Lets be fair, even the 3930K and 3970X have lousy performance for the price too. Spending $1000+ on a CPU whether Intel or AMD isn't exactly ticking the performance/economic box.

Price aside, atleast AMD can say that out the box, at stock speeds they've got prospectively the fastest CPU. You'd have to overclock your i7 to match it's performance. Unlike the Pentium 560 and 570 which got creamed by low end Semprons at stock speed.
Ofcourse, but you will get a whole lot more for your money, even at the pricepoint of 3930/3970 and the 9590

People who can afford a $1000 cpu don't care about the price, they will just buy it.

The people who buy this are not going to be joe schmo, and will probably already know about comparisons with other intel cpu's, they are going to buy this because it is specially binned by amd and are probably going to put it under LN2 etc.

I don't really see the point of arguing over the price tbh, If you think it is too expensive then you probably can't afford it or don't understand the point of it.

AMD obviously know what they are doing releasing this and are targeting a specific market/person.

the price tag says it all. no one, no company and no gamer is buying this for commercial/domestic use! (my beliefs)

at stock speeds its on par with a 5ghz 8350, which is heavily dependant on RAM!

a 5ghz 8350 needs about 1.5-1.6v for 5ghz this 9590 stock 1.5v. the 8350 has a cpunb of 2200mhz stock and overclocks to about 2700mhz max, 9590 2700mhz stock


i believe this chip with the right mobo and RAM will smash the hell out of old AMD records and MOAR!

problem is you'll need a motherboard that can run the nb at 2700 guaranteed. not all are capable of that. and i dont know of any board out at the moment that support 220w tdps.

however, even the best setup wont cover up the fact that this is an overclocked $200 chip being masqueraded as an elitist part and being sold at $1000.

its an overclocked 8350, while being a 9590 at stock speeds. For sure!


and for the cpunb, more voltage would cure that lol

most 990FXs will probably handle this, just not an overclocked 9590. the phase design would need to be decent. and from what ive heard, theres a few manufacturers releasing updated bioses for this. - not my words!

Its probably not a overclocked $200 CPU, my guess is, these are from the best bin AMD currently has. There is probably no 8350 that can run at this clock out of the box. AMD knows these will run at 5ghz out of the box, that's why its sold as a 5ghz cpu.

Also who really cares what the tdp is. I don't think these are meant for joe to put in his machine with a $40 air cooler, if you buy this then you know the cooling requirements and will have appropriate cooling for it.

Why are people mad at AMD ? Intel's R&D is in billions (maybe) AMD R&D is in millions no way they can keep up with the monster , and Haswell didn't exactly knock it out of the park and thats with AMD nibbling at its heels (tiny nibbles ) imagine how Haswell would look if there were no AMD . Even if someone were strictly a Intel buyer it would be in there interest if AMD did well . AMD needs a big breakthru by one of there lab guys .

I had read that the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 rev.3 is supposed to support these but it still lists a 8+2 design in the specs :confused:

Not in the one metric that counts with these chips , intel are a ways off 9ghz on any of there platform's but I do agree ln2 results dont really matter that much and is a pure competitive pr show much like any world record attempt is , the fact you and I think they are wacky and overpriced is completely irrelevant , intel on the other hand charge a premium for most chips and top end consumer chips are way overpriced for the performance increase yet these arent special cases , intel universally slaps ass on price And feature killing But thats ok I ssuppose because they are technically (with intel compilers anyway) quicker.
Well maybe if AMD invested some money into a compiler of their own they would have a compiler.

Read below or two posts up from yours when that was answered the first time.

Origin pc already has it listed.
Well maybe if AMD invested some money into a compiler of their own they would have a compiler.
Any avx based compiler shows large improvements with an amd processor however most of them are set up to not allow anything that isn't intel to use that code path.

how much money amd have?
Rubbish. AMD have never been that interested even when they were showing a healthy profit. It seems to be a favourite excuse to use AMD's financial situation now to justify their failings when the truth of the matter is that Jerry Sanders was more interested in spunking cash for lavish parties and satisfying his ego. Cash plowed into a compiler when AMD started working on their own architecture with NexGen/K6 would have reaped a better return than a bunch of "look at me" Christmas parties
Bear in mind that for a supposedly poor company, AMD generally carried $5-7bn in assets against less than $2bn in debt up until the ATI acquisition.

Maybe the people that overclock this chip know how to overclock the motherboard or rig it somehow if thats possible .
no....just no. overclocking the motherboard-and by that, i mean overclocking the northbridge-has nothing to do with it. it's based on how much power the vrms on the motherboard can support. the current 12 phase motherboards have 140 watt support. you would need enough to run a 220 watt tdp. that kind of board would be very expensive (just like this processor...) and would sell very few total boards. I doubt any company will take a gamble on this thing when making a 3rd party board.

Though you aren't wrong I don't see how this is Ot but anyways amd works to open standards and in doing so are in some areas held back ,like compilers with most amd favoured ones leveraging open tech and standards from partners , this could end up being the right path with Hsa though at least imho.
@ insanegamer do you think my chip is pulling 125 watts at 5ghz 1.52core volts on an 8+2 crosshair v , I've no doubt the crosshair Z would have no issues and if mine gets a bios update id be able to run one though my ocing would be limited.
