  • 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.

5 out of 5 eggsMinimum Recommended CPU for Doom

Pros: Doubled my CPU benchmarks vs older 1045T.

Cons: Does not slice bread

Other Thoughts: This is the minimum spec CPU for the new Doom game. Low cost investment to get my system back up to gaming standards for new games.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat replacement for the flawed Vishera 9590

Pros: It runs cool, with no hiccups on a Crosshair V Formula Z board. I didn't get the same experience with the 9590 which would randomly freeze.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This is the best processor found to date that is a perfect balance of power and price. I don't even overclock, though with the setup I have it is possible if it were ever needed.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Sensors Same Degrees even after aftermarket cpu cooler. :(

Pros: I love AMD and always will. but......

Cons: I bought this cpu on 2/10/16 using stock cooler on it ran good until recently started running hot as heck 70c + I then bought a aftermarket cooler to replace stock cooler and still same issues hits the same degrees. I think the sensors went bad or something. I never overclocked this cpu main reason is I don't have a motherboard with a good phase power on it, so I didn't want to screw things up as it takes me time to buy pc parts as I work part-time and have kids to take care of. AMD finally let me down :(. been buying AMD cpus since the 9600 series and up. but since I have to save again I'll be ordering another amd cpu in about 2 months. Bad AMD lol now I can't have my gaming time until then.

Other Thoughts: I would always recommend AMD to anyone I come across. I just got a faulty one and don't have money or time to send it back and not have a pc for a few weeks.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible CPU

Pros: This runs my games smoothly. Very fast. Can be overclocked.

Cons: Not a con per se, but chips in this class can get very hot. Plan your heat sync accordingly. I used the Cooler Master Evo 212 and it can still get too hot.

Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommend for the price: $149.99.

1 out of 5 eggsFails Stress Test

Pros: Works when not loaded.

Cons: Tried three different stress tests on CPU (one that came with the motherboard & another I downloaded from amd direct even, the last one was independently made). Each time it crashed windows 10 and completely ruins all restore points. Each time I had to completely reinstall from scratch.

Other Thoughts: I almost always go with amd, but this has me wondering if I should have just gone with intel. Also bought this for intacipation of the oculus rift. After a clean install the oculus compatibility tool says amd is NOT COMPATIBLE.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple, powerful, loud fan.

Pros: Title says it. Works everything I can throw at it and then some.

Cons: The fan seems to kick up to full speed over nothing. In turn it makes it pretty loud, but tolerable.

Other Thoughts: On the note of the fan, while it is loud, it doesn't seem to let the processor get too warm. In fact, it is the coolest part of my system even when gaming (Coolest as in both temperature and also just awesome.). But since the fan is loud, I recommend either an after market fan, or if you are in a real bind for cash, or are just lazy, then I would recommend speedfan. Makes it not so loud when you are just on youtube or something.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-8350

Pros: The performance of this processor is excellent, specifically from a cost standpoint. I could have spent another 300 bucks or so and gotten marginally better performance from the Company with no Corporate SOUL, but I choose NOT to do business with liars and cheats.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am just waiting for Zen to come out, at which point I will turn this system into my HTPC/Server. 8 cores, 16 threads of SMT goodness. I've been waiting for this processor for 3 years! New mainboard, new processor, new DDR4 Memory.

5 out of 5 eggsHow do you beat a package like that!

Pros: I build Gaming computers on a budget and I have yet to see anything that beats an AMD FX-8350 for the money.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My Current rig...AMD FX 8350 with corsair H100i cooling solution, AMD 990FXA-UD3 Gigabyte MB, 32 gig of DDR3 1600 GSkill Trident, Powercolor AMD Radeon R9 390X 8 gig vid card, LG Blu ray burner, Corsair AX860 PSU, 1T WD hard drive and a 500 gig Samsung 840 Evo SSD. my monitor is an Asus VG278HE operating at 60hz, 120hz and 144 hz. Life is good!
