Origin PC Also Adds AMD FX-9590 to CPU Choice Lineup

So far we've seen two manufacturers implement the new $900 AMD FX-9590 5.0 GHz 8-core CPU in their systems, and now Origin PC has also added the CPU to its list of options. 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 is only available to OEMs.

The FX-9590 CPU is available in the Origin Genesis PCs, which have a starting price of $1,551. When configured with the FX-9590 though, its default starting price is $2,321. If the CPU is overclocked to feature a base clock speed (not to be mistaken with the stock Turbo clock speed) of 5.0 GHz, it will cost $2,371.

If ordered now, the system can be expected to leave the factory in the beginning of August.
