  • 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 eggsGreat Processor for the Price3

Pros: Better Performance for games
Better Rendering
8 cores to work with
Turbo boost that boosts to 4.0Ghz when under load

Cons: Runs a little hot

Other Thoughts: Its a great bang for your buck, and all you need is an aftermarket cooler or liquid cooling to keep this CPU at a reasonable temp.

5 out of 5 eggsMajor Horsepower

Pros: Fast, very fast, did I say this is fast?

Cons: It wasn't free?

Other Thoughts: This is my first build for a personal rig in quite a while, and while I have built many multi core rigs for others, This is my first trip to octaland, gotta say I like it. I am astonished at the speed of this processor and it's ability to not get taxed by anything that I am doing. Time will tell as I will be using this to render video in the future, but so far very impressed.

Other Thoughts: for the price I don't think you will get a better CPU

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Processor

Pros: Does what it is supposed to. Hard to beat the performance for what it costs.

Has survived a lot of abuse over the past year, mine was even accidentally ripped out of the motherboard by a large aftermarket heatsink which bent several of the pins. After carefully straightening the pins and reinstalling everything has been fine for months. (If you travel a lot and have a large aftermarket heatsink, I suggest using lock-washers to keep screws from working their way loose over time and ripping out your CPU!)

Cons: FX AMD processors do not run Emulators and older games near as well as Intel due to having weaker per core performance, but like mentioned before it is hard to beat the performance for the price.

Stock cooler can be scary to install, it requires a lot of force on that lever to get it to snap into place. It is also loud if you are running the CPU near 100%. The stock cooler is also a dust magnet and collects a lot of dust every 4-6 months if you don't have filters on your fans. If you keep an eye on your temps you will notice them rise when it is time to clean.

Other Thoughts: If you want to use this for Emulators make sure to research some benchmarks so you know what to expect.

4 out of 5 eggsProcessor works well. Heatsink not so much

Pros: -Price
-Clock speed
-Easy to overclock

Cons: -Heatsink is horrible (read other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: The stock heat-sink included has a terrible fan, was sitting at idle at 4000rpm and a temp for about 50C. I highly recommend investing in either an aftermarket fan or liquid cooling. Otherwise its a great cpu for the money.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap
8 cores
Decent overclocking potential*(See cons)

Cons: Silicon lottery.(I was only able to push 4.3ghz stable on water even though my temps weren't really any higher when I attempted 4.4ghz+
Fairly poor single threaded performance

Other Thoughts: For the price of an i3 you can get an i5 an heck even a i7 competitor in some applications. Multi threaded apps will appreciate the extra cores but apps that only single or dual threaded will run much better on an i3/i5/i7/g3258

I feel the great price makes up for the poor single threaded performance.

5 out of 5 eggsnice processor

Pros: very nice processor, running at 4.0GHz with no problems and free heatsink/fan is a plus.

Cons: non so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product!

Pros: Totally happy with what I purchased, very fast. I currently have my processor clocked at 3.8 and I have no problem with it, and it continues to help run whatever I open up whether it be games or just applications. 10/10 I would buy again if I built another PC. For what you get it is actually very cheap.

Cons: I have No complains.
