FX-9000 processors listed at U.S. e-tailer


— 5:11 PM on June 17, 2013

So, remember how those AMD FX-9000-series processors were supposed to be exclusive to pre-built PCs? Yeah, turns out that might not be entirely true. E-tail listings for the chips have quietly popped up at PCSuperStore.com, a small U.S. online retailer based out of Erie, Pennsylvania.

PCSuperStore.com has the FX-9370 listed for $576.27 and the "5GHz" FX-9590 at a pricey $920.31. Both chips are said to be unlocked, and the part numbers are FD9370FHHKWOF and FD9590FHHKWOF, respectively. Retail-boxed AMD processors usually have "BOX" somewhere in the model code, so I assume these are tray units without heatsinks, manuals, or cool stickers included.

Oh, and neither model is in stock right now—but that's no surprise. AMD said the FX-9370 and FX-9590 would become available from system integrators "starting this summer." We're about three days from the start of summer and three months from the end of it, so in all likelihood, there's still some waiting to be done.

We've asked AMD to further comment on the FX-9000 series' availability and are awaiting a reply. (Thanks to X-bit labs for the link.)
