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 eggsZOOM ZOOM ZOOM

Pros: This thing is a beast, my old CPU over heated figured i would treat myself to something nice, i have not been let down. AMD has made an extremely high quality CPU.

Go out and buy one, if you don't you will be sad and have to go to bed without dessert

Cons: none to report

Other Thoughts: Even the stock cpu cooler is kinda sexy, granted most will want to buy their own but either way. very happy customer.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It can handle multitasking pretty well, The price was appealing.

Cons: None so far. But I'll make sure to tell people around if something goes wrong with it.

Other Thoughts: My guess is that this CPU is good at generating heat.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat high-end CPU on a budget

Pros: It works, and it's a fairly powerful CPU especially for the price.

Cons: 125W is high compared to Intel's offerings, but I'm not overclocking.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for an ESXi game server I'm running. It's running Minecraft servers, Space Engineers servers, a website, and TeamSpeak and not even breaking a sweat yet. Great choice for a budget ESXi build.

Pros: Great speeds and potential. Priced fair for the performance.

Cons: This processor runs quite warm... so beware.. make sure you have liquid cooling or extra fans.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MOBO

Pros: This is a highly customizable MOBO which is NOT for the faint of heart nor the noob. If you are a technical person than this is definitely for you. Otherwise, save your cash and get a MOBO with less overclock abilities.

Cons: The only real con I have found is that the "Free" software is only on the CD. I don't have one of those as I stopped using them in the 90's....

5 out of 5 eggsFx octobeast

Pros: 8 cores (see other thoughts for a fun rant about this lol).
Multi tasks like a champ
This cpu is like a v8 turbo diesel truck engine (powerstroke ftw). It is not the fastest out there but it can handle any load that your standard gamer or home 3d or video renderer will do with plenty of room to spare.
the 8320 and its "bigger" brother the 8350 are the best overall bang for your buck in raw cpu power. If you are a comfortable with over clocking go with the 8320, but if not go with the 8350. They are identical in all areas aside from the clock speeds they come with out of the box. Not that you really need it to be any faster than it is out of the box in my opinion. Runs all my games like butter at max settings at perfectly playable to obscenely high fps paired with my r9 270x which is overclocked to 1100mhz. I have worked with the fx 6300 (which I put in my brother's build) and the 8350 which is in one of my friends builds and the 8320 which is in my personal build. All of them are very solid cpus.
The 8350 out of the box scored slightly lower than a stock i7 3770 for a good chunk less! (do the math I would tell you how much it is but I dont want that to scratch my review as it would be including "prices/avaialblilty"
Cinebench revision 15
i7 3770@3.5ghz score: 662 this score was provided to me by the sofware itself I didnt get to test this one, all the other ones I tested 5 times and took an average of them.
8350@4ghz: 636
8320@3.5ghz: 556
Comparison to i5 series: 489 (3570 specifically which is VERY similar to the 4670 in performance aside from the new Haswell power saving features etc): which is priced comparably to the 8350 when it is not on sale.

Cons: 32nm tech. This is getting very outdated I hope amd will release a new fx line based on their 28 nm tech that is being used in their new apu line. Intel is at 22nm currently and plans to be at 14 by December 2014!
For those of you who dont quite know what this means, an intel cpu at 22nm clocked at say 3.5 ghz is comparable to an amd 32nm cpu clocked at 4 ghz. This means a bit more power usage and heat.
If you are gaming this is really irrelevant because there is no real gain in investing in faster ram speeds than 1333mhz (SPECIFIC TO DISCRETE GRAPHICS CARD USERS), but this line of cpus is not going to be able to handle some of the redonculous ram speeds some of the intel cpus will be able handle.
The stock heatsink provided will work, but I wouldn't use it. Idle with the stock heatsink is between 35-40 and that was enough for me to get an aftermarket cooler. I didn't want to see its max temps under load. Bought myself a cm hyper t4 brought my idle temps to 25-30 degrees C. Just factor some kind of aftermarket cooling into this if you want to fully push this thing without being worried about shortening its life span.
Lastly this will "limit you" to pci 2.0 slots for expansion, not that it really matters ( the story may be different if you plan to do 4k but that is not in my area of expertise. 1080p is plenty for me. Also if you are budgeting for 4k you would likely be searching for a bit more performance rather than the best price/performance.

Other Thoughts: Ignore anyone who says it is only 4 core with 8 threads they only looked at what windows task manager showed them. There are in fact 8 cpu core modules, they just share cache memory per 2 cores which makes it read as 1core with 2 threads x4. They do this because it makes the cpus run more effieciently then the preivious version of this line the fx X1X0 such as 8150 or 6100 otherwise known as bulldozer.
Maxed out settings (aside from anti aliasing and games that require 3gb of vram) on:
Assasins creed 4
Tomb Raider- Benchmark provided with the game gave me 40 fps on average with vertical sync on. (60hz 1080p tv)
Crysis 3-
BattleField 4 and 3-
Watch dogs-
World of tanks
Sniper Elite 2 and 3
Starcraft 2 (this was the only game the 8320 “struggled with” at stock settings because sc2 only utilizes 2 cores)
League- max fps of 360 so far ahah
Another thing start discounting the idea that games only use 4 cores. That is changing rapidly and I expect it to become more and more common for games to recomend 8 threads. Xbox 1 and ps4 both have 8 core cpus. Watch dogs in my opinon just needs 6 cores minimum on the amd side. Games that I know of at the time of writing this review that can use 8 threads or more recieved a hyphen (-) aside from league in my list of games maxed.
Hope this reivew helps out alot of people!
My personal build:
Fx 8320
xfx r9 270x 2gb black edition (may upgrade this to a r9 280 or 290 sometime in the future to aquire more vram)
xfx 650Watt psu pro series
gskill ares 1600mhz
gigabtye 990fx motherboard
1 tb wd blue 7200
256gb samsung evo ssd
Rosewill Challenger usb 2.0 version case

4 out of 5 eggsFX 8150 is great. AMD Overdrive, not so much

Pros: "REALLY power hungry, it usually runs at a 1.35V for stock, but toward the end of the first month I had to bump it up to 1.4V to keep all the cores working stable because I was getting these odd system hangs."

just wanted to say that ive had an 8150 for about 2 years now and your power is set way too high. I run my vcore at 1.22-1.3 tops. Stock is 1.5 witch is way too much vcore. Other than that great processor.

Cons: I just wish AMD Overdrive would work correctly. I have to go into overdrive and set all the parameters after every restart or even after coming out of sleep. even set my specs to default and it still wont hold settings after a restart or standby/sleep. and yes the box is checked that applys the profile at startup. Overdrive needs a revamp.
