AMD's Power House CPU Now Available in Stores
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.
