AMD new fx-9000 series CPUs run at 5 Ghz

AMD FX-9000 series processors include the flagship FX-9590 which would feature eight x86 Piledriver core and comes at a max turbo clock of 5 GHz with base frequency of 4.7 GHz. These are the absolute limits for a normal processor but the best part is that due to the higher TDP of 220W which may require additional cooling offers additional room for overclocking.


The FX-9000 series also includes the FX-9370 which comes with a max turbo speed of 4.7 GHz with base clock speed of 4.4 GHz. Again, this is much higher than the speeds AMD offers on their FX-8000 Vishera lineup. The FX-9370 also comes with a 220W TDP but additional room for overclocking is available. Both processors come with the latest AMD Turbo Boost 3.0 technology which dynamically optimizes performance across CPU cores and enable maximum computing for the most intensive workloads. The pricing has not been mentioned.
That's a bit less than double the TDP of the fx-8000, and they use the same AM3+ socket.
What the heck will you use to cool this beast?

Keep an eye out for reviews.

Here is my hope that they got something right.

8 32-bit cores, sounds bad, to be honest I don't know what the disadvantages are. Phenom II use 64-bit cores, don't they?

You know something I think AMD is pulling Shenanigans on everyone because seriously they could have done this already I think what they have been doing is purposely doing bad and teasing us with Chips with slight Improvements

I'm not trying to bring a Conspiracy theory out there but it sure as hell sounds like one I already ran my chip to 5ghz with out double the TDP so how is this supposed to make everything better by just giving it 5 ghz and potential extra clocking when normal people are doing it already ?????

Hi there
X-86 -- who uses those any more -- it's a bit like using old tin cans and bits of string for telephone communication instead of fibre optic for physical lines and and microwaves (1.2 - 2.2 GHZ) for mobiles. Even a tiny tablet has an equivalent of a 64 bit CPU.

I'll take a decent i7 over any of this AMD stuff any day --and the newer lower power consuming Intel Haswell chips look fantastically good too. Intel has done its homework correctly this time.

http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/1/438...u-need-to-know

With these the AMD offering is bound to be DOA and truly DAB (Dead on Arrival and Dead and Buried).

These Haswells just about blow anything AMD has just straight out of the water -- AMD it was nice knowing you but your time is well and truly up now I'm afraid. The reduction in Power consumption is also absolutely astounding too making portable devices which use these have much longer battery times. These are also intended for high end machines as well as portables.

Be aware also that increasing the number of cores also imposes restraints on the system as the overhead of managing these increases very quickly as the number of cores is increased - for example 8 cores won't give you 8 * the performance of a single core.

Cheers

What do you mean?

They seem to be a stopgap until they get the Kaveri on the shelves, that should be a pretty interesting product actually, if the HUMA terchnology they use works as intended.

Now I'm going to open a thread about the first releases of Kaveri as well.

I don't know what the disadvantages are for a 32-bit core compared to a 64-bit.

ok, but where is written that it's a 32-bit core? Pliledriver is a 32 nm core, but that's the smallest possible size of the manufacturing process (nm stands for nanometers). It's an AMD64 instruction set so it's a 64-bit. Or not?

Just hope the new FX-9590 at stock speed is faster or at least on the level of an i5 4670K at 4.0 GHz speeds, and the price is around ~ $ 189.99. This would definitely attract consumers and make Intel run for their money.

Where are you guys getting 32 bit from?

They probably meant 32 nm process like bobafetthotmail wrote. The CPU is definitely x86-64 not x86 only. Anyways, it would be absurd if AMD's CPU can only support 32-bit Operating Systems.
