Reliability You Deserve
AMD processors power premium products and world-class operations from industry leaders like HP, Microsoft, Samsung Electronics, and Sony
The AMD FX™ processor is built from the company’s 8th generation x86 CPU architecture based on over 40 years of silicon-crafting experience
- AMD FX™ 9590 has the highest nominal (4.7 GHz) and turbo (5.0 GHz) clock rates of any x86-compatible desktop CPU. Intel’s fastest CPU, the i7-4790K, has a 4.0 GHz nominal and 4.4 GHz max turbo clock rate. See ark.intel.com for competing models.DTV-34
- Each of the AMD FX™ 8000 and FX™ 9000 Series CPUs have 8 CPU cores, the highest number of CPU cores you can get on an x86-compatible desktop CPU. Intel’s desktop x86 CPU with the highest number of CPU cores is the i7-5960X, which also has 8 CPU cores. See ark.intel.com for competing models. DTV-35
- AMD FX™ 4000 Series CPUs ($80 to $100) have 12MB of total cache vs the Intel Pentium G and Core i3 4100 Series CPUs ($80 to $126) with 3.5MB total cache; AMD 6000 Series CPUs ($110 to $126) have 14MB of total cache vs the Intel Core i3 4300 Series CPUs ($138 to $160) with 4.5MB total cache; AMD FX™ 8000 and AMD FX™ 9000 Series CPUs ($140 to $230) have 16MB of total cache vs the Intel Core i5 4600 Series CPUs ($180 to $250) with 7MB total cache.

- The AMD FX 8370 Processor has higher clocks than Intel’s Fastest Core i5 Processor. As of November 12, 2015, Intel’s fastest Core i5 processor is the Core i5-6600K with a maximum turbo clock rate of 3.9 GHz, while AMD’s FX 8370 has a maximum turbo clock rate of 4.2 GHz. DTV-62
- The AMD FX 8000 and 9000 Series CPUs have 2x the maximum multithreading capacity of Intel’s Core i5 Series CPUs. The AMD FX 9000 and 8000 Series CPUs have 8 CPU cores and can process 8 concurrent threads, 2x the amount of the Intel Core i5 Series CPUs which have 4 CPU cores and can process 4 concurrent threads.

- The AMD FX 8350 processor ($150) has the highest clocks (4.2/4.0 GHz turbo/nominal) and the most cores (8) for $165 or less, compared to Intel’s processor with the highest clocks and most cores in this price class, the Core i3-6320 processor ($165) which has lower clocks (3.9 GHz) and fewer cores (2). Prices taken from Newegg.com as of 04/15/2016. DTV-71
- The AMD FX 6350 processor ($130) has the highest clocks (4.2/3.9 GHz turbo/nominal) and the most cores (6) for $150 or less, compared to Intel’s processor with the highest clocks and most cores in this price class, the Core i3-6300 processor ($150) which has lower clocks (3.8 GHz) and fewer cores (2). Prices taken from Newegg.com as of 04/15/2016. DTV-72
- Subject to use according to product specifications. The AMD Wraith cooler has a maximum noise level of 39dbA. The AMD D3 cooler, which the Wraith Cooler has replaced on certain CPUs, has a maximum noise level of 51 dbA. In the logarithmic dbA scale, a ten decibel difference is equal to ten times the amount of noise, so the AMD Wraith Cooler generates less than one tenth the noise of its predecessor. WTH-1
- Product only available when bundled with select AMD processors
- AMD’s product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware
