TechRadar - AMD on its 5GHz processor: 'You don't buy a Ferrari for the MPG'

The eight-core FX-9590 will debut in desktop PCs this summer and a standalone version is always a possibility. But the behemoth has some drawbacks; it probably won't come cheap, for one thing, and at 220 Watts it draws a significant amount of power.

But "you don't buy a ferrari because of the MPG," Diana said. "It's made to do one thing, and that's go really, really fast." (E3, PC, Tech)

You can increase the GHZ all you want but your per core performance is still about half what intel's is.

My i4 4670k cooled by an h100 (thermalpaste is prolimatech pk2) is oced to 4.2ghz on 1.1 volts and it only runs at 55C with prime 95 running for 1 hour. I do have an excellent motherboard (Msi mpower max) and I got one of the few chips that can do 5ghz at about 1.25 volts :D

I have an 2500k, love it. @ 4.4ghz is plenty.

I could increase volts, and go higher, but there's really no need. Once you hit the brickwall GPU wise it does not matter.

If we are talking games.

What i found funny last night.

I hadn't ripped a dvd or such for years,lol. and i thought i'd have a go with my comp for fun.

So rip and encode to avi took 18mins. That's crazy when i think of how long it used to take.
