SiSoft Sandra 2009's processor test shows that the Phenom II X6 1090T is significantly faster than the Phenom II X4 955. Some of this increase may come from Phenom II X6 1090T's ability to adjust some cores to higher frequencies.

The memory performance of the MSI 890FXA-GD70 test system is about average when compared to most AMD processors, although AMD still has trouble keeping up with Intel's memory performance in pretty much every test. Memory bandwidth efficency and latency is largely dictated by the CPU's memory controller.
