Are there really that much of a difference in the 1055t 6 core and the 1090t 6 core? because for the price I was going to go with the 1055t.

More about : amd cores

The 1055 is normally thought to be the better value...

Unless you actually plan an running manyseveral cpu intensive tasks all at once, any of the X4s are an even better value still.....

I've got mine running flawlessly at 3.6GHz. With proper cooling, I've seen the 955 run as high as 3.9GHz. Find out what your 955 can do before spending good money on another CPU.

Are you running it at stock? Push that x4 up to 3.4Ghz and have a look again



I have it clocked to a stable 3.6 it will do 3.7 but that is the stress point. The ECS Elite 790 GXM has been a very nice board for me for Ocing.

In my opinion, I think a 6 core CPU is a waste for gamers. There are currently no games that uses 4 cores. Yeah there are crap games out there that recommends a quad core like GTA IV, but that's a very poor game port.

Games using 5 or 6 cores maybe be coming out, but I think that wouldn't happen for at least another 3+ years.

I know that dragon age also uses 4 cores.
Ontopic: i would buy the 1055 and get a nice cooler for it and overclock it.

How come the i 7 860 performed so well? from my understanding was the 1090t was suppose to be right even or better then the 860? I am not much of a intel lover forgive me for that but after having a bad experience with a dual core some years ago I have been a amd user for quite some time.

It has to do with the architecture and how it processes instructions. The i7-860 appears to be very efficient at what it does.

As for AMD vs. Intel, I go for whichever gives me the best bang for my money (and power consumption to a lesser extent).

I own 1050 T and am quite happy with it. However it is at 2.8 GHZ and as somebody pointed out there are no games for next 3-4 years for a hexacore.

so. I would say,,if you want to choose between 1050 t and 1090t, go for 1050 unless you are great overclocker though 1050 can also be overclocked but not like 1090 (but do u really need to overclock a hexacore?).


However, my personal suggestion is look for a quad at a greater speed than 2.8 at lower or same prize as 1050 t, if you can find it go for it.
