New flagship processor on the way

AMD unleashes FX-9590 for system builders

A new flagship PC processor is on the way from AMD – though it’s currently aimed at system builders rather than the market generally.

The freshly announced AMD FX-9590 offers eight unlocked cores with an incredible boost clock of 5GHz. Also on the way is a slightly toned down version called the FX-9370 that offers a boost clock of 4.7GHz.

Base clocks for the pair come in at 4.7GHz and 4.4GHz respectively.

However, it will need some serious cooling and the first system builds boasting the chips are expected to arrive some time “this summer”.
