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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
