First Pre-Built Desktop With AMD's $900 FX-9590 Spotted

By - Source: Mouse Computer Japan | B 37 comments

Mouse Computer Japan appears to be the first manufacturer to embed the pricy AMD FX-9590 CPU into one of its systems.

Recently, we started hearing about a 5.0 GHz CPU from AMD, which was supposed to come with a price tag of about $900. The AMD FX-9590 is a 32 nm Vishera silicon, with eight processing cores, a base clock speed of 4.8 GHz and a turbo clock speed of 5.0 GHz. That said, while it might be priced at $900, you cannot actually buy it, as it seems that it's only available to OEMs.

Now though, the CPU has actually shown up in a pre-built computer. Manufacturer Mouse Computer from Japan has crafted the Masterpiece a1500BA1, and it is a very generously equipped PC. The Masterpiece a1500BA1 features the FX-9590 processor, an MSI 9990FXA-GD80 motherboard that hasn't been announced yet, and a re-branded Radeon HD 7990, listed as an HD8990. Memory is taken care of by 16 GB of Kingston HyperX DDR3 memory, and storage by a 3 TB hard drive paired with a 256 GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD. The 220 W TDP of the AMD FX-9590 is dissipated by the Cooler Master Seidon 120XL liquid cooler. Power comes from an unnamed 1200 W 80 Plus Gold PSU.

Mouse Computer's Masterpiece a1500BA1 is listed with a price of ¥449,800, which translates to roughly USD 4,500.

    Excessively overclocked, overpriced, excessive-TDP unavailable CPU. Sounds great.

    Actually I'd love to get my hands on one o those chips, so I could see if there's any headroom. I'd do a crazy mod with it!!!

    stupid and for under 180 dollars you can get an fx 8320, get a liquid cooling kit and do the same thing.

    ...but is it any faster than a Celeron?

    It's sad how nowadays, I am not at all interested about AMD non-APU CPU news.

    Lol to whoever pays the premium for this. I see it at half the price after both people actually blow 4500 on it. I've always favored amd but let's be realistic.

    At $300-$500 this would have been interesting as AMD's version of the monster cpu. But at $900 it is a joke... And it will probably make them a lot of money with OEM's so at least that is good because god knows they need it...

    If HP or Dell offered this CPU, it would be a space heater using the cheap ass heat sink they will use on it.

    The ideal situation would be that these have been binned throughout the 83xx series' production and can use less power.

    The reality is obviously far less palatable. An 8320 or 8350 system with water cooling is far more attractive and available for far less. Watch even the 9590 bottleneck that 8990.

    Tests of such hardware would be very interesting, regardless of my reservations.

    Erm just to remind folks I threw out a AMD S939 FX57 a few days ago. They retailed initially for $1000 back in 2005.

    So allow for inflation...

    So the Masterpiece (!) uses an MSI 990FXA-GD80 that hasn't been announced yet? Really?

    Because here's a link to a review of the same board and it's dated July 18, 2011.

    http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_990fxa_gd80_review,1.html

    What a joke.

    Anyway, it's also funny how this 'Masterpiece' is made with... common off the shelf parts and a CPU that's just overclocked and overpriced.

    $4,500 allows you to buy a couple of Core i7-4770K machines that are loaded to the gills. Take your pick.

    The article says "MSI 9990FXA-GD80" which hasn't been announced. See the extra 9?

    FX9590 is now rebranded by the Toms Armchair experts as a overclocked FX8350 yet nobody knows for sure without reviews, we saw the A10 6800K clock for clock run higher clocks on far less power and heat than the 5800K it replaced. The FX9590 while its running at 4.8-5ghz turbo is not limited to those clocks and some having privy to this chip call it a world record breaker on air or exotic cooling so it must overclock a lot well beyond what the silicon of the 8350 can handle. The unofficial leaks also show it running between the 4770K and 3930K in various performances and that is not surprising knowing that higher frequency will mitigate the IPC penalties a lower clocked unit will suffer.

    For exteme overclockers I think the FX9590 is going to be a legitimate appeal but to the working class this chip like the Phenom TWKR's is not for you.

    If this cpu wil be 180€ it's a nice comeback and smart move of AMD. Single thread is the most important to have that fast feel on a system. That's why the new Ceo decided not to make the 20 core Opteron, but instead more GHZ/core. Cores are very welcome don't get me wrong the more the better (if you need them) but in 2013 the minimum per core should be 5Ghz.

    Why?. And only a 120mm rad no way that thing stays cool.

    Bad move AMD, at $500 you would have given Intel a headache straight away
