AMD have officially launched
their new AMD Phenom II X6 processor, the hexacore chip we've heard rumors regarding
for several months now, together with the new AMD 890FX chipset to go along with it. While the new CPUs aren't quite fast enough to take the speed crown away from Intel's Core i7
chips, AMD do hold the value card: the flagship AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition processor, for instance, is a 3.2GHz bargain at $285.
