Pros:

AMD fans will think it's the cats pajamas. It's got a 5.0Ghz turbo clock.

Cons:

220watt TDP. Still built with the lacking Piledriver architecture. Given the high stock clock speed, it's performance SHOULD be better than it is, but Piledriver/Vishera architecture is still holding it down, it's just an inefficient way to build a processor.

Other Thoughts:

Ok, in the benchmark testing done, with all CPUs running at stock clocks, and turbo engaged if available, this CPU doesn't do that bad against the i5 and i7 INTELS in some benchmarks, it's about even with the i7's in 115x sockets in SOME benches, as we already know with AMD it's single threaded performance isn't even up to i3 performance. BUT, it is priced higher than all but the i7extreme procs, and it's still a 220w TDP. And the less expensive i7's and i5's in the 115x sockets STILL beat it in MOST benchmarks (and are way cheaper and lower temp also). It's neat to see a 5ghz stock proc. but since you can get an intel i5/i7 OR AMD FX-8350 to that same speed through OC, for half the price or better, it's like looking back at Netwar days again. And once you OC them, the true lack of performance from the 9590 shows through.
