    I meant for the guy I quoted, not me. Today's cisc chips are risc past the decoder and sequencer.

    One for my netbook just an old TK42. Poor old LT3103u is getting a higher watt chip stuffed in it.

    There's a photo I saw floating around showing 1.5v under load for the cores.

    Athlon X2 (mobile) it's a low watt chip to replace my Athlon X2 L310 which replaced the Athlon L110 that was in my netbook originally.

    TK-42, L310, L110

    He had turbo turned off and the frequency hard set to 5ghz I wouldn't be suprised if the real CPU is different.

    It's not a terrible $30 upgrade :p Only thing I wish I could swap was the X1270 onboard for an HD3200 :toast:

    Thats what I expected. When I had my FX8150 it took 1.5v to get 5ghz

    Wow, so that's all this over priced cpu is :wtf:

    Oh, I guess it was the pics in this thread that I was talking about. :laugh:

    Is it on the VR-Zone forum that the person said they disabled turbo?

    Actually, it's just a new bin that is still with in AMD spec which could be different depending on how much your FX took to be stable. Even then, even an overclocked CPU may not pass certain tests as the P3 1.16Ghz did for Tom's and [H] back in the day.

    AMD didn't contact me this time about doing the review, which was rather surprising considering our large AMD user base, but I have heard from a few reviewers I talk to that they have chips already, so I expect reviews soon myself. I have a board sitting here waiting for this chip's review, even. Will have to send an email!

    My 8350 did 5 GHz, too, would be quite interesting to compare differences.

    I would buy it if it is $250 :). I have a 8120, I'm upgrading to a 8350 and OC it to 5GHz with Noctua D14 if this isn't $250...

    LOL i know of 8350s that are nearly scoring 10k physics in 3d11. in firestrike physics i can hit 10,300.

    i want mine to hit 9.5k today 3d11 physics


    just an oc'd version it looks like. 9590 at 5ghz for £700...... or i could go through a few 8350s lol

    unless someone overclocks this to 6.2ghz on water or they reach 9+ ghz on dice/ln2, what a waste

    to quote: Kitguru says: An interesting release from AMD to target system builders, but we can’t help but feel it is a little like bringing a knife to a gunfight.

    This isn't for typical system builders.

    It's for people whom are trying to break records and people whom want memorabilia of having a limited edition CPU for sentimental reasons or for financial appreciation to resell.

    Why would AMD launch a 5GHz FX-8350 and re-brand it as a FX-9590? They must've done some incremental revision of architecture. Kinda like the FX6100 and FX-6200. Besides, I honestly don't care if a 4770K is 5.5% faster, AMD couldn't look any better. :rockout::rockout:

    So this CPU is even more fail than it looked like on paper. Doesn't overclock hardly at all on air, can't keep up with stock Haswell i7s in gaming, and at its very *best* keeps up with stock SB-E chips from Intel in a couple synthetics.

    This chip is so bad it makes Bulldozer look like God's gift to CPUs.

    im seeing mixed reviews on this chip, some can get 5ghz stable with little extra volts and some need loads more and still cant get stable.

    obviously its an highly binned 8350, but a lil more refined. but i get the feeling motherboards cant handle it, as to make reviews so diverse.

    worth the cash NO, unless someone breaks 10ghz on extreme cooling.
