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 eggsHOT

Pros: Hot processor, over clocks up to 4.3 GHZ without little difficulty after that point gets a little unstable. Performs as expected, very very fast and without any flaws.

Cons: Not in more than one way.

Before I purchased this CPU I read the reviews stating that the heat sink fan was cheap. Yes it is! I was thinking people were just being picky. But even in a cool room at 4.0 GHZ it will exceed 150 degrees F.

Consider purchasing a high performance heat sink fan with the purchase.

I will not knock any stars for this because I believe they should never sell fans with processors due to they will always be in different environments.

Other Thoughts: Just all around good processor. If using with Windows 7 make sure to do your research. Limited support with Windows 7 since it come out after that edition. Use the updates and patches put out by the motherboard manufacture.

2 out of 5 eggs2 years ago, this made me an Intel fan.

Pros: *I like Amd's clip in system better then intels install on mobo, its easier and seems more secure.

When I was a first time builder, and wanted to stay cheap but still get a really powerful PC, AMD's cost to power ratio seemed so much better then Intel. I kept comparing over and over and really believed in AMD claims that it was equal to Intel processors who were $100 more expensive. Is it?

Cons: It wasn't.

I won't say who I am but I am a semi-relevant person in high ranking league of legends. Now I need a powerful cpu to stream games live in 1080p with OBS. With the default 4.0ghz, I could with the lowest possible settings in the game, I could not run stream past 540p, (even worse, I couldn't get past 360p if i had my webcam on). I tried doing many things to optimize this setup, switching broadcasting software from xsplit to obs, using chrome while i stream as its lower resource then firefox, trying to free up as much as possible. Then overclocking.

I obviously was not getting the power I had thought out of the default 8350. So it was time to try to up it through OC. I upgraded the cooling as much as i felt neccesary, went into my bios and first tried 4400 Ghz increasing the power as much as neccesary. Instantly the temperatures climbed and I had my power. Opening OBS and trying to stream again, I could not play with more then 30 fps and streaming 720p. Upping it to 4.8ghz, where I currently am, could get me to 720p and stable 60 fps, unless tons of action were to happen, in which case I would go down to 35-40. But the temperatures at that point are just too high to sustain in good conscious according to other people OCing online in good consciousness.

The cpu worked great for other games, such as things that weren't as cpu intensive and relied more on graphics cards. BF3, BF4, etc. But cpu related work, streaming, rendering, would all bottleneck this cpu even when overclocked. It was frustrating beyond end.

4.6 Ghz OC - 8 core sounds like so much to a first time builder. Not everyone has people around to tell them an intel 3.2ghz 4 core has more processing power then this for about the same price now. I knew intel was stronger, but not to what extent. I didn't research enough and wondered why no other streamers used AMD cpus.

Other Thoughts: All I want is people to do a little more digging so they arn't dissapointed like I was here. I'm not saying don't buy it, but be sure it has enough power. MOST i7's with atleast 3.0ghz have more power then this 8350 visehera. I didn't know that at the time, being a first time building noob thinking this was stronger then it was because of the 8 cores.

If you do choose to buy this ~ Don't even open the stock fan. Seriously. Don't. The cheapest fan you can buy from coolermaster or artic will already shave a lot of heat off it. I used the stock for a few days on basic clock while i waited for the other parts to arrive on super egg saver. Not only was it loud, but the cheap coolermaster fan I got took 30 degrees off (30!) in comparison just idling. And rip in peace if you ever try to overclock with that terrible amd stock fan.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome price to performance

Pros: Works excellent. Haven't over clocked it yet, haven't had to. I unpacked all 8 cores and wow, same as if I would have OC. All games then take advantage of all 8 cores now.

Cons: Stock cooler sucks and is very loud. I got the corsair H100 extreme performance and it does the job great and quiet

3 out of 5 eggsLess than expected

Pros: Good stock core speed
Good use of cores

Cons: Runs HOT
Stock cooler does not suffice for proper cooling

Other Thoughts: for some reason, the CPU I received had gouges and scratches on the surface.

Will be lapping the surface here soon.

Would like to see better CS from AMD.

4 out of 5 eggsHorrible Fan, Great Processor

Pros: Super fast, handles anything you throw at it

Cons: The heatsink fan is absolutely terrible, as some others were saying. The stock one needs to be replaced immediately. The idea of the manufacturer continuing to sell this processor with this heatsink is inexcusable. If your considering buying this processor, make sure your budget includes a higher grade cooling unit. (which isn't saying much)

Other Thoughts: BUY A NEW FAN

5 out of 5 eggsA economical powerhouse

Pros: With my recent build of my 2nd PC I decided to stick to my guns with an AMD CPU. My previous FX-4350 was a fantastic chip; fast, overclock ready, and at a reasonable price. The FX-8350 is set to give me the same fantastic service that the FX-4350 , also at an economic price. The 8350 destroys multithreaded applications as well as the most modern games. I can render 720p video at 60 FPS in almost real time in sony vegas, and i have not even tried 1080p yet! I get consistent 60 FPS or above in games like Watch_Dogs, Far Cry 3, Metro: Last Light and Battlefield 4. The 8350 is also; like most AMD chipsets, an overclocking champ. The FX-8350 shows the way of the future; which is multithreaded programs and games. When developers start to utilize more than 4 cores, CPUs like the 8350 will shine. If you need an economic solution to your high end gaming needs look no further than the FX-8350.

Cons: Now to be fair, the 8350 is beaten by Intel's haswell series i7 chipsets in singlethreaded performance. Also The 8350 is a hot running chip. Make sure you have a decent cooling solution, especially if you want to overclock. The stock heat sink will not cut it. Also the stock heat sink is really loud.

Other Thoughts: The FX-8350 is a fast, reasonably priced CPU that runs as hot mt. Fuji. I wholeheartedly recommend it. Also note that this 8350 was paired with a 4gb GTX-770 and 16gb of 2400MHz Mushkin redline RAM, If any first time builders where wondering.

4 out of 5 eggsSo LOUD

Pros: Great speed, helps a ton with CPU heavy games like BF4.

Cons: I didn't think it would be so loud. Most people are really pick about how loud a CPU fan is... I thought they were just being picky. No. This thing sounds like a C130 is taking off in my room. It's an UNBEARABLY loud sound. If I wasn't broke I'd throw this heatsink in the garbage right now. REPLACE THE STOCK IMMEDIATELY.

5 out of 5 eggsFlies

Pros: This puppy flies. Has no temp problems or problems with heavy loads.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Used this to build a machine for a friend of mine. This thing chews up everything in its path. He has had it now for over a year and has no issues at all and it stays nice and cool even under heavy stress.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU, horrible fan

Pros: Fast octocore CPU. AMD hasn't let me down on this one.

Cons: The fan is HORRIBLE. The stock fan rattles and is super loud under load and I can hear it from across the room even on Idle. I just ordered a Hyper 212 Evo to replace it. At first I disregarded it thinking that it couldn't be that bad but it is.
