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

By - Source: Origin PC | B 29 comments

Origin PC has also added the $900 AMD FX-9590 5.0 GHz CPU to its CPU choice list.

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.

    you speak without knowing what the CPU can do... What if the FX-9590 can OC to 5,5 GHz or 5,7???? Then what? i am not an AMD fanboy (as u can see i have the 2600k in my system)...

    I would have been all over this as a BASE PRICE for the OriginPC with an FX-9590
    $900CPU + $200Mobo + $100Memory + $100 Liquid Cooling or killer Air Cooling + $50HDD + $100 Video card + $100PSU; then you can throw pm $1000 GTX Titan, SSD, etc. but seriously; not being able to buy a BASIC package to get it into an enthusiast's hands, this might as well not exist (the newegg offers are ridiculous; can't pick your PSU, the water cooling is likely barely up to the task, $2,000 and no case? etc.)

    Lol so basically your paying for a FX 8350 that is OC to 4.8ghz. Turbo at 5.0ghz which will be 4cores at 5.0ghz not 8 correct? So basically this $900 cpu is a 8350 andyou just paid whoever 4700 to overclock it. Where do i sign up.....NOT!

    I still think these are overpriced. If they were priced around $300 or $350, then they would be a really tempting offer.

    dont be fooled it seems like all FX cpu's have a 5.0ghz wall barrier. If anything maybe you can OC it more through Turbo. Been a while since i even messed with this option in the BIOS. I got the FX 6100 when it came out couple years ago and it was ok but still to this day i use and abuse my true 6 core AMD Phenom II x6 1055T, love this cpu. I will say this, i have a benchmark floating around on one of these OC sites with a OC on the FX 6100 at 5.2ghz on Antec closed loop water cooling. They seem to hit a wall at 5.0ghz, took me a while and some tinkering to get that 5.2ghz,even then the performance seemed meh.

    There are already reviews on the 9590 on the line. It basically performs worse than all 2nd Gen+ Quad-Core i7 and the Six-Core i7s. At the Price of ~$900 I would by the Six-Core i7 or save money and go with a i7.

    The processor is already rated at 200-220W. Overclocking won't be that easy.

    This chip isn't going to OEMs only because of the high TDP, but because their aren't enough of them to go to e-tailers w/o them selling out in the first week.

    aka very small supply

    1.6v to get to 5.2GHz. Aaaah... ok. Good luck with that. Idiot fanboys will eat these up and say it's the greatest.

    It's a cherry picked 8350, its not going to justify its price under normal cooling.

    for those with the funds I don't see what the problem is with these chips. The peace of mind from it being guarranteed to be stable is a big plus.

    There's a huge WASTE OF MONEY for gullible worshippers of the almighty "Giga Hurts".

    I've been away from the hardware scene for a year or so...but boy, did AMD's numbering scheme rachet up quickly.

    So, how many people will buy this and take the CPU out and use it in a custom build? Not many. XD

    I don't get it. Why would anyone want this CPU. It cost like twice as much as a 4770k, runs crazy HOT, uses tons of power, can't overclock nearly at all and did I mention it's NINE-HUNDRED dollars. I understand the 8350, super competitive for the price but AMD messed up this one. Any Socket 2011 CPU will beat this and a 4770k can easily match/beat it. (And they cost hundreds less)
