AMD Reveals Additional Details Regarding Its FX-9000 Series Processors

It appears that the recently announced FX-9590 and FX-9370 processors will be available through system integrators only, with no plans for retail at this time. In a discussion with the folks at The Tech Report, an unnamed AMD source was quoted saying the two new processors will be "available from system integrators globally beginning this summer," while adding that "AMD is considering all options" when asked about retail. During the same discussion the rumored "~220W" TDP was confirmed, which could hint to the reason why these chips might not see retail, requiring advanced cooling solutions, expensive and difficult to integrate into a typical retail package. The discussion also revealed the base clocks of both chips, in the FX-9370's case it being 4.4 Ghz while the FX-9590 boasting a base clock of 4.7 Ghz, in both cases Turbo Boost upping the clocks by 300 Mhz, to 4.7 Ghz and 5 Ghz, respectively.

But 90% of PC users don't overclock.... unless of course you have a perosanl contract with AMD??
I think you're being generous. I think fewer than that really overclock. Most people couldn't even tell you what a BIOS was, forget overclocking. I bet you that it's a fraction of a fraction.

With the advent of automated software overclocking like the OC genie's of this world, i asked them all last week and from the 337 million replies I got I concluded it was actually 9.7% so you are right :D

i think it will equal to core i7 2600k in performance

No one said a tower cooler wouldn't cool the FX-9590. However, a tower cooler or an AIO Liquid cooler are both special coolers. Your claim was that no special cooler would be required, which is wrong. If no special cooler was required then the stock AMD heatsink would be sufficient. I'd like to see you run an Vishera at 5.0GHz on the standard stock AMD heatsink to back up your assertion that no special cooling would be required.
You misunderstood my comment. I said that no special cooling is required for operation at the 5.0 GHz. frequency. A std. tower cooler isn't considered "special" cooling by most people who would buy a special 5.0 GHz. (expensive), CPU. "Special" in my comment meant water cooling or phase change.

You keep saying "a standard AMD heatsink"... A standard AMD heatsink is whatever AMD decides to ship with a particular processor. They vary in size and thermal capacity. If AMD decides to package a CLC as they did with the FX-8150 then that would be the "standard AMD cooler" for the FX-9590 CPU. If they decided to package a tower cooler with the FX-9590 CPU then that would be the "standard AMD cooler". The standard coolers tend to change with each processor model and generation.

For you we will call this FX series as 'Boob' edition :laugh:

Oh wait did we not have this same Boob edition topic long time ago?

It was always reported that the FX-9590 would run @ 5.0 GHz. in Turbo mode, not as a base clock. I don't believe the 220w is actually TDP but in fact total consumed power, which is not the same as TDP. Many people including me are running OC'd FX-8350's @ 4.7+ GHZ. on highend air cooling and even under 25 hours of P95 stress testing the CPU does not overheat. There is no reason to think the actual TDP on the FX-9590 is above 165w, IME.
The lack of fundemental Physics understanding is, again, staggering. This comes up all too often :cry:

Energy in = Energy out unless you have found a way to get around thermodynamics :confused:

I was actually searching for some OC FX gaming benchmarks and ran into this chart from bit-tech:

That's whack!
It was known that AMD chip is not good on this particular game.

I have over 400 real life friends in my facebook account, everybody with computer but nobody know what is "overclock cpu". I guess that 99% of computer user in the world NEVER O'clock.

I think that 1% has grown a little though, with the advent of software based auto overclocking like OC Genie and Easytune some just click the button and get a mild overclock.
