  • 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).

1 out of 5 eggsSkip buying from NewEgg due to return policy

Pros: AMD CPU that AMD sent me direct works fine and without issue. First install attempt.

Cons: If you try to install a CPU that's AMD, and doesn't work at first, your then 100% NOT covered under NewEgg Warranty and will need to go AMD direct for the RMA. SO make sure you visually inspect the CPU with a magnifying glass before you attempt to install or New Egg will deny the RMA , you'll waste $10 in shipping and they will tell you to go AMD direct

Other Thoughts: AMD was quicker and better at the RMA than NewEgg. I had to pay for shipping and wasted time with NewEgg. Two day shipping was free with AMD direct, they were quick with confirming the CPU was ok for the RMA and I had a quick return. CPU fired right up no issue

5 out of 5 eggsso far so sweet!

Pros: Bought this CPU combo'd with a motherboard. Install was very easy and my system has been running great thus far. Had an initial hiccup with getting an OS on as 8.1 was giving me issues so I went with 7 and it worked great. Noticed the MB box said Windows 7, confused as to why 8.1 wouldn't work as well.

This was my first official full build and I thought it went great and was priced perfect. I already started my new wish list for build #2.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: Has ran wonderfully smooth. I dont OC or tweak with stuff that much, simple gaming guy with a decent video card. Does everything I want and some.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Proc

Pros: Has done anything I've asked of it, and it's done it fast! This is a very good CPU, especially for someone who runs multiple virtual machines on their desktop. I run several VirtualBox VMs, and this CPU keeps all of them snappy.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of reviews complaining of heat. I already had a Corsair liquid cooler kit, which was used by my previous CPU. With this kit on this CPU, the temp has been staying under 55 C under all loads.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: Great CPU for multitreading applications. Capable of running simulations on LabVIEW while processing a stress analysis on SolidWorks. Over clocks well with a Noctua NH-D14 although I did hit my thermal wall at 4.6Ghz @ 1.404vcore.

For gaming, I really only play BF4 and it this thing can handle 64 player at Ultra preset settings. Averaging 58 FPS with an Asus HD 7970. CPU usage is consistently between 60% - 83%

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Well I previously had an i7 2600K with an Asus P8Z68-V LX. That motherboard died on me and after some trouble with buying used motherboards, I sold my i7 to a friend. Getting AMD over Intel was about 45% in savings.

I'm impressed and very happy with this CPU since it actually finishes rendering over 1,000 nodes for simulation about half an hour faster than my old i7 2600K.

Although it does consume 78Watts more based on Kill-a-Watt, the price for electricity in California is fairly low. By the time the difference in electricity costs reaches equilibrium in AMD vs Intel savings, I will be done with my graduate studies and build a new workstation by then.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Pros: Noticeable improvement over my old Phenom II X4 965. The Witcher 3 60 fps on ultra!

Cons: Stock fan not so good.

Other Thoughts: Excellent upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Fx-8350

Pros: Best bang for the buck and the CPU runs everything just fine on a Asus Sabertooth MoBo with Ripjaws16g-1600 memory.. Will auto overclock to 4.3ghz with the stock cooler. I'm using the Corsair H100 cooler with the stock 200mm fans in my Cooler Master HAF-932, I've run up to 4.8ghz using the AMD program. Once over 4.8g the fans really dial up and things start humming. But since I have no programs or games that stress it, I leave it on auto tune.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Forget about power consumption! Just cooking a breakfast of bacon and eggs on my electric stove is equal to my PC running for 40 hours non-stop!

5 out of 5 eggsFX8350 = Beastmode

Pros: I built my 1st Gaming rig about 2 years ago purchased the FX8350 (the day it came out) I am running it with

MOBO: ASUS Crosshair V Formula
Ram: 32gb G-Skill Sniper
Cooler: Evo 212 dual airflow with 2-240mm 1-200mm 4-120mm fans.
Ssd: Phoenix 240gb
HDD: WD 500gb black edition (finally ran out of room & ordering a an additional 2tb black edition)
Graphics: MSI GTX 760 2gb
dedicated PhysX: GTX 570 1.5gb (more then enough as a dedicated physX processor)
PSU: SuperNova 1300 G2
Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

This baby runs anything you can possible through @ it I have it OC'd to 4.5ghz and have literally tried to overload the system running every possible thing I could including every virus scan etc that I could think of @ 1 time and never used more then 26% of its total processing power (or more then 20% of my available ram)

My brother has an older generation I7 and performance wise both systems are very similar. This build also works very good for gaming (you won't hit 300fps) but you will never drop below 60 on ultra and you will average 130-160 Over all this CPU is AMAZING and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good gaming system that can also out multitask Intel with very little effort.

Also: I would NOT!!! suggest doing this. but when I was OC'ing it I increased the voltage like 5x what its supposed to be and (should have instantly fried the entire system) instead it ran perfectly while testing a videogame for 5 minutes until (I noticed it and fixed it) I think that speaks pretty highly of the quality and wanted to mention it.

Cons: I can't say I've found any over the last 2 years with this.

1 out of 5 eggsTotal piece of junk

Pros: Big words

Cons: Melted onto my 150$ liquid cooler
Fried my board
Almost gave me a heart attack dealing with customer service

Other Thoughts: This useless waste of metal is by far the worst computer part Ive ever seen! I waited for 3 weeks to get it and when i mounted it i was so excited. I barely got done with my chrome install by the time it was beyond recovery heat wise.
P.S. my 120$ core i3 ran made this thing look like it was from the 80's when it came to performance
