Waiting for the first post of a 9590 owner asking why his chip is slower then a 3930K even tho it costs more :roll:

just like wasting money on a cpu when ya would do the same on either regardless of performance..........

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***
As you can see the 9370 is pretty normal pricing for that style chip. Out of curiosity what's lackluster about your 8350? overclock or are you actually seeing performance issues?

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.
You can order them for $828 off of tiger right now. My 9370 has already shipped off of the same site they are out or tiger messed up.

It is going to be a rare chip. There wont be a million of them. :laugh:

Now that would be an idiot worth laughing At.
Just like the guys nemesis ,moaning his I7 won't even do 7 ghz mever mind 9 ,,clarify your mind , I will , these are not for you if system cooling is passive To You or you don't need gloves to oc.

my 8350 isnt a good overclocker, needs 1.52v for 4.7/4.8 prime stable

saying that tho 1.6v kicks out about the same heat as 1.5v

im contemplating one of these chips and selling mine, but ill wait to see reviews/results first!

and ive always been curious of extreme overclocking..............LOL

As opposed to people paying 50-60% more on a i7-3770K than a FX-8350, while it being nowhere near that much faster and even slower in some cases, right?

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

Not sure where you guys get your info from, but any program that uses 1-7 threads, 3770k wins easy. even 8 threaded app's 8350 at best matches 3770k.

Its still a toss up with less than 8 threads depending on coding. It is also doing it at half the cost.

Are you serious? You cant even make that comparison

4770K - 8350 is a 150 dollar difference
9590 to 4770K is a 480 dollar difference

No its not even close on anything with less then 8 threads, its hand down the intel that stomps AMD cpu.

You do realize that less programs being used, are able to thread up to all 8 cores of an 8350, performance diff grows for intel side? 1-4 its all Intel, 5-8 gap does start to close for AMD as it gets close to 8. Throw on top of power consumption being a bit lower on intel.

lmao, ohwell Im glad AMD is pushing something in the Uber Market like how Intel did with the P4EE, AMD is moving forward Intel seems to not be doing much- Moving to haswell would be a waste for those with skt 1155.

Piledriver proved to be enough of a gain in performance for majority of bulldozer users to switch. Steamroller should be a good chip architecturally

That must be why there are applications that the fx4300/6300 are competitive with the 3570k. That cool all research I have done is wrong and you are always correct. With your 37 posts of pro-intel banter and 4770k god forbid an amd outperforms that.

Getting mighty tired of all the bickering, mostly the pro-Intel people.

Every processor has its place. This one, as others have said, is not intended to be a mainstream processor.

I am envious. I would imagine they messed up since it's not even going to a product page now.

Yea I noticed the pages stopped working I wonder if they ran out of chips already?
