AMD FX-9590 5 GHz Processor Benchmarks Surface, Great Performance At A Price

Eagerly waiting to see how the so-called 5 GHz processor from camp AMD performs in the real world? Well, some lucky user over at VR-Zone forums got a chance to get this hands dirty with the yet-to-be on sale AMD FX-9590 processor, and decided to post his benchmark scores with all of us (much to our joy).

While the performance of AMD's fastest and hottest babe till date is no-doubt good, it comes at the price of an exorbitantly high 220W TDP, and of course a near $1000 price tag (if reports turn out to be 100% true). The CPU vCore is running at a high 1.5v, but then again we've always seen AMD chips operate at higher voltages than their Intel counterparts. No doubt, despite all this, system builders are going to have a gala time going ape over the 5 GHz FX-9590.



More results follow.

That is a very sensible price for that chip! :eek:

Now then, the cost of a motherboard able to support it ...

That didn't take long. :roll:
I guess its only a matter of time before all those people that railed against Nvidia for insulting Titan owners by releasing the GTX 780 and devaluing their purchase will now do likewise for those poor early (4 weeks ago) adopters of the FX-9590 :rolleyes:

5GHz Smartphone?? That's even a worse product than the 9590. If one can find proper use for a 1GHz Dual Core phone I'd be surprised.

I bog my Galaxy S3 down all the time. It's easy to max out a dual core phone.

You have no earthly Idea how TDP works
Not my fault you missed the point. Oh well. Try connecting the different systems to a watt meter and get back to me.

AsRock Fatal1ty 990FX update: AsRock support contacted me two weeks ago stating that bios v 1.90 does support the latest monstrosity that AMD calls an FX processor. Figured I'd throw it out there in case somebody wants to waste money.

Surely you missed the point ;), a month ago and with the price drop they are looking a bit better
