Report: AMD Readying FX-8770 and FX-9000 CPUs

Sweclockers has reported that AMD is readying two new “Vishera” processors, the FX-8770 and FX-9000 which, like their predecessors, feature an AM3+ socket, 32 nm lithography and are based on the Piledriver x86 architecture.

What sets these two CPUs apart is the astounding TDP of 220 W and the FX-9000’s clock rate of 4.8 GHz / 5.0 GHz (base / turbo). This will necessitate some “interesting” cooling solutions and seems set to grant the FX-9000 the distinction of being the highest clocked stock processor.

    FX 9000 breaks their naming scheme, the first number is the number of cores, so FX-9000 would have 9 cores/4.5 modules? Sounds like BS to me.


    those 8 cores were overvolted so hard they had an orgy and squeezed out a baby :ouch:

    there, I explained it ;)

    Just so you can have something to keep you warm on those cold winter nights :-)

    That reminds me of all those P4 space-heating jokes from ~10 years ago... except AMD beats Intel by 95W on this round.

    Ha. I want one. But in the next "Driver". :D
