It has an L3 cache size of 8MB, an L2 cache size of 8192KB, and an L1 cache size of 384MB.


AMD FX-9590

Cores8More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed4.7GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameVisheraThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date11 Jun 2013 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP220WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache384KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache8192KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache8MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography32nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM3+The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it

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.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 32 nanometers, the FX-9590 is quite efficiently built, although with a Thermal Design Power of 220W it requires a huge amount of power to run, and will inevitably create a lot of excess heat.
