Early this morning AMD officially launched its first six-core Thuban processors: the Phenom II X6 1090T and 1055T. The last thing we would dream of doing is complain about pricing on these parts. AMD is selling you almost a billion transistors for $199 or $285 depending on what clock speed you want.

AMD just sent us word that the pricing story gets even better. TigerDirect is running a $50 mail in rebate on the new X6 processors dropping the price down to $149.99 and $249.99 for the 1055T and 1090T, respectively. While we're not huge fans of mail in rebates, if you're fine with getting a check in the mail sometime later then you honestly can't beat these deals. At $149.99 there simply is no answer to AMD's Phenom II X6 1055T.

Update: The deal is dead, congrats to those who got in.

    Bravo to Newegg for not advertising any post-MIR prices like Tiger Direct does! NCIX can suck it for this reason too (I find forum users also brag about the prices they paid for their system components and conveniently neglect to mention MIRs. You can take your OCZ parts and shove em)
