The new 5Ghz FX-9590 and 4.7Ghz FX-9370 feature the “Piledriver” architecture, comes unlocked out-of-the-box to enable easy overclocking, something enthusiasts and hardcore gamers love to do to enhance performance. These processors also feature AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology to dynamically optimise performance across CPU cores, and enable maximum computing for the most intensive workloads.
