Bahrain-based retailer Advanti Online appears to have revealed pricing for AMD's upcoming hexa-core Phenom II X6 processors, codenamed Thuban.
Citing AMD as its source, the retailer's Facebook page lists pricing information as follows:
Phenom II X6 Six Core
1090T Black Edition: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 3.2 GHz Freq @ 295 USD
1055T: 125(W), AM3 Socket, 9MB Cache, 2.8 GHz Freq @ 199 USD
AMD hasn't commented on the speculation, but the supposed pricing suggests the Phenom II X6 parts will certainly be worthy of consideration, and could bring about a new level of performance-per-pound.
The leak comes just days after motherboard manufacturer GIGABYTE let slip clock speeds for AMD hexa-core Thuban CPUs. However, contrary to previous reports, Advanti Online suggests the 2.8GHz Phenom II X6 will feature a 125W TDP, and not 95W as originally reported.
For the enthusiast space, it seems AMD will also have a 3.2GHz part - the Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition. Judging by the name, the chip may be multiplier unlocked, and at under $300 could quickly become a favourite among enthusiast users.
Adding credibility to Advanti's leaks, Danish retailer butik.dk currently has both Phenom II X6 processors listed for pre-order at similar prices, with availability expected on April 20th.
