AMD FX-9590 gets a massive price cut

Written by Slobodan Simic

 amd FXSeries

Only in the UK for now


AMD's flagship Piledriver-based FX-9590 CPU just got a big price cut in the UK and is currently priced at £300. While it is not clear if the price-cut that took it down from £700 is worldwide and came directly from AMD or just limited to a single retailer in the UK, it is still a quite interesting.

The UK based Aria PC retailer is currently selling AMD's flagship 5.0GHz FX-9590 for as low as £300. As noted, it is not clear if the price came as a directive from AMD, which previously stated that it will not push the FX-9590 into retail/e-tail at all, or is it just a way for Aria PC to get rid of stock. Judging by the extent of the price-cut our bet goes on AMD.

In case you missed it earlier, the AMD FX-9590 is AMD's flagship FX-series CPU based on Piledriver architecture, features eight cores, 16MB of cache, has support for DDR3-2133 memory and runs at 4.7GHz base and 5.0GHz Turbo clock. In case you missed earlier reports, the FX-9590 should be paired up with a high-end 990FX motherboards with specific BIOS update and massive VRM due to its high 220W TDP.

According to earlier reviews and benchmarks, the AMD's FX-9590 packs quite a punch and even gets close to Intel's Core i7-4770K in some scenarios.

The price-cut on the FX-9590 follows the recent price-cut of the dual-GPU HD 7990 graphics cards and we certainly hope that it is a worldwide one and that we will see it in all other retail/e-tail shops around the Europe. Currently, the rest of the Europe lists the FX-9590 at around €735 which is quite lower than the €794,25 price it had last month.
