Specs for six-core AMD processors leaked

Six-core ‘Thuban’ details spill a month early

The specifications for AMD’s desktop-oriented six-core processors, codenamed ‘Thuban’, have been accidentally leaked by Gigabyte — a month before their expected release.

The Taiwanese hardware manufacturer temporarily updated its CPU Support List with two new additions — the Phenom II X6 1055T and Phenom II X6 1035T — but has since taken down the information.

The CPUs will have 9MB of cache, along with an integrated DDR3 memory controller. The Phenom II X6 1035T will have its six cores set to 2.6GHz, while the 1055T model will be set at 2.8GHz, and the1075T at 3.0GHz.

The processors are set to go up against Intel’s six-core Gulftown CPUs, which were launched earlier this month.

AMD’s technical manager Garrath Johnston the processors will launch within four to six weeks but did not reveal pricing.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
