Began selling the most powerful processors from AMD
Can a company Advanced Micro Devices, and more is not going to directly compete with Intel, but that does not stop her from continuing to produce really powerful processors. Rejection of direct competition only means that the company decided to follow their own agenda, rather than trying to adapt to a competitor and once again give rise to holivarov on technical forums.
The best proof of this was the announcement of the 9000-th line of processors series FX, two of which – the fastest FX-9370 and FX-9590 – already managed to surprise us with its technical characteristics and price, which was based on the background of rumors. Previously, there was talk that AMD will not sell these processors individual crystals. Maybe so, but some online retailers have started selling these chips.
For example, the well-known western Online Store TigerDirect started selling FX-9370 processor with a frequency of 4.7 GHz. While this particular crystal is in a status of “in stock” and offered to purchase for 353 dollars.
In the sale also came prefabricated solutions based on the new processors. Again, a fairly well-known western collector iBUYPOWER offers an order to a system based on the AMD FX-9590 with a frequency of 5 GHz. A system like a real computer game, offered a rather steep 16 GB of RAM standard DDR3, HDD 1TB, SSD-drive capacity of 120 GB and a graphics card AMD Radeon HD 7970 3 GB of memory – all you need for gaming happiness . Of course, by tradition it is only basic equipment. The final performance of the system will depend only on the volume of consumer wallet.
The exact specifications of new stones we already told you at the end of last June, but for those too lazy to yourself to remember, recall that the FX-9370 operates at a base frequency of 4.4 GHz and can automatically overclock to 4.7 GHz. In turn, the model FX-9590 runs at 4.7 GHz and runoff accelerates up to 5 GHz. Both processors have 16 MB cache, offer unlocked multipliers and are heat (TDP) of 220 watts.
Heat generation is perhaps the most crucial (and only) issue of new crystals, as imposes a number of restrictions. With regard to the minimum requirements, the availability of the motherboard chipset 990FX/SB950, the power supply capacity of 1200 watts and memory standard, DDR3-1600 and DDR3-1866 (9-10-9), is unlikely to scare unsophisticated enthusiasts with bottomless pockets.
Ah yes, the use of additional case fans and CBO as a cooling system for the processor in this case is also highly recommended.
