New microarchitecture, new level of performance

Piledriver microarchitecture, a tuned-up Bulldozer, has finally reached the flagship AMD FX processors (the new FX series processors are codenamed as Vishera) for improved performance and better energy-efficiency. Up to eight “Piledriver” cores ensure unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance. The AMD Turbo Core technology pushes your core frequencies to the most when you need it most. To top it off, like all other AMD’s Black Edition processors, the new AMD FX 8-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability.  Unrivaled performance is not the only trick AMD has up their sleeve. Vishera processors are at a reasonable price point. (*AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.)

  • newegg New Piledriver microarchitecture Piledriver microarchitecture is the second generation of AMD Bulldozer microarchitecture. The internal core structure has been modified for higher frequencies even without any changes in the manufacturing process. Piledriver has a more precise branch predictor and a larger instruction window with ISA extensions FMA3 and F16C. The execution units acquired an enhanced scheduler and learned to process individual instructions faster, such as integer and floating-point division. And Piledriver microarchitecture delivers higher power efficiency compared with Bulldozer microarchitecture.
  • newegg Unlocked AMD FX processor with 8 Piledriver cores The native 8-core desktop processor delivers unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance with the new Piledriver microarchitecture. 32 nanometer die shrink was designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. The AMD unlocked technology offers more headroom for your overclocking (AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.).
  • newegg AMD Turbo technology The AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology, a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
  • newegg Amazing instruction capabilities Like Bulldozer, Piledriver has some amazing instruction capabilities. Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations. Floating Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). Advanced Encryption Standard noticeably increases performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
  • newegg AMD Hypertransport technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link which helps reduce the number of buses in a system thus reducing system bottlenecks and enabling today's faster microprocessors to use system memory more efficiently in high-end multiprocessor systems.
  • newegg Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology AMD FX Vishera Processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that supports faster and low voltage memories and provides new Pre-Fetcher improvements and direct communications to each core in Dual-Core module (APIC registers in each core).

5 out of 5 eggsgreat processor but...

Pros: this processor is great!! I run it on an Asus sabertooth rev 2.0 board with a corsair h60 water cooler. (please get a water cooler it will save you from blue screens and frustration!!) and I have it clocked at 4.72 ghz stable!! can push it higher but I don't need to.

Cons: runs hot. throw the stock heatsink in an old computer and buy a corsair h60 or comparable cooler. stay away from air cooling if you can!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great CPU. Runs cooler than expected. Very efficient. great with my ASRock 990FX Killer. Stock CPU heat sink runs quiet and makes very little noise.

Cons: Stock heat sink was difficult to clamp on to motherboard, but that could have been the motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Performance!!!

Pros: I have had my AMD FX 8350 since a week before Christmas and I'm blown away by how much value and performance I've gotten from a ~$200 processor.

Great speeds and support for multiple monitors(2 for me) no screen lag for me either.

8 cores!!! Don't believe anyone that says 4 hyper-threaded to 8!

Probably best price to performance chip available.

Plays games very well with my gtx 770 4gb(ultra and high AA except for a few titles)

Easy to over lock but definately not needed.

Cons: As always the stock fan sounds like a leaf lower and doesn't cool well due to its thermal compound. Buy an after market(hyper 212 or noctua nhd14 are great options!!)

Other Thoughts: Me and my friend are very avid gamers and we like to stream and do some video editing as well and this beast nails it!! Gaming is probably close to a 3570k but the extra cores provide so much power for streaming and rendering!

I was stuck on either buying the 4670k or 8350 but my heart chose the amd because I could not stop watching it blow away other chips at multitasking- definatly not an i7 but still great.

My specs-
Asus sabertooth 990fx
Fx 8350 oc 4.8
H110 with 2 noctua nfa14 fans
Define r4
Seasonic 860w gold psu
32gb 1866 Kingston beast
Gtx 770 4gb
256gb samsung ssd
2x2tb wd green drives.

5 out of 5 eggssmokin

Pros: replaced my fx-4300 with this badboy and WOAH what a difference. it wasn't that i disliked my 4300 - i just needed mo powah. i work from home and wanted to give my vm's more juice and this puppy certainly did the trick! running windoze vm's in order to work on and test my company's .net apps is a breeze and if i didn't know any better i would think the vm's were the native os since they run w/o any glitches or lag.

at my prior job my desktop had an i7 in it. while the i7 was still ridic and a little superior (particularly in single threaded tasks), the cost of one doesn't seem justified. i love this proc and will continue to support amd so long as they continue to roll out hardware of this quality.

Cons: nada whey

Other Thoughts: i've seen complaints about running hot, stock fan too loud, yadayadayada blahblahblah. i have a cooler master haf case which keeps things cool most of the time. crunching a compile or deploying an app typically elevates proc temp to 49 C for a minute or two. stress-ing all 8 cores from a command line i have seen 62 C. however, day-to-day tasks typically keep my proc somewhere between 27-33 C (writing code, checking email, browsing, linux tinkering, sleeping my office chair, that kinda stuff). i'm sure if i played wow (heh...NEVER - i fart in those people's general direction) or oc-ed i'd probably invest in a water cooler. but, i'm a family man and much rather spend free time with them since my job keeps me at my keyboard around 60 hours a week.

as far as noise? i wear headphones when i'm at my desk - problem solved. plus my case has two 200mm fans and a 120. so, no that silly proc cooler doesn't come close to the amount of noise the chorus of fans do in my case - even when the proc fan hits 3000+ rpm doing a stress test. noisy computers don't bug me though as i used to sleep next to my 3com super stack II switch in college. fan hum puts me to sleep... zzzzzz.... DANG i better put my heaphones back on and get back to work!

bottom line - this proc r0xx0r my s0xx0rs

5 out of 5 eggsTook the plunge!

Pros: Fast, cool and economical. A LOT less than Intel and much, much better bang for my buck.

Cons: Didn't install itself!

Other Thoughts: I waited and waited, just do it!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: AMD Vishera 4.0 GHz, a great speed for a great price!
Works very well with the Asus Sabertooth Motherboard.

Cons: The factory heatsink/fan are not that great. Do not let that stop you from buying this awesome CPU!

Other Thoughts: I wish you could get the CPU without the heatsink/fan and save a little bit a money to put towards a better heatsink/fan. Again, don't let that stop you from buy this awesome CPU!
