Solved AMD Phenom II x4 -> x6 core unlock? Tags: CPUs Core Processors Phenom Last response: April 4, 2012 10:44 AM in CPUs Share n3007 July 25, 2010 9:45:47 PM Well hello everybody.. Going to buy a new gaming rig.. and getting this for mobo: http://en.ocworkbench.com/tech/asrock-890gx-extreme3-am... I planned to get Phenom II 1055t as processor, but is it indeed possible to have a 945 quad core unlocked to a fine six-core? I thought core unlocking was possible only with x3 and x4 processors, but to have x4->X6 ? Sounds almost too good! Anyone tried it? Confirms?

It's not possible, the only Phenom II X4 that can be unlocked to a Phenom II X6 is the Phenom II X4 960T (see here) that hasn't be released to the public. cangelini July 26, 2010 3:31:46 AM We're still hoping AMD launches the Zosma-based Phenom II X4 960T, but the official word from the company is that it has no plans to do so, unfortunately duk3 July 26, 2010 3:32:13 AM The Zosma cores are the only ones that this will be possible with and these processors may not be released at all. n3007 July 26, 2010 6:15:15 AM OK!
