    AMD FX-9590 hits 5GHz with 8 cores, shipping through Value Added Resellers

    No word on TDP or recommended cooling solutions for these likely specially binned Piledriver FX's CPU's:

    E3 -- AMD today unveiled its most powerful member of the legendary AMD FX family of CPUs, the world's first commercially available 5 GHz CPU processor, the AMD FX-9590. These 8-core CPUs deliver new levels of gaming and multimedia performance for desktop enthusiasts. AMD FX-9000 Series CPUs will be available initially in PCs through system integrators.

    "At E3 this week, AMD demonstrated why it is at the core of gaming," said Bernd Lienhard, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Products Division at AMD. "The new FX 5 GHz processor is an emphatic performance statement to the most demanding gamers seeking ultra-high resolution experiences including AMD Eyefinity technology. This is another proud innovation for AMD in delivering the world's first commercially available 5 GHz processor."

    "AMD continues to push the envelope when it comes to desktop capabilities and power performance," said Wallace Santos, CEO and founder of MAINGEAR. "In unveiling the world's first 5 GHz 8-core CPU, AMD continues to lead the way in innovation while providing our customers with a best-in-class experience. We are thrilled to be part of this exciting launch."

    The new 5 GHz FX-9590 and 4.7 GHz FX-9370 feature the "Piledriver" architecture, are unlocked for easy overclocking and pave the way for enthusiasts to enjoy higher CPU speeds and related performance gains1. Additionally, these processors feature AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology to dynamically optimize performance across CPU cores and enable maximum computing for the most intensive workloads.

    AMD was the first to break the 1 GHz barrier in May of 2000 and continues to set the standard in technology innovation including the first Windows compatible 64-bit PC processor and the first native dual-core and quad-core processors. AMD also introduced the first APU (unifying CPU and Radeon™ graphics on the same chip) and the first x86 quad-core SoC, continuing forward with HSA architectures and programming models.

    The new AMD FX CPUs will be available from system integrators globally beginning this summer. Two models will be available:
    • FX-9590: Eight "Piledriver" cores, 5 GHz Max Turbo
    • FX-9370: Eight "Piledriver" cores, 4.7 GHz Max Turbo

    I noticed it said distribution through their system integrators initially? - Does that mean Newegg will get these eventually? Just curious as could/would be very interested in the 5Ghz cpu depending on price point.

      No retail sales at this time, going to VAR/SI's first because they can use them the most to get systems out there.

      I do expect a retail launch at some point, probably with liquid cooler.

        I read an article with very high resolutions benchmarks like 1920x1080, 4000x and 5000x with 2x 7970 cfs..Also the CPU's were an FX8350 vs I5 3500 series...The FX8350 had an oc to 4.4 ghz..At this clock the FPS gain over stock was neglijable...I see the new FX 9000 at 5ghz kinda useless release unless your are really a collector or an AMD enthuazist..

          Well, some games are heavily dependent on that single threaded cpu performance. For example civilization 5 (and 4). So this might be good. Also this will have what, 140W TDP? And 200W power draw?

            I read TDP is about 220

                  A manufacturer warranted 5GHz proc & mobo combination could be attractive for some people. Depends on the cost.

                    Not cheap I suspect. But that will be one power hungry PC. They should give you a complimentary water cooling system with every purchase

                      Imagine this CPU with tri GTX 480 SLI....power consumption would be sky rocket! And it would be useful to be a heater for winter time.

                        I'd sell it as a package with a CL WC like there is for the FX 8350, but a 200mm rad design. Or as bare CPU, lapped.

                          Imagine using that in the summer with no AC

                          I hope this performs well and sells decent but AMD also needs to do a die shrink to get standard retail 5Ghz 8 core chips with lower TDPs but eh... not holding my breath
