Whats the difference between these chips? I'll outline what I already know:
The Phenom ii x6 chips have 6 cores instead of 4. (I know, I'm sharp )
The 1090T BE has the multiplier unlocked, where as the 1055T does not (however the FSB is still unlocked on the 1055T)
The hex core chips come with turbo core
Is that all? if so, why do I see people reporting higher OCs with the six core chips than the four cores? They have the same EVERYTHING except for two more cores, which would mean more heat so... I don't know. I'm lost on this, I know there must be something I'm missing.
Phenom II X6 is technically on a different manufacturing process than Phenom II X4.
"AMD has included a Low-K Di-electric material in the design, which improves leakage while not significantly affecting transistor switching performance. This has allowed AMD to lower the TDP of this part as compared to what it could have been if the design had been left unchanged from Shanghai as well as using the older iteration of the 45 nm process"
My quote is from the first page, if you read it you'll find it.
