    AMD FX-9370, which has been available only through the OEM channel, could soon be generally available in its PIB (processor-in-box) packaging. The chip will bear the retail SKU "FD9370FHW8KHK," and retail at a price point that's just under $270 (excl. taxes). There's no clarity on whether the PIB package will include a cooling solution, given that the chip retains the 220W TDP figures from other FX-9000 series parts, such as the FX-9590. Based on the 32 nm "Vishera" silicon, the FX-9370 is an eight-core socket AM3+ processor based on the "Piledriver" micro-architecture. It features out of the box clock speeds of 4.40 GHz, with 4.70 GHz maximum TurboCore frequency. It features 16 MB of total cache (L2 + L3).

    "Who cares about this? Just give us Steamroller already, dang it! ...And not only in APU form - give us FX Steamrollers in AM3+ too, please!"
    just my 0.02€

    Yeah, AMD should gives us some word on the 'roller there at least once in a while :(

    Yeah, its striking that there still is zero info about steamroller as a standalone CPU. However, when looking at the amount of info that was apparently succesfully kept secret when it comes to the R9 290X, I'm not sure if the lack of info means AMD actually isn't planning on making such a CPU at all.

    However! usually they synchronize their consumer high-end CPU's with their server CPU's, and on that front the news is kinda depressing: the only thing that was announced on that front as a matter of fact is an updated SKU based on piledriver for 2014. Soo that doesn't really sound promising.

    I am a fan of AMD but if they are not going to do something new, much more powerful than FX-8350 which allow them to keep up with Intel I may consider to move to competitor.

    I'll consider these next time I need to shop for a heater for my home.
    Vinska and Assimilator say thanks.

    AMD need to improve their singlethread performance.
    Multithread is good but not many games and programs can take full of advantage.

    Hey, let's give credit where it's due... at least the heater is efficient at what it does.

    A heater just heats. While a chip like this turns the same amount of electricity into the same amount of heat while at the same time calculating things!
    Show me a conventional heater that can also help the humanity with things like This along with heating up the space? You can't!
    This CPU > conventional heater.

    It's a bird!

    It's a man!

    It's a rocket!

    It's a heater with an integrated x86-64 CPU!

    Intel isn't doing much better really. Market is completely stagnated which is what I figured would happen if Intel had no competition. Same thing that nVidia has done. Never seen a dominant company continue to innovate after they completely have the market. Heck, Apple falls under that and thanks to that Android/etc have made a strong comeback.

    No more CPUs from AMD..only APUs.

    With HUMA and other such technologies, this may not be a bad thing. I honestly am more interested in the apu's.

    bta didn't say the APUs will not have more than 4 cores :p

    8 core APU is fine with me.

    If they would`ve gotten it on a 140W TDP (that AMD used before on some Phenoms and server parts) and sold it for ~$250, and name it less randomly, it would been a win... but this... WTF AMD?

    And I think it would`ve been plausible, w/ Richland`s new power tricks and whatnot. I`ve seen people hit 5,2ghz 24/7 on water on them, without insane voltage & power usage increase.

    Isn't the Core i7 an "APU" after all? it got an HD4000 GPU... if you can call that a GPU,
    oh well nevermind... :p
