian marketplace and Chinese users are doing exactly what you'd expect - benchmarking the hell out of them.

One such user of Chinese forum coolaler.com has his/her hands on AMD's top-of-the-range part - the 3.2GHz Phenom II X6 1090T, which hits 3.6GHz with Turbo CORE - and has been putting it through its paces on an MSI 790GX motherboard.

Whilst we can't comment on the authenticity of the benchmarks, they do state the obvious - AMD's six-core part flies when it comes to multi-threaded applications.

It's unlikely to pose a threat to Intel's all-conquering Core i7 line, of course, but with AMD's Phenom II X6 parts said to be priced from around £165, it's an entirely different ball game.

For the complete spread of leaked benchmarks - including the likes of Cinebench, 3DMark and wPrime to name but a few - head over to coolaler.com.

Although yet to be officially confirmed by AMD, the first wave of hexa-core Phenom processors are believed to line up as detailed in the below table. Expect to see and hear more on the Phenom II X6 line in the coming weeks.

my you get around dude! ;)

Aye - benches all on 32bit OS

theres also some benchies of these chips @ 3.8 kicking around - yaaay - finally i7 920 beating stuff, well done AMD - hope we get them priced correctly in rip-off britain :(

Its the price that will make or break these babies.
CAT-THE-FIFTH
The benchmarks were done under a 32 bit OS:

Is that a significant point?
The AMD chips perform much better in Cinebench under a 64-bit OS.
Anyone got any numbers for an i7 920 or 930 to compare against these benchmarks? I clearly rely on comparative graphs too much these days as I've no idea how the i7 should be scoring on these benches so I can't really make a comparison by myself!
