  • 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 eggsAmazing Power - 8 Core Beast

Pros: Very Fast and Powerful
Has 8 Cores
Runs idle at under 30 C.
Runs Full Load doesn't go over 80 C
This destroys a lot of I7s - makes an I7 look like a Pentium 4.
Perfect

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Couldn't be happier. Unless totally new technologies are developed for making processors, this one won't be obsolete for a decade. That being said, check out IBM's TrueNorth.

Cons: Not really much of a con, see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Because this processor is fast, it requires a lot of energy and generates a lot of heat. While playing Battlefield 4, it got as hot as 67 degrees celcius. The fan, spinning at 100% speed, sounds like a jet engine and can't keep the CPU cool. I have 6 case fans and that wasn't enough to keep temps down.

Do yourself a favor and get an aftermarket cooler. Doesn't have to be expensive, just better than stock.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU, bad thermal system

Pros: Fast
Stable
Excellent price-to-power

Cons: Terrible heatsink/fan combo. I'm used to this, but the fan is much louder than stock fans I have experienced before, and the combo is definitely underrated for the CPU. 97F idle, 105F if there's anything active open, 126F+ within a minute of loading a game and sitting idle in it. This means that with even normal use the thing sounds like a jet.

Other Thoughts: Buy an aftermarket heatsink/fan combo when you get this one. For $35, I ordered a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. If you like this one, please check to make sure it will fit in your case. It's big, cheap, popular and deserving of praise.

1 out of 5 eggsRuined my motherboard

Pros: It's a snappy processor when it gets going and at a great price.

Cons: This thing got so hot with the stock fan that it turned the thermal paste into a plaster. One day it just didn't turn on. I checked every cord possible and thought at first my PSU had failed. I checked it and low and behold it works. Whelp. At this point I do what every tech does we have a problem with many outcomes as to why its messed up. Rebuild it. As I came to the CPU I removed the heat sink to find the CPU missing... and stuck to the bottom of the copper plate of the heat sink. Stripped my motherboard and ruined my CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Easy over clocking, I have this processor clocked at 4.8ghz on water cooling, it runs at 92 degrees idling, full gaming load its at 142 degrees.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsDon't listen to the drones

Pros: I have owned this for 2 years and it simply dominates anything I throw at it. I have it overclocked to 4.7 with an evo 212 with no problems. Windows honestly feels faster with this than my work xeon processor.

Cons: Single thread isn't as fast, but that is old tech, the future is multi thread.

Other Thoughts: Very future proof, I game a lot and every year games are more multi thread and this is just as fast as intel with modern games.

5 out of 5 eggs4.0 GHz? 8 Corse? $180.00??? Yeah, I'll take it...

Pros: This chip is a beast! I haven't overclocked it, I haven't needed to... While I could more than likely get much more out of it, it runs Sniper Elite 3 with flawless rendering... No skips, no jumps... Just a clean run... Moreover, multitasking is insanely responsive. Do yourself a favor and get this over any Intel you're going to buy...

Cons: Absolutely NONE... Amazing chip...

Other Thoughts: I've been using AMD chips since they came out with the Athlon 900... I own my own company, and am constantly consulted for new system builds. Unless Intel is specifically requested, I generally don't build with them... I like to think about them as the Mac of the PC world... Overpriced for not that much more bang for the buck...

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING PROCESSOR!

Pros: Affordable, (half the price of an intel) Fast! UNLOCKED! OVERCLOCK-ABLE! 8 cores! This thing is a BEAST! Playing a game next to a friend using an intel cpu, at double the cost, same video cards, you see no difference. I've been using AMD since 1999

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic processor! AMD makes great products! I use AMD video cards, and processors.
