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.

    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.
