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 eggsGreat Product!!!

Pros: This is nice, reliable, and fast. If you check out CPUboss it will show you that it's super good compared to some of the INTEL items. What makes this even better is that the price is so cheap!!!!

Cons: Haven't found any flaws yet!!!

Other Thoughts: Really great product and recommended for people who want a cheap and reliable processor.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good processor

Pros: This processor amazingly has brought me 35+ FPS in games from my previous CPU, as well as cutting g++ compiler times to mere seconds for larger projects, rather then half a minute. As upgrading from an Athlon II 640 Propus, this CPU's performance is outstanding!

But it won't be as quick as a lot of Intel's newer CPUs as they have better single thread performance, while the FX delivers better performance with multi-threaded applications and game engines.

- Comes with a nice sticker
- 4 Physical Cores, 4 Threads(Not true 8 core)
- The CPU has a large cache which helps in performance
- CPU is unlocked out of the box(Like most FX Processors)
- Performs very well for gaming and streaming for the price.
- Very fast clock - 4.0 - 4.2 GHZ CLOCK Speed - that is a lot of instructions at once.

Cons: - Box is a little flimsy for something in this price range.

Other Thoughts: For gaming, video streaming and video editing this processor is very good for the price range that it's in. It shreds a lot of other CPUs - including some Intel as well - when it comes to gaming and stream simultaneously.

5 out of 5 eggsSerious Performance

Pros: Ridiculously fast, 8 cores

Cons: Absolutely none

Other Thoughts: I will argue that this is down right the best processor for its price and even up to the 300 dollar range. Sure Intel has much better individual core performance and is more energy efficient. But this processor outperforms i5 and in a few cases i7. I have seen such evidence in my own experience and in data from various tests. Not to mention if programs make use of 6-8 cores, it will outperform i5 and i7 without hesitation.
I have been waiting to build my own pc for years so I could build a machine that would perform to my liking for years to come, and I am very pleased I chose this processor.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic!!!

Pros: Just bought this with the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard and MAN what a match made in heaven. I ditched the stock heat sink and I'm running it with Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It's sitting a 9c when idle and only gets to about 30c when worked a little bit. It's blazing fast. It's exactly what you'd expect.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsFast and Excellent Compatibility

Pros: I have a MSI 890GXM-G65 motherboard that I am pretty sure I bought like 5 years ago. I decided for my lab that I needed more horsepower and more cores to stop me from waiting all the time. I bought this 8 core monster and it slipped right into my motherboard without a single change to anything on my system. Outstanding boost in Processing Power and hassle free! Thanks AMD for the flexibility.

Cons: Stock cooler is fairly loud. May have to switch that out if it gets annoying. Does suck more power. My 500 watt cheapy PSU will not cut it anymore.

Other Thoughts: Great deal for a quick and easy performance boost. Still have not seen the price I had gotten it for here on Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsBest AMD for the Price

Pros: o Great performance and speed
o Silent as a mouse
o Can't be beaten for the price

Cons: o None so far

Other Thoughts: Haven't had to use the turbo feature, but so far I haven't needed to. Can't wait to see what else I can throw at this thing.

4 out of 5 eggshuge jump from a Phenom II :)

Pros: Nice and fast. Installed it on an ASUS M5A97R2.0 mobo which pairs up nicely. Clock speeds hit up to 4.3 with it's turbo function (or at least that's what I think it is). Running all my games at 5760x1080 now with 30-60 fps.

Cons: cooling. The stock heatsink/fan just didn't cut it. That fan would be spinning like mad and temps would hit well over 65C trying to game. Had troubles just with flash games in the browser! Would strongly suggest getting aftermarket heatsink/fan.

Other Thoughts: I ended up getting the Zalman CNPS 9700 LED heatsink/fan which is working out really well and was easy to install.
