first is that can beat some good basic i7 like 3930k or even 3770k ?

And on top of that you will have to spend another $20+ due to increase power consumption per month..

Toss a non-single threaded app up against the 8350 and it competes/beats with the 3770K.

No you don't (at least in the US) .08-.12kwh. Means under 100% load for 8-12 hours a day you might see a major difference.

At $0.12/kwh, assuming about a 100w difference in power consumption and 8 hours of use a day, it works out to about $3 a month extra.

Wow that's a lot lets make a huge deal out of a possible $3 a month ($36 in an entire year).

You will need to crunch and fold pretty hard for that 100w.

$700 for an upgrade you sure its not just $200 for the cpu to drop into the last gen of boards? 890fx supports vishera just fine.
If they release this cpu at $850+ I am counting that as a roughly $700 upgrade from bulldozer / piledriver

$350 for the 9370 do you need that 300 gimmick mhz?

$910.99 Thats still cheaper then a Sandy 3960x at $1,069.99 for 3.3ghz !....Yeah I know apples to oranges .
Yea But that 3690x is a 6 core part that would be faster on top of almost 100 less watt TDP. heck even going with a 3930k which is same TDP part and half the price would be faster then both these AMD's

There is no reason why AMD should not cash in just like Intel does - on the clueless.

Just the standard 9370 it's going to have DICE on it when I get back home so we will see how it does. Hopefully I don't kill my motherboard this time. :laugh:

I wasn't talking about the 9370, nor was this article. That's a different discussion.

Of course your not because it doesn't fit into your conclusion. Let me reiterate this again. The FX 9590 is not a consumer level processor, it is designed like the AMD TWKR chip was, the ONLY goal for the 9590 was to have the first 5ghz processor and likely to break the 9ghz barrier.

but has it been publisiced as a one-off golden chip?!

tbh im still sceptical, this is the third pricing for the 9*** chips. and nothing has hit the headlines of it coming out or results/benches - a grand opening!

i cant wait for people to get these and post results, because im fed up of my lackluster 8350 and am really tempted to build a new rig (intel maybe) or upgrade to said 9***

My conclusion is that the 9590 is priced like a joke and anyone who buys one with their own money should be ashamed. Explanations for the joke don't change that it's a joke.

I dunno why you're trying to broaden the discussion out with me in particular, because I don't think there's much interesting to talk about with the rest of this CPU lineup.
