    Default AMD FX9590 (5ghz) Review

    AMD FX9590 (5ghz) Review (w/ Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5) « KitGuru

    Today we are looking at the new AMD FX9590, clocked at an eye popping 5ghz. The FX9590 is shipped with a base clock of 4.7ghz and a maximum turbo speed of 5.0ghz – the all important figure which has already started a plethora of news stories across the net. AMD wanted to be the first out the door with a 5ghz processor and they achieved it. The question we ask today- ‘Ok – 5ghz, but at what cost?’.
    Well we can answer that, immediately.

    The cost to the end user will be between £650 and £700 and stores such as ARIA will have stock this week. This is significantly more expensive than Intel’s 3930K (£450) and slightly less expensive than their flagship 3970X (£850).
    To put things into perspective, the Haswell Intel 4770K is retailing for £263.99 on ARIA. You could buy two 4770k processors along with some memory and a good power supply for the price of a single FX9590.

    AMD say they aren’t sampling the processor to the press as it is only for system builders. This has caused much head scratching behind closed doors … not only with us, but with our many retail contacts in the industry. Rest assured, some of these processors will be sold direct to the public, but be prepared to dig deep into that trouser pocket and perhaps bend the credit card a little too.

    I really like the idea of Dual Quad, and when it does happen (way down the road, and as of right now) I think i would go with the 8350 when i upgrade.

    Yup, its a 220W beast and kind of a waste of a CPU considering what it brings to the table.

    What do you mean by "gen1"? This CPU is 2nd gen based on the Bulldozer microarchitecture.

    I just turned in a request for a FX-9590.
    actually it's $900
    AMD 5GHz FX-9590 CPU pricing info spotted, seems a bit too high :: TweakTown
    You don't know me and that's the way i like it!

    i believe the high price is for normal people dont get there hands on a gen1 chip that really doesnt have a motherboard really designed for it and there is still alot of things to work out with who know by the the time the refresh hits it could be 300 to 400 or so

    As it stands right now there are only 2 mobo that are certified for this chip. It intrigued me when I first heard about it and I do indulge in the higher end items every now and then but after reading about this chip in the very few reviews there are right now. I won't be indulging in this one. 8350FX is on it's way to my door now. Just confirms to me I made a good purchase.
