AMD launches two new eight-core FX-Series CPUs

Meet the 5GHz FX-9590

As rumored earlier, AMD has now officially announced two new FX-Series CPUs based on the Piledriver CPU architecture, the FX-9590 and the FX-9370. Both announced CPUs are eight-core SKUs and a part of AMD's Vishera series with 32nm Piledriver CPU architecture and AMD managed to bring the maximum Turbo clock speed of the FX-9590 to 5.0GHz.

According to AMD, these new CPUs, including the 5.0GHz FX-9590, are an emphatic performance statement aimed at those gamers seeking ultra-high resolutions wiht AMD Eyefinity technology. Both are unlocked for easier overclocking, feature AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology and, although not officially confirmed, should have the same 220W TDP.

Unfortunately, AMD did not announce the precise specs but since they are pretty much the FX-8350 on steroids, we are looking at 4x2MB of L2 and 8MB of L3 cache and 1866MHz DDR3 memory support. AMD only announced the Turbo clocks for both parts set at 5.0GHz for the FX-9590 and 4.7GHz for the FX-9370 but if they share that much details with the FX-8350, you can expect the base clock to be set at 4.8GHz for the FX-9590 and 4.5GHz for the FX-9370.

AMD also did not shed any light on actual retail availability or the price of the new FX-Series CPUs as these will be initially available only for system integrators.

We will surely keep an eye out for them and hopefully we will see a benchmark or two soon.
