The total power consumption is only 5-8% less than its FX 8350 counterpart. Unlike with the 4770k, which can handle a hefty +43% overclock from 3.5 Ghz to 5.0 Ghz , while the AMD FX 9650 will only handle a 20% overclock from 4.5 Ghz to 5.4 Ghz.
lol, are you serious? I'm sure there are a TON of 5ghz 4770k's out there on air. Not.
Also, this doesn't belong in news. Heck, i'm not even sure it belongs in rumors.
(And yes, I think the 4770k is an awesome chip, but 5ghz? Unless someone is doing LN2, I don't freakin' think so)
