Fastest AMD Thuban chip to have 3GHz clock speed

The first indication of the clock speeds of AMD's Thuban six-core chips for consumer PCs has been leaked on Friday. According to BIOS updates and CPU support lists released by Gigabyte, the six-core X6 1035T will be rated at 2.6GHz, while the X6 1055T will run at 2.8GHz and the top-rung, six-core AMD chip will be the Phenom II X6 1075T, with a 3GHz clock speed. This is significantly below the 3.33GHz frequency of Intel's fastest chip, the Core i7-980X, but doesn't necessarily reflect the actual performance gap.

Other fairly set specs of the 45nm six-core chips include 9MB of cache and an integrated DDR3 memory controller. All of the six-core AMD chips are expected to arrive sometime in April, though no specific date has been set. Pricing is also not yet known, but expected to undercut the equivalent six-core Intel CPU. [via TechConnectMagazine]
