enthusiasts. You can immerse yourself in the most advanced 3D games, and
achieve extreme mega-tasking with ease.
Based on the 32nm "Piledriver" architecture, the AMD FX-9590 is fully
unlocked for easy overclocking, and paves the way for enthusiasts to enjoy
higher CPU speeds and related performance gains*. AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology
dynamically optimizes performance across CPU cores, and enables maximum
computing for the most intensive workloads.
Dive into pure core performance, and feel and enjoy unmatched multitasking
and extreme responsiveness.
This CPU is only compatible with the selected 990FX motherboards.
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z, GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD7 and ASRock 990FX Extreme9.
Please check motherboard manufacturers for CPU compatibility.
*AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking (even
when overclocking is enabled via AMD OverDrive software).
* AMD TURBO CORE TECHNOLOGYThe AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo
CORE Technology. AMD Turbo CORE Technology is a performance boosting technology
that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
* NEW INSTRUCTION CAPABILITIESAVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) increase
parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating
point calculations. FMA4 and XOP - Floating Point Vector Multiply - Accumulate
improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and
floating point). AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) noticeably increases
performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks
* AMD BALANCED SMART CACHEShared L3 cache (up to 8MB), improved scheduling
and pre-fetch capabilities, 64-ways (16-ways/sub-cache), increased data queue
sizes, and coherency for eight-cores.
* HYPERTRANSPORT TECHNOLOGYOne 16-bit link at up to 5600MTps, up to 8.0GBps
HyperTransport I/O bandwidth, up to 16GBps in HyperTransport Generation 3.0
mode, and up to 37GBps total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth
(HyperTransport bus + memory bus). Benefit: Quick access times to system I/O
for better performance.
* INTEGRATED DRAM CONTROLLER WITH AMD MEMORY OPTIMIZER TECHNOLOGYA
high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller, supports up to
DDR3-1866, supports new low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V, up to 29.9GBps
memory bandwidth for DDR3, new pre-fetcher improvements, and direct
communications to each core in the dual-core module (APIC registers in each
core). Benefit: Optimized memory controller to feed more cores.
* AMD VIRTUALIZATION (AMD-V) TECHNOLOGY WITH IOMMUSilicon feature-set
enhancements are designed to improve the performance, reliability, and security
of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized
applications with direct and rapid access to their allocated memory. IOMMU is
an extension to AMD64 architecture to support address translation and access
protection on DMA transfers. An array of security options delivers the maximum
protection for user-level applications and virtual machine guest operating
systems, including address translation and access control, device isolation,
device assignment in virtualized systems, security and trusted boot support,
and unified interrupt management.
