AMD unveils 5GHz and 4.7Ghz 8-Core Processor at E3 2013 in Apple’s Mac Pro Dogfight for Top Gun in High End Multi-Core PC Gaming

“At E3 this week, AMD demonstrated why it is at the core of gaming. The new FX 5GHz processor is an emphatic performance statement to the most demanding gamers seeking ultra-high resolution experiences including AMD Eyefinity technology. This is another proud innovation for AMD in delivering the world’s first commercially available 5GHz processor.”

Corporate Vice President and General Manager of the client products division at AMD Bernd Lienhard at E3 22013 on Yesterday, Wednesday June 12th 2013.


Yesterday, Wednesday June 12th 2013 at the E3 (Electronics Entertainment Expo) 2013, AMD’s (Advanced Micro Devices) unveiled two (2) new processors in the FX-9000 family of processors that’s sure to make the PC Gaming World still clutching their soon-to-be-extinct PC super happy for the Summer:

  1. The FX-9590, a 5Ghz 8-Core Processor

  2. The FX-9370, a 4.7Ghz 8-Core Processor

Looks like the PC World just turned it up a notch against the Tablet World despite the prematurely announced death of PC’s as per my opinion piece How the Apple iPad killed Ultrabooks, Printing and the Mouse as the World Rediscovers Tablets.

Folks if you were impressed by the Nvidia Tegra 4 Quad-Core Processor codenamed “Kalel” for Tablets that made its debut back in the Fourth Quarter of 2013 as faithfully chronicles in Nvidia and the Quad-Core Kal-El CPU – Android leaves A5 Dual-Core Processor in the DustNvidia and the Quad-Core Kal-El CPU – Android leaves A5 Dual-Core Processor in the Dust then you’ll love this latest bit of processor news from an unlikely source for an unlikely product!

A bit of history for AMD, which has beaten beat Intel yet again. Just as they’d done back in 2000 with the first 1GHz processor, now marking this milestone first by beating Intel to market yet again with a 5Ghz Processor. Indeed this is news is “Awesome Sauce” for PC Gaming and Over-clocking enthusiasts looking for customization for their boxes.

Something which the dual and somewhat over-hyped announcements of the Sony Playstation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One lack or doesn’t make clear as per Kelroy’s article Sony Unveils Playstation 4 System at E3 2013 and Xbox One ignites a new era of games and entertainment this November

The FX9000 Processors are unlocked to allow over-clocking via the use of Liquid Cooling methods, a fact sure to make extreme gaming PC Enthusiasts super happy. The Processors use the so-called PileDriver Technology to allow for these phenomenal speeds bump which even I thought impossible. Good to note here this Processors doesn’t function on all 8-Cores and at 5 GHz all the time; it ramps down when not in use, drawing for it super-speed and multi-core operations only when it detects Processor intensive tasks that require its brute strength.

Clearly this isn’t a shot at Intel but more at Apple, which outed it latest Apple Mac Pro sporting a Intel Xeon twelve (12) Core Processor and impressive drool-worthy specs that’ll make an excellent Gaming Machine and Animation Engine all at in one go. AMD’s clearly putting on a positive Game-ing Face, pun oh-so very much intended despite the negative flack about the PC Industry even with this impressively sexy beast from Apple and is concluding all that’s needed is faster Processors.

With the FX9000 series, AMD’s effectively saying to the PC World “You don’t have to get Apple Turbo charged Mac Pro. Upgrade to our FX9000 series and you can get the same performance that you can customize yourself”. People, cut Negative; The blockbuster of the Summer is ready for the customization Big Screen.

I must say I’m impressed, being someone who’s hardly impressed by specs, as videos of this processor running Video Games are so impressive I’d love to end the article right here and make you take a look for yourself. Then you can run out and order either product this Christmas when they become available in what’s shaping up to be a Dogfight in the Processor World to see who’s Top Gun in High End Multi-Core PC Gaming!
