amd phenom

AMD’s latest 6-core processors are strangely affordable to the mass market, where its 3.2GHz Phenom II X6 1090T is going for $295, which is way lower than Intel’s hexa-core Core i7-980X that retails for $1,000, slightly more than triple the amount. Apart from that, AMD’s latest processor is also backwards compatible with most of the AM3 and selected AM2+, motherboards, making a CPU upgrade much easier on your pockets. The only issue that remains would be its performance – would you be willing to take a significantly cheaper route simply because it suits your budget, and there is enough bang for your buck with the purchase?
