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]

In terms of raw single-core performance the flagship AMD FX-8350 is lagging behind intel's processor line-up by over two generations. The PassMark Single Thread scores for the i5-2500K vs the FX-8350 are 1863 to 1520 which shows that in terms of raw per-core processing the FX-8350 is lagging the two year old i5 by 23%. Where the AMD FX makes up is on multi-core performance, with a score of 9156 vs 6745, the AMD leads the Intel 2500K by 36% making it the far more capable multi-threaded server orientated performer. The AMD is also cheaper but significantly more power hungry which counts strongly against it as a sever proposition. The FX-8350 could be a good fit for specific server use cases but for general consumer use, which is single and dual core intensive, Intel's two year old i5-2500K delivers better performance. [May '13 CPUPro]
