AMD Reveals First 5.0 GHz CPU for Sale


Normally when we think of 5.0 GHz we think of a premium air cooling or water cooling configuration. Now, AMD is going to sell the worlds first stock 5.0 GHz CPU. That’s right, right out the box, this AMD FX CPU (the FX-9590) will be able to turbo clock itself to 5.0 GHz without any overclocking.

Unfortunately, there is no specified price point on the eight-core FX-9590, but it is going to be competitive with the like of Intel’s Haswell CPUs.
