FX-9590 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD FX-9590 has exceptional performance. Its 8 cores clocked at 4.7 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is over 1 year old, meaning while it is probably beginning to look old compared to newer processors, manufacturer support should still be readily available.
