Eh, it's pretty low for them to claim it's a 5Ghz chip, when it only boosts up to 5Ghz. The 8320 isn't advertised as a 4Ghz chip, though it will boost to that.

Heavily binned chips searching for a person to push them for a world record ;)
Glad to see somebody comprehends what this chip is for.

you can get good clockers for extra money. i know a dude here who was selling i5 2500ks for triple the price. he had a deal with a distributer.

It's a PR thing, nothing like being first. :laugh:

Between that and pushing AMD's name all over the news. Which this chip is rather effective at. What's sad is there are still rumors this will be a further tweaked core vs just binning. It may actually be better clock for clock. Something like E0 vs C3 Phenoms.

if you only spent 900.00 on a intel comp .. or any comp .. i would not call it a gaming rig lol
Then I would not call you a gamer!

There are tonnes of games you can play on a $400 PC.

Thanks for the explanation. I knew they existed just didn’t realize they were that much. Hopefully that is what going on here. But shouldn’t they be more then? I guess we will see

I hope AMD sells everyone they can make...to people with WAY too much money! :laugh:

Me, I'll stick with an OC'd 4.6 GHz. FX-8350 that cost $200.

It's not the initial price, it's the upkeep - your power bill will double, from running the CPU, and from the air conditioning working overtime to keep your house cool.

At least the Titan is the fastest GPU out there. This 9590 will almost certainly get stomped by the much cheaper 3930k, possibly even the 4770k. The reason the Titan is overpriced is because AMD can't compete with it. The reason this CPU is overpriced is because ????? Seems to me just a way to badly rip off your less educated fans.

These CPU's are for 'uber' overclocking if what people on here are saying is correct - and i have no reason to believe they are not.

The Titan is absolutely not for 'uber' overclocking due to the Kepler voltage limits.

They are totally different sports, let alone leagues. Titan is the fastest performing single gpu, this is not expected to be the fastest performing cpu.

I bought a Titan, I certainly wouldn't buy this (I'm not a pro-overclocker). But I understand it's merits.

Is there any evidence for this? I've not paid close attention to this release other than to giggle at the silly pricing so I might have missed something important, but I've not come across any verified evidence of it being a meaningfully better overclocker than the 83xx chips.

I don't think it will overclock very well, 10% max considering its overclocked a lot as it is. 220watts is already insane amount power.

For a chip to be able to withstand 220W for 24/7 use is actually pretty incredible. Try pushing 220W through IVB or Haswell. :roll:

However, TDP isn't power drawn...it's max cooling needed. So we could say that rather than a 130W cooler for FX-8350, these new chips need a 220W cooler.

And just for the record, my 8350 can do 5.0 GHz just fine. And at stock, it draws more power at times than that 130W...I recorded 154W, actually. So these chips could potentially draw even more...but I don't think they will.

They've had probably well over a year of possible time spent binning to find these chips, they could be chips that pull <150W, for all we know. I'm hoping AMD will send me one for review purposes...
