AMD cuts prices of A6 and A8 APUs; reveals price of A10-6790K
Nov 07, 2013: Last week AMD announced A10-6790K APU, which was positioned as a slightly slower, but also less expensive version of the flagship A10-6800K chip. Today the 6790K was added to AMD's official price list. Furthermore, the company added prices of FX-9370 and FX-9590 microprocessors for AM3+ platform. Finally, AMD reduced prices of A6-6400K, A8-6500 and A8-6600K models by 12% - 13%. The A6-6400K now costs $62, and the price of A8 SKUs was slashed from $112 to $97.

AMD FX-9000 CPUs with liquid cooling kit available in US
Oct 09, 2013: In September we reported that newer boxed versions of FX-9000 extreme microprocessors will soon be available bundled with a liquid cooling kit. Launched in June, the FX-9370 and FX-9590 packed 8 cores, 8 MB of L2 and 8 MB of L3 cache on a chip. The processors run at very high 4.4 and 4.7 GHz clock rates, and can reach even higher 4.7 and 5 GHz frequencies when a Turbo Core feature is activated. Since the FX-9370 and FX-9590 are effectively overclocked siblings of the FX-8350 model, they dissipate significantly more power and require a liquid cooling kit to operate.

AMD to offer FX-9370 and FX-9590 CPUs with a liquid cooling kit
Sep 27, 2013: Back in June AMD launched two high-performance 8-core FX Series chips, running at exceptionally high 4.4 and 4.7 GHz clock speeds. The processors were essentially top binned FX-83xx parts, overclocked to 4+ GHz, and overvolted to achieve higher frequencies. Overclocking/overvolting resulted in significantly increased power consumption, which led to AMD's recommendation to use liquid cooling kit with the CPUs. The first FX-9000 series processors were shipped in OEM PCs, and came with a liquid cooling, but the kit was not included in boxed FD9370FHHKWOF and FD9590FHHKWOF models.

ASRock and Gigabyte add support for AMD FX-9000 series CPUs
Jul 23, 2013: AMD FX-9370 and FX-9590 processors were launched last month, and only recently they started to appear in retail stores. The latest CPUs have the same number of cores and the same size of L3 cache as AMD FX-8300 series of chips, but they offer extreme performance, thanks to much higher base and Turbo Core frequencies. The prices and power consumption of FX-9000 series CPUs is also on the extreme side. The flagship FX-9590 costs more than $800, and has 220 Watt TDP.

AMD FX-9370 and FX-9590 CPUs are now available
Jul 13, 2013: Last month AMD launched two FX-9000 series microprocessors, aimed at high-end consumer market. The FX processors were planned to be shipped in desktop PCs first, and eventually become available in retail as boxed products. The CPUs boasted extremely high base clock frequencies, but they also had very price and power consumption. When launched, the FX processors were expected to perform as overclocked FX-8350 SKU, and recently posted benchmarks of the FX-9590 confirmed these expectations.

AMD FX-9370 and FX-9350 CPUs are available for pre-order
Jun 17, 2013: AMD created a stir last week by announcing two FX-9000 series processors, including "first ever 5 GHz" CPU. At the time, the company revealed only model numbers and a few features of new products. According to AMD press release, FX-9370 and FX-9590 eight-core processors have 4.7 GHz and 5 GHz maximum Turbo Core frequency, and unlocked clock multiplier. The CPUs were rumored to come with 4.4 GHz - 4.8 GHz base clock speeds, and Thermal Design Power, exceeding 200 Watt.

AMD announces FX-9370 and FX-9590 CPUs
Jun 12, 2013: At E3 show this week, AMD announced FX-9370 and FX-9590 extreme performance processors for computer enthusiasts. Both parts are based on "Piledriver" microarchitecture, and have 8 CPU cores. The FX-9590 is claimed to be the "First-Ever 5 GHz processor", when in fact this chip operates at lower than 5 GHz frequency, that was not disclosed, and has 5 GHz maximum Turbo Core speed. Obviously, the FX-9590 does not always operate at its maximum speed under load, therefore it cannot be called "5 GHz processor".

Starting in July 2014, top of the line FX 9590 processor was bundled with a CoolerMaster Seidon 120XL water cooler. They came in a large black box (11 in. x 10.5 in. x 5.5 in. / 28 cm x 26 cm x 14 cm) with front picture of a water-splashed processor. This water splash pattern has a raised texture.

These boxes contain: the CPU, case badge sticker, installation instructions with warranty information in multiple languages, and CoolerMaster Seidon 120XL closed loop liquid cooler. The Seidon 120XL is prefilled with coolant and sealed, and consists of: 120 mm x 38 mm radiator, pump, copper waterblock, two 120 mm fans, assorted hardware for installation on AMD-based motherboards (hardware for installation on Intel motherboards is not included), and install instructions.

In my limited experience, the FX-9590 seems to be very well binned compared to the regular 8300 series parts. I've been able to do 4.83 GHz at the stock VID and run World Community Grid for nearly a week. It hasn't crashed or produced invalid results as of yet. The 8350 I have can only do 4.30 GHz under the same conditions.
