I got a 2GB 6950 and a Phenom II x6 over 5 years ago for my first build. That rig would still play 1080p medium in current titles just fine.

That's kinda what I mean when I'm saying FX will stick around. It has high total throughput. I guarantee there will be a post on

in 2021 doing throwback benchmarks. How can I guarantee that? Because I'll do it.

RemindMe! 5 years "show the plebs the true might of the ayymd fx 9590 trolololololl"

I'm honor bound to deliver. I still have the 9590 rig and I can swap in the 3090. Wish it were a 6900XT because of the lower CPU overhead, but hey I'm the one who chose apostasy

Please suggest games or things to test.

I used to run the machine at 4.8GHz flat, and super fast memory because AMD ballers back in the FX days had no choice, so I intend to show the platform as I actually experienced it

note: benchmark delivery estimated mid December because busy af

edit: lol apparently I missed that /

is incapable of doing date math as well as a C+(+) freshman

edit2: gilded means my full send goes from bench king to asshole if I don't deliver

Go for the mandatory Cinebench R20 and R23 multi core and single core runs. Also 3Dmark tests.

Besides what other people mentioned, I'd like to see a benchmark of a heavy game from back then, like Crysis 3 maybe? To see if the new GPU reaches new heights or of it plays just as bad as back in the day.

ID: hjxkaf0

Watch these and get back to us.

The 2nd one is a 9370 w an R9 380X just to show an older GPU with this isn't as bad as you think.

Though cpu benchmarking is typically done at settings nobody in their right mind would use, and I understand the importance of that, I'm honestly curious how well it would game at settings/resolutions people actually game at.

As in, if you had someone play the same game on two otherwise identical systems, how much would an FX actually compromise the experience compared to zen2/zen3/[Intel]lake?

ID: hjwbz3o

Short version, on my FX8350 system the first thing I did in every game made in the last three or four years was set all of the settings as low as they'd go. On my 5800X based system, using the same video card, I can play most everything on high settings.

Long version, I built an FX8350 system within a few months of the CPU being available and used it every day until about six months ago when I finally upgraded to a 5800X based system.

A few years ago the R7 370 that was in it just couldn't keep up with new games anymore so I put an RX590 in the system. That literally doubled frame rates in the games I was playing at the time. I remember in Inquisitor Martyr the fps went from mid-40s to mid-80s on low settings. I turned a few settings up one tick from the lowest!

But throughout most of the systems life, at 1920x1080, most games could be configured to give frame rates high enough to not be bothersome to me until about a year ago.

The 5800X runs circles around the FX processor.

I gave the FX system to a friend who uses it for his primary machine. He mostly plays CS:GO and is very happy with it.

I used the FX8350 longer than any other CPU I've ever owned. My friend will use it for another few years at least. I'm hoping for a similar run from the 5800X!

ID: hjx205y

I only just moved from an FX8370 with a 1060 6GB to my 3800X with the same GPU.

There is only one pancake game that it has made a significant difference with. I was already playing everything on high-ultra on my FX chip with no problems... except for VR games. That is where there is a significant difference.

Also, no more (very occassional) frame dips when playing SpaceHulk Deathwing in stereoscopic 3D.

That's why my FX chip is my player 2 rig. Other than VR, it still plays almost everything maxed out at 60fps 1080p.

FX has garbage L3 so hella fast clocks and low timings on the DDR3 simulate the FX L3 not sucking ass, that was my experience

edit: now FX not recommended for DDR3 below 3GHz CAS 5

FX 9590 has aged better than Phenom II due to instruction set support more than anything, but I would love to see how much it would bottleneck a 3090 in as many titles as possible.

Modern games scale reasonably well with cores, testing against Sandy Bridge should show the FX 9590 gained ground over time, but I kind of doubt it will pull ahead in many titles.

ID: hjwjz2p

I loved my Phenom II 965 BE. I upgraded that in 2014 to a 4690K and had actually considered the 9590. Used that till 2019 and went 3700X and now am on a 5900X. All great chips but I think I’m sticking with this one for a while now. I’ve spent too much money on PC parts this past year.

ID: hjwkg6n

I've earned a profit buying computer parts this year (by selling my Radeon VII and buying a faster 6700XT for less than half the price)... that money will probably go into a VCache CPU next year... but I'll have a 5950X to sell, so it shouldn't be too much overall.

I just bought the fx8350 and overclocked it to 4.9ghz for the 7+ years I had it zero problems the 9590 was not worth it when an fx8350 would do the same clocks with decent cooling.

ID: hjw2vw8

my 9590 was $260 at Microcenter and the guy who pulled it for me was almost visibly cringe

"220W, you better have some good cooling for that"

me, purist AMD gigachad at the time: "I do"

edit: if only they'd cringe at people buying the 12900k now, which uses EVEN MORE POWER lol

ID: hjw3u25

Had the Arctic A3O tower cooler on mine added a am3 fan to the vrm heatsink and is still stable at 4.9ghz in my sons 1080p machine,

Was fine for 1080p gaming with a 290x for a while.

Definitely did the job as I couldn't afford a high end parts at that time and was very capable.

If the fx series hadn't been 18 months late it would've been a lot better situation.

Luckily they took it to heart went away and designed ryzen to get back in the game.

Try RPCS3 emulator since this relies on both CPU and GPU.

I'd also like to see some video editing software, like Premiere Pro or Magix Vegas Pro. Not for rendering times, but in terms of smoothness in playing back in the timeline and applying effects.

ID: hjy6159

rpcs3 is going to demolish this fx cpu, it heavily relies on single core speed and low latency between cores and ram. amd fx is anything but those qualities

10 : Anonymous2021/11/09 07:41 ID: hjwu3ri

Can you bench with a bunch of background tasks open? Like voice, browser, media of some sort (video or good music) plus a game? And maybe capture software? I know they don't bench "nicely" since loads differ, but wild so give s good idea of what a norms usage might look like.

ID: hjwuc7c

...bench with a bunch of background tasks open?

Sure, I can do a few exploratory tests

Still rocking my 8350 while waiting for some ddr5 ryzens. Whats one more year?

12 : Anonymous2021/11/09 04:07 ID: hjw9o4n

Test some esport game at ever increasing settings to see if you can eventually get to GPU bottleneck lmao

13 : Anonymous2021/11/09 11:37 ID: hjxanyy

ARMA 3 hated my FX-8350.

It would just idle and never go much more than 10fps unless you looked straight up or straight down where there is nothing to see. Didn't matter if it was lowest or max settings. I tried everything to get it to be playable even reinstall Windows from scratch. My CPU and GPU would snooze at 10%... I could open up Crysis 3 and ARMA 3 would still be 10fps.

Upgraded to a 1700X and using the same GPU suddenly ARMA 3 does +60fps and hits performance cap.

Had a friend with a FX-6120 who had no issues playing ARMA 3.

Since it's a CPU benchmark, I would kindly ask that all benchmark comparisons be made in 720p or 1080p so that the workload doesn't become dependent on the strength of the GPU.

TechPowerUp has a solid list of modern titles that benchmark well(and consistent) in their reviews so feel free to pick from any of them:
Battlefield V
Borderlands 3
Civilization VI
Counter-Strike: GO
Cyberpunk 2077
Doom Eternal
Far Cry 5
Metro Exodus
Red Dead Redemption 2
Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Thank you for being a man of your word.

I own 5 of those

Which ones?

For shiggles though, I wanna know how high we can turn up the visuals on these games before the GPU is limiting factor

One of the Battlefield game.
It is both CPU intensive and can use a shit ton of cores.

Since it is getting colder, it is the perfect environment to test the superior heating capabilities of the FX CPU.

Well, let's face it, it's not going to fare well in any proper multi-threaded productivity test.

The only thing worth testing is game performance, in particular modern games which tend to thread better.

All modern games still bottleneck on the main render thread, but a lot of them do spread the rest of the work around.

Two that come to mind which should show this reasonably well:

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Cyberpunk 2077

ID: hjwlg8z

It's a 32nm GloFo die from over 10 years ago lol

but yeah, CB2077 specifically might do a lot better than expected using super fast DDR3, BFV another contender

Please just make sure you have an appropriate high end 990FX board with good power phasing and VRMs, with an adequate cooler. Gotta get all the juice to that 9590 and let it shine under the power of the sun.
