Not that long ago AMD announced their FX-9370 and FX-9590 processors. The big thing with these processors was that the FX-9590 featured a turbo boost of 5 GHz. It was the first processor ever to have a stock turbo boost speed that high. Being that both of these chips have high clock speeds their TDP’s were quite high as well. Many people who purchased these chips installed them with a good closed-loop watercooler or installed a full water cooling system.
Last week AMD announced their FX-9000 series processors, which included the FX-9590 and FX-9370. These processors made headlines and the FX-9590 was the first ever consumer processor to offer a 5 GHz speed. A couple of days later it was revealed that AMD would only be selling these chips to system integrators, but not that may not be the case as they have popped up for pre-order online.
Back in April we touched upon some news that AMD would be releasing a 5 GHz FX Centurion Super Processor. It looks like that might actually come to light as Sweclockers has some information about two new AMD FX models that may be coming out soon. These models include the AMD FX-9000 and AMD FX-8770.
