    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    It appears there are tweaks to the memory controller too:

    http://translate.google.com/translat...ion-1073412%2F

    2400MHZ DDR3 is validated to work with the new AMD CPUs. However the TDP is still conjecture.

    Edit!!

    This might confirm the 220W TDP:

    http://translate.google.com/translat...5-ghz-tdp-220w

    Looking at the cooling solution suggested though,which are an H80i or Kuhler 920,these seem no worse than many people use for overclocked higher end AMD and Intel CPUs.

    Second Edit!!

    It seems there is no 2400MHZ DDR3 support according to the second article.

    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    So this is essentially a pre-overclocked chip?

    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    So it will only boost up to those speeds, not actually run at those speeds?

    Just ordered an FX-8350, still happy I ordered the right part.

    It's sad that this 5GHz chip from AMD will still be slower than a 3.4GHz Haswell... We need you back in the game AMD! Intel domination is bad for all us consumers.

    Also 220W TDP is just silly. I thought the whole Resonant Clock Mesh thing was meant to allow these frequencies without masses of heat...?

    Well yes, but really that's a 3.8Ghz Haswell, let's compare like with like.
    I wonder what the core speed of the 9590 will be.

    I bet it'll still be a third of the price of the equivilent Intel chip though.

    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    Clock speed between microarchitectures is essentially irrelevant now, assuming that's what you mean?

    Nevertheless, if the TDP is true this is no mainstream part. Still, the hysteria over the TDP is somewhat misplaced IMO - while it would be nice to get super high bins for the price, even 220W is not especially high compared to overclocked chips anyway. It's likely not terribly good value if it's essentially just a pre-overclocked/certified standard bin though.

    Umm I doubt it, the FX-8350 is £150 and this is going to be significantly more exclusive than that.

    I really don't think that AMD is going to beat Intel at the CPU game in the next 3 years because AMD is so focused on raw power and cheap ass cores, while Intel is using efficiency to obtain true power. Holy crap, 255W TDP? Intel has nothing to worry about.

    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    The people who buy this wont care about the TDP, just getting the fastest chip they can clever move by AMD I think, cant compete at stock so go for the insane, people who want the fastest but dont want to overclock i.e Alienware customers ect will love this.

    Good Marketing as well.

    Will the chip come with a frying pan accessory? It'd make good bacon'n'eggs

    Re: News - AMD set to release 5GHz-clocked FX-9590 CPU

    I'm not believing the 220W TDP stuff.

    The way I read it, it can boost to 5.0GHz, up from the 4.2 in the current rather cheap 8350.

    That's only a 20% boost, and if it is on one module only then I don't see why that can't be done in the 140W limit of most high end motherboards. I would have thought that by now the usual gradual process improvements should be knocking down the actual power usage of the 8350, it has been out for a while now.

    Don't fall for the PR. What true desktop enthusiast gives a [y'know] about efficiency?

    Frankly, we should be encouraging AMD to do this sort of thing. We, as enthusiasts, will be regretting it if we don't - when we're stuck with no-upgradeable laptop-grade parts in our gaming rigs
