AMD Teases new FX CPU

Recently AMD has been Quiet on the CPU front with only a bunch of low end components being added to their lineup. Just now Roy Taylor has shown us what could be a CPU to fight a Mid to High-end battle with Intel, lets hope this isn't another overclocked FX-8350.

It looks like there's an AIO Liquid Cooler boxed with the mystery CPU too. Is it a new FX-9000 series chip, or is it something else I wonder?

Hmm, interesting. As far as any roadmaps go there shouldn't be a 8-core steamroller coming, so i doubt this is one .

I hope it isn't another FX-9000 chip, those things were just ludicrous. Perhaps it is a FM2+ steamroller without a GPU? designed for overclocking perhaps?

Oh god please a new high-end AMD CPU. I'm done with Intel and nVidia.

I can't remember where I read it but I'm pretty sure this is an "FX" style APU.

I honestly doubt it's another FX-9000 series CPU. I just don't see them getting the clocks higher than 5GHz on the FX-9590; there wouldn't be much point in releasing something similar. As a result I'm inclined to think it's something new.

Is it the much vaunted Steamroller FX? Or are there new motherboards coming or something?

Nonetheless, as an AMD guy it's nice to have something to be excited about again.

Considering that they've been using the FX name for FM2+ athlons in prebuilds for sometime now I'd not get excited. If it has its own liquid cooler though chances are its another FX 9xxx does 5.5ghz.

Actually, scratch that. It'll just be a branded cpu cooler. As you can tell I have my doubts .

This is from Kitguru. Currently their are a few Kaveri mobile APUs that use the FX naming.
