    The 1055T comes in 95 W and 125 W variants.
    Similarly, the 965 comes in 125 W and 140 W variants.

      Where are you getting this from? There surely is no 95W version listed on AMD's website: http://products.amd.com/en-na/deskto...False&f12=True
      And I don't remember reading about a yet to come 95W version in any of the reviews I read.

        It was discussed from AMD leaked roadmaps in March.

        Some price comparison sites already list it (but no e-tailers yet):

          choose the newest if you can

          at least 6 Core K10.5 is competing with intel's 4 core products.

            I would choose the Thuban for all the reasons mentioned above and 965 only if you must have Block Edition.

            AFAICT, the 95W version of 1055T is only for preorder (coming soon), but I could be wrong. It has also been rumored that a 95W version of at least 955 is coming soon with a newer Deneb die (C4?).

              Currently the Phenom II X6 doesnt work very well with linux. The cpufreq-driver misinterprets the frequency stepping of amd processors with turbo core. Therefore the CPU cannot run at its full speed.

              This can be solved with a kernel patch or with deactivating Cool'n'Quiet. Future kernels (e.g. 2.6.35 and 2.6.34) will solve this. The date when this patch is included in 2.6.32.x, 2.6.33.y is unknown.
