AMD FX-9000 CPUs Available For Individual Pre-Order

Edit: PCSuperStore appears to have removed the listings as it probably had a slap on the wrists from AMD.

While we confirmed a few days ago that AMD’s FX processors would be only available to System Integrators we also believed that some retailers would go against AMD’s recommendations and sell them as individual OEM parts. CPU World has revealed that this has happened already with one retailer PCSuperstore currently listing both the FX-9590 and the FX-9370. At the time of writing this that retailer was selling AMD’s FX-9590 for a hefty $920.31 and it was selling the FX-9370 for £576.27. These boxed processors have the model numbers FD9590FHHKWOF and FD9370FHHKWOF respectively. The WOF is believed to denote WithOutFan.

Strangely if you set these prices within the context of the rest of the CPU market the FX-9370 competes a tiny bit lower than the Core i7 3930K and the FX-9590 competes a little bit lower than the Core i7 3960X. Yet we all know by now that AMD’s processors don’t really come close on performance, especially when you consider these new FX processors are already clocked so high their is little room for further overclocking, that is while the Core i7 3930K and 3960X both have the capacity to rise from their mid 3GHz clock speeds to upper 4GHz clock speeds.

With quite mediocre “bang for buck” levels and high power consumption it remains to be seen if AMD’s FX-9000 series CPUs will be a hit or not.

    Price and power make these something to miss I think but who knows what will happen in the future.
