AMD FX-9370 and FX-9350 CPUs are available for pre-order

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.

The rumors were confirmed last Thursday, when TechReport published missing specifications of both chips. Based on them, the FX-9370 and FX-9590 CPUs operate at 4.4 GHz and 4.7 GHz, and they do have 220 Watt TDP. Although AMD indicated that initially both chips will be available only through system integrators, boxed versions of FX-9370 and FX-9590 already surfaced in some US online stores. None of the stores have the chips in stock, though. One store, PCSuperstore, currently lists the FX-9590 model for $920.31. The FX-9370 can pre-ordered for $576.27. The boxed FX processors have FD9370FHHKWOF and FD9590FHHKWOF part numbers, and the "WOF" suffix suggests that the boxes do not come with a fan/heatsink. The prices are lower than prices of Intel Core i7-3930K and i7-3960X extreme processors, but not much lower. With prices this high and extremely high power requirements, it remains to be seen how successful FX-9000 products will be.

most of the 990fx boards can support a 220w tdp specially the flagship boards and when you overclock a 8350 to 5ghz is uses 220w or so and alot overclockers are doing that so the boards can support it the real issue is having the cooling that can handle it these cpus will need water cooling or atleast a really big heatsink i hope these can overclock to 5.6ghz or higher which would be 300w+ tdp that would be insane

220W. Over US$500.

Nope, that's not going to fly.

I wished it was more like 140W (done it before!) and US$300. That would have been a win.

Please AMD, come back stronger and put some pressure on Intel!

Overpriced
