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]
