AMD FX-9590 is in our test labs – What to do with it?

If our sources are accurate, the enigmatic FX-9590 (four Piledriver modules at 4.7GHz with a 5GHz turbo) will be the final legacy of the performance FX “big cores” from AMD. What tests or benchmarks would you like us to run in our upcoming review?


Resources available:

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z

2 x AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB

4 x 8GB of Kingston HyperX Beast 2133MHz CL11

Samsung 840 Pro SSD 512GB

Air Cooling (Thermalright Silver Arrow with two 140mm fans)

Power Meter (W) to measure total platform power usage from the wall

Android phone stopwatch

Windows 8 Professional (don’t mind booting other O/S if theres a Live CD)


The Competition:

i7-4770K (4C/8T)

i7-3970X (6C/12T)

Test/benchmark suggestions should preferably be repeatable (almost the same result everytime), easy to obtain/set up and be able to reflect real-world usage models. Let us know in the comments section below!
