FX-8350 vs FX-9590 specifications comparison

The charts below demonstrate the difference between FX-9590 and AMD FX-8350 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
