  • 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 CPU

Pros: Excellent performance from this CPU.

Cons: Not really any major cons, other than that the included cooler is pretty rubbish. Not worth knocking an egg off though.

Other Thoughts: I haven't overclocked this, as I don't really have any knowledge with overclocking, and I feel that my psu isn't gonna give enough power for it. But even at the stock clock, it is doing great. I haven't had any issues with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This CPU is definitely powerful. The cores and cache are strong enough to handle single-threaded applications impressively, so it isn't a big deal when you can't utilize all the rest of its cores.

Cons: I read enough warnings in reviews to use a different CPU cooler than what came stock, as this CPU can get hot under heavy load. I got a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus to use instead, and haven't seen any trouble while running intensive games.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing price to performance

Pros: I have had this CPU for over a year and it has been an amazing upgrade! For the price, you can't really beat it, and it performs amazing with any game or application I throw at it! I would recommend if you are looking to game on a budget, and want great performance!

Cons: I haven't had any issues at all.

Other Thoughts: What are you waiting for, buy it!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Product, Bad Fan

Pros: Really fast, booted right away, overclockable but not needed really

Cons: The fan that it comes with is terrible, it idles at 44c and goes up to 51 while creating a video in Adobe Premier. The way they packed it was bad also, I was a little worried that it would be damaged, it was just sliding around in a large box with the bubble wrap sitting above it so it wasn't really protecting anything.

Other Thoughts: you guys should really get on to your packaging team about that, I can provide you with a video if a newegg rep wants to see it, I always record my unboxxings so there is no doubt who's at fault.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor

Pros: This thing is a tank and I mean fast. It comes unlocked but there is no need to overclock with 8 cores at 4GHz this thing is fast. Runs cool in my setup with the factory heat sink at between 48 and 65 degrees

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsNice CPU, get a better cooler.

Pros: More than enough cores to run multiple apps and not bog down. No "virtual" cores via hyperthreading so no worry about slow downs due to two threads competing for the same resources. Decently fast, slightly slower per core than a Phenom II x4 965 running @4.07 Ghz when all threads are at 100%. But unless you are going to be maxing all the cores at the same time this cpu will outpace the 965. In WoW with the 965 I was getting around 40 fps average with the settings at good with the 8350 I am getting about the same frame rate with the settings at high and a few at ultra outdoors. Indoors I was getting around 65 fps with the 965 and I am now getting around 105 fps with the higher settings. Running 16GB 1600Mhz ram, 890fx chipset, ssd, and a pair of 6850's @ 850 Mhz core. The stock cooler idles around 14c to 19c depending on the room temp. My GPU is idling around 35c with one card shut down.

Cons: The cooler is WAY undersized for the heat this thing can pump out and extremely loud when the fan spins up. I ran the Phenom II overclocked on the stock cooler and did not have any issues of overheating, this cpu overheats just being ran at 100% and factory clockings.

I have pretty good airflow through the case and while I am going to pick up a couple more 120MM fans by no means should it be locking up or shutting down. The factory cooler just will not cut it on this one unless you get a water cooled edition. Auto clockings and voltage this thing is going up to around the mid to upper 70's c, my gpu's are getting to around 62c max.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OC WITH A STOCK COOLER/PASTE, in fact if you buy this cpu buy a better cooler to begin with even if you are not going to OC. I have a feeling part of the problem with the stock cooler is that the air being vented from the cooler is being pulled back into the fan and recirculating. I would rather have seen a cooler boxed with the cpu more like the 212 EVO where the air can be pushed through straight to an exhaust fan.

Other Thoughts: I just bought a 212 evo to throw on this after seeing comparisons showing the temps I am getting on stock at 70c to 80c and the evo on the same loading is getting 45c to 50c.

It is a little arbitrary to talk about the per core performance being slightly slower at the same clock speed but I will try to elaborate a little. I ran a x11 miner on the Phenom II @4.07 Ghz and received ~ 250 khash/s or 62.5 khash/s per core, the 8350 at 4.1ghz in turbo mode runs ~ 400 khash/s or 50 khash/s per core at a slightly higher clock speed. Both done with one thread per core so the hexacore cpu vs the quad core at nearly the same clock speed is slightly slower. With that said running less than 8 threads on the hexacore does yield nearly the same performance so this may be due to the overhead of managing twice the threads and if you are going to overclock you can get the performance higher.

I have not done a lot of other testing but I think what I have outlined should give you an idea of performance comparison. When the 212EVO comes in on Thursday I will be doing some more and see if everything holds true.

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU I've Ever owned

Pros: Overclocks automatically
high clock speed
8 cores

Cons: Heat (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: 212 evo keeps the temps under 45C even when overclocked to 5 Ghz.

2 out of 5 eggsGood cpu but bad service

Pros: Love my new cpu and the fastness!

Cons: None on the card itself

Other Thoughts: I have not yet recieved my amd gold gift 3 games and its been almost one month now... I did not receive free CIV game and I had to tell newegg about it and then I had to tell them about the amd gold gift 3 games; which I have yet to receive... and started to feel like I won't ever receive my free 3 games in a million years...

Update* I finally got the 3 games that I wanted after hours and hours of talking to newegg and multiple people. Time is money and wasted a lot of time to finally get what I want. However, I finally got it. Thank you Newegg and I hope our business will be better the next go around.
