AMD announced a new powerhouse some time ago, the 8-core FX-9590, which is the world's first commercially available 5 GHz processor; however, the processor, along with its little brother, the 8-core FX-9370, was not available at that time. They are now though, as they have been seen at TigerDirect, selling for $829 for the FX-9590 and $329 for the FX-9370. The FX-9370 is also available in iBUYPOWER's gaming rigs, though at a slightly higher price of $353.34.

The FX-9590 has a base clock frequency of 4.7 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz, while FX-9370 has a base clock frequency of 4.4 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 4.7 GHz, and both feature eight Piledriver cores.

such a big difference in price for only 300mhz seems just not right tho.

Hmm. Seems links doesn't work in these replies.

Disregard those links. They aren't detailed enough, since they state no apparent differences.

And with a turbo of 5GHz what kind of headroom are we going to have for overclocking...

Are they only selling factory-overclocked 8350 into a new name? That is actual corporate bull... as much as Intel developing new processors 5-10% faster than last year's. Oh yeah, do they expect to sell any of those 9590 at that price, with ppl knowing that Piledriver isn't as fast as Sandy?

This better stomp a 3930k or it will be a waste of money.
