Last week AMD released its first 5 GHz 8-core CPUs. The two products just showed up in a webshop with the tier 1 SKY having an astronomical price (for what it is). The AMD FX-9370 8C is listed at 346 USD and the AMD FX-9590 8C costs a whopping 920 USD. 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 gains.
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
Check out the webshop here. I do want to make it clear that these could be highly inflated pre-order prices, in the past we have seen webshops do this often as there are always a few people placing a pre-order.
