    Prices are really high but so are the speeds. FX-9590 works at 4.7GHz with 5GHz max turbo, while FX-9370 works at 4.4GHz with max turbo speed of 4.7GHz. Both CPUs are using eight Piledriver cores. Still can't get over that pricing. It's ridiculous.

    Unless you run a physics lab, I'm not sure what the hell anyone needs an octa-core for. How much faster can I get my GW2 alts to level 80 on that FX-9590 than my current i5 quad?
