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 eggsLove this processor

Pros: if i could give it 6 stars i would. I went from an intel chip to this AMD chip and for the money there is no comparison. The 8320 has been fast and flawless. At this point i dont see going back to intel any time soon. The processor is also easily overclocked as well. This is a function that is not available in intel at this price point. It is my understanding that you can take this thing to 4.2 G to 4.5 G without issue.

Cons: It runs hot as all AMD's do. Cooler Master EVO 212 takes car of this issue for just over 30 bucks so this con isnt really a con at all considering to get the same performance from an intel your going to pay about $100.00 more.

5 out of 5 eggs  works...IT WORKS

Pros: It's cool, the fan is quiet, all 8 cores are running at expected frequency. Don't try to overclock without an aftermarket cooler, I get stable enough temps and don't need to push it unless I can cool it. GET IT.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: -Runs my system very well
-Very fast all its own, the price is a bonus
-Combined with my SSD my system starts up in under 12 seconds
-Overclocks to stable 4.2GHz with Hyper EVO 212

Cons: -None so far

Other Thoughts: -Not the CPU itself, but the stock fan is small and very whinny. I replaced it with the Hyper EVO 212

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless Performance

Pros: Runs perfectly, Low temperatures, Stock cooler runs (surprisingly) well, Octo-core, Easy overclock, Relatively cheap

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU during a Black Friday sale last year, and I can say nothing but compliments about it. At the time, it was $120, just a mere $10-$20 more than much lower-end products. However, I would still buy it today at it's current price, as it completely overshoots my expectations of any product at that price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance

Pros: Lots of cores, great price/performance, easy to overclock. I've bought a couple of these for various builds.

Cons: Didn't win the overclocking lottery on the last one I bought. Not bad, just relatively high voltage required for a moderate 4.2GHz overclock.

5 out of 5 eggsA solid experience

Pros: - Great temps under low load (no higher 42 degrees Celsius watching videos)
- Provides great computing power, enough for intense gaming, video editing, and of course everyday tasks.
- Unlocked multiplier provides simple overclocking out of the box, sometimes as easy as loading a driver from your motherboard manufacturer and raising it. The stock cooler is decent but won't allow for much overclocking.
- Handles 3D rendering, gaming and other full loads without reaching over 65 degrees Celsius using a stock cooler and aftermarket paste.

Cons: - Pins can be easily bent, be careful.
- Stock cooling fan could be a little more large and quiet.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this processor, and paired with a Radeon R9 or even R7 Series graphics card, an SSD, and 8GB's+ of 1866mhz Ram provides an enjoyable experience and a more than acceptable grade of performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGood processor

Pros: I am an Intel Fanboy.....but this is a great processor. Speed and reliable - easy setup - and the comparable Intel processors are $70-$150 more in price. This isn't my first AMD product, but it is the most impressive.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: AMD makes great "mid-range" processors - I will no longer be utilizing the core i-3 products - AMD has won me over....
