  • 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).

4 out of 5 eggsGood and bad

Pros: 8 cores
Fast

Cons: HEAT HEAT HEAT

I complained about bad temperatures in my first review. I still haven't bought a water cooler, but I plan on ordering one today because my temps are not acceptable to me. My house is very dusty and temperatures go straight to hell, literally and figuratively, when my case gets dusty, which doesn't take long because I have a ton of fans.


I just cleaned it 3 days ago and my temps were somewhat acceptable, around 30c idle and 56c gaming. After just 3 days my temps are back to around 35c idle and the cpu is throttling now as it hits 62c while gaming. Underclocked to 3.2ghz and I'm back down to 56c while gaming. Unacceptable and my case is not even close to as dirty as it was before, and has better than excellent air flow.

Bottom line, if you can't sell a processor with sufficient cooling, don't sell it. It's basically false advertising to say the stock heatsink and fan sufficiently cool the processor, because it does not. Mind you, my temps are from gaming. I don't even want to see the insane temps I would get had the processor been running at 100%.

Absolutely unacceptable cooling. Barely even good for everyday web browsing and video. This should knock 4 eggs off the rating because it does not work right out of the box, like it should, but I'm a nice guy and minus the EXTREMELY poor heatsink, it performs well.

Other Thoughts: This is my second review as I feel it needed an update after owning for a longer period of time.

I originally had it paired with an XFX HD7850 1gb video card which was actually a huge bottleneck and I had very sub-par performance with gaming. I have since upgraded to an XFX R9 290X DD and the difference was night and day, handles any game I throw at it, maxed out. I achieved 50fps average with Tomb Raider maxed out at 4k with TressFX enabled, impressive.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz

Pros: Great price for the performance

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: AMD always had good prices for the performance, I will certainly buy AMD again

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang for the Buck

Pros: Great price for an eight core processor that seems to perform well.

Cons: The included CPU fan is a little loud, but not enough to be a problem.

Other Thoughts: I guess most benchmarks showing comparable Intel chips out performing these AMD chips particularly with single threaded applications, but this thing runs great and was an excellent value all around.

5 out of 5 eggsA Mazing.

Pros: With the stock cooler, the cpu did alright, I wouldn't really suggest you do much with your cpu other than light to medium gaming. The unit I received was in perfect condition when received. As such, I'll summarize every point of why this cpu is worth it.

■3.5ghz on 8 core
■Unlocked so it makes for a great over clocking cpu
■Is the little sister to the 8350
■Makes for the perfect mid-grade gaming cpu

Cons: There wasn't many complaints about the cpu, but for at least one bad thing is how the cpu comes shipped. The cpu is shipped on the side of the box, so very closely inspect the unit upon receiving for any physical damage due to transport condiitons.

■The packaging is susceptible to damage during transportation; but is well packaged
■Not entirely 4.0ghz until over clocking
■Needs a better cooler for when overclocking; I suggest the h100i

Other Thoughts: I couldn't come up with anything bad to say about the cpu, much less even the one I got. The cpu is great for myself as I actually enjoy the cpu. I have my cpu overclocked to 4.37ghz and I'm using a H100I liquid cooler. My idle temps with the set up is running roughly 28-31 depending on the day. My lowest idle was 25, at night and freshly turned on with no programs running. I'm kind of disappointed with how I couldn't achieve a full 1ghz of overclock, but there's probably nothing I can do about it.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!

Pros: This thing is amazing. It's fast, it's smooth, and it's powerful.

The power to cost ratio is far better than any Intel Core i7. I have used both the i7 and this beast side by side for compiling Linux distros and Android ROMs. I will take the AMD any day of the week.

Cons: It runs really HOT! I had to get a good aftermarket cooler to be able to use the CPU, but now it sits at about 15 degrees Celsius.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed.

Pros: Great Performance If you the type of person who runs 20 browser windows and several other apps at the same time.

Cons: RAW CPU power seriously lacking. Can not handle a PS2 game even when OCed to 4.4Ghz. no mater what configuration or plugins you try. Single threaded is no better than my AMD A6-5400K. Extra cache seems useless.

Other Thoughts: I have seen better FPU performance from a Pentium D 805
Shipping Fast as ALWAYS!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesomeness

Pros: This thing is a beast
- 8 cores
- games well
- great overclocking

Cons: The stock heatsink is okay, but a bit noisy

Other Thoughts: I have this OC'd to 4.7 ghz using a Thermalright Macho Rev. A, it has not yet passed 48 C running Prime95

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor for the money.

Pros: This thing will overclock with the best of them.

Cons: Tends to get the socket on my MA599FX Pro 2.0 really hot.

Other Thoughts: I have no problem with core temps exceeding 50 degrees with EVO 212 cooler overclocked at 4.5. The problem is the socket temps and that is probably my mobo so I can't dock an egg for that. Very happy with performance.

5 out of 5 eggs2 Years of ownership, No complain.

Pros: I bought this processor in late 2013 from new egg to buid my budget gaming rig for $149 & i don't regret buying this one for a single minute. The level of multitasking you can do is really good comparing the price.

If you are getting the 8320 know this, you are not getting a state of the art hyper fast processor but what you are getting is a modest middle of the road, which has a serious overclocking potential,

Currently I am running this processor @4.00 Ghz 24/7 on air. Yes I am using an aftermarket cheap cooler(Cryorig H7 @$34.50) but boy it still runs good.

Cons: Stock cooler. Get rid of that as fast as possible
