you speak without knowing what the CPU can do... What if the FX-9590 can OC to 5,5 GHz or 5,7???? Then what? i am not an AMD fanboy (as u can see i have the 2600k in my system)...

I would have been all over this as a BASE PRICE for the OriginPC with an FX-9590
$900CPU + $200Mobo + $100Memory + $100 Liquid Cooling or killer Air Cooling + $50HDD + $100 Video card + $100PSU; then you can throw pm $1000 GTX Titan, SSD, etc. but seriously; not being able to buy a BASIC package to get it into an enthusiast's hands, this might as well not exist (the newegg offers are ridiculous; can't pick your PSU, the water cooling is likely barely up to the task, $2,000 and no case? etc.)

Lol so basically your paying for a FX 8350 that is OC to 4.8ghz. Turbo at 5.0ghz which will be 4cores at 5.0ghz not 8 correct? So basically this $900 cpu is a 8350 andyou just paid whoever 4700 to overclock it. Where do i sign up.....NOT!

dont be fooled it seems like all FX cpu's have a 5.0ghz wall barrier. If anything maybe you can OC it more through Turbo. Been a while since i even messed with this option in the BIOS. I got the FX 6100 when it came out couple years ago and it was ok but still to this day i use and abuse my true 6 core AMD Phenom II x6 1055T, love this cpu. I will say this, i have a benchmark floating around on one of these OC sites with a OC on the FX 6100 at 5.2ghz on Antec closed loop water cooling. They seem to hit a wall at 5.0ghz, took me a while and some tinkering to get that 5.2ghz,even then the performance seemed meh.

There are already reviews on the 9590 on the line. It basically performs worse than all 2nd Gen+ Quad-Core i7 and the Six-Core i7s. At the Price of ~$900 I would by the Six-Core i7 or save money and go with a i7.

The processor is already rated at 200-220W. Overclocking won't be that easy.

This chip isn't going to OEMs only because of the high TDP, but because their aren't enough of them to go to e-tailers w/o them selling out in the first week.

aka very small supply

It's a cherry picked 8350, its not going to justify its price under normal cooling.

I don't get it. Why would anyone want this CPU. It cost like twice as much as a 4770k, runs crazy HOT, uses tons of power, can't overclock nearly at all and did I mention it's NINE-HUNDRED dollars. I understand the 8350, super competitive for the price but AMD messed up this one. Any Socket 2011 CPU will beat this and a 4770k can easily match/beat it. (And they cost hundreds less)

I've been a massive AMD fan since the days of the K5/6. The days the Athlon got unleashed won them two important victories. Price and performance. Maybe not by far but a victory that lasted for quite a while. Then things changed into Intel's favor but still, I hanged on and got two Phenom II 550 machines, unlocked the extra cores and enjoyed a massive performance gain for very little money. Now that core unlocking is a thing of the past and the FX dissapoints with gaming, I finally went with an i5 3570K and never looked back again.
While AMD enjoys an achievement for being the first at 5Ghz, it's still a bitter pilll to swallow if you consider that for gaming:
a) It's performance is hardly on par with a stock i5 3570K
b) It costs considerably more
c) It consumes drastically more power
d) It's can't really be overclocked much further
e) It's is only available to OEMs. Etc etc.

I don't know but I don't see a major achievement here...
