Average Bench: 62% (156th of 961)

Based on 6,110 user benchmarks.  Devices: 178BFBFF00600F20, 178BFBFF00600F12 Model: AMD FX(tm)-9590 Eight-Core Processor

AMD released the FX-9590 back in July 2013 but it's not until recently that these processors have started hitting the shelves and even now prices are still extremely high. This is the first mainstream 5GHz processor but clock speed isn't the key performance indicator it once was. Comparing the 9590 to the 8350 shows that the 9590 has 16% better overall performance which is almost exactly in line with its base clock increase from 4.0 to 4.7 GHz. Despite this performance boost the 9590 still lags Intel's most recent 4770K Haswell processor by 26% and that's despite the AMD's 27% higher base clock. In terms of relative performance the AMD's strong point is Integer processing where it has 8 processing units vs just four (one per core) in the 4770K. Overall, especially at current prices, the 9590 doesn't represent good value for money. [Jan '14 CPUPro]

More cache, 8 cores, cheaper MB, have 20+ applications open still fast.—Sep '14

Comment 

Great multithreaded performance, but at 220W, this chip is a beast. I like this chip, but Intel's chips are considerably more efficient in terms of power consumption.—Oct '14

Comment 

I heard mixed reviews of the 9590, but when prices dropped picked on up and my MB already supported it. It has worked great, rock solid for me in ASrock extreme 9 MB. No problems, but hard to overclock so I keep it stock with Corsair H80 cooler. Mine system tested above average on all tests and my rig is strictly budget, so that's good. I don't think I could get more value for the dollar than what I have in my rig. Great CPU!—Oct '15


Poor

For 150£ today its very good value for an 8 core cpu it still will be much better than many i3 for that money

Terrible

This thing will probably start a fire if you don't use a watercooler with it. 220 watts is WAY too much for a small chip and this is basically an overclocked version of the FX 8350. There's literally no difference. Also it's not 8 cores. 4 CORES, 8 THREADS. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
