AMD Thuban Processors: Six-Core Phenom II’s Coming in April

By Posted 1 Mar 2010, 15:30

Rumors are circulating which suggest that we could soon see the release of three new six-core processors from AMD, these hexa-core processors are apparently codenamed ‘Thuban’.

The three new processors should arrive on April 26th, on this date we should see the release of the AMD Phenom II X6 1035T, 1055T, and the 1075T all of which will be aimed towards desktop computers.

It is thought that these ‘Thubans’ will be compatible with AM3, AM2+ and AM2 sockets, however most boards will require a BIOS update, board manufacturers will have to decide whether to release BIOS updates for old boards, chances are they will just promote the purchase of a new motherboard.

Fully detailed information regarding these upcoming chips is unknown, however if you head over to HotHardware their article takes a much deeper look.

    It's Hex-core not Hexa-core.
    Hex=6
    Hexa=16

    @Bob so Hexagonal is a sixteen sided shape? I don’t think so Epic Failure on your part my friend. It is considered Hexacore even though the term Hexa is meant in relation to 16. Just cause the term is wrong doesn’t mean it was a gaff on the writer’s part. Thanks.
