  • 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 eggsExtremely pleased with my first AMD CPU

Pros: So I've officially had this thing for over a year and it's still kicking very well.

Add a Hyper Evo 212 it becomes whisper quiet. I think if you're going to buy a computer this is definitely worth the extra effort and for $20 - it's still a much, much better value than the i5 4660 I was going to buy for $230 (a year ago). Just make sure it plays well with your RAM sticks, case, motherboard, etc.

Not to mention the Evo 212 can still be used later on down the road for any other CPU I get in a future build - Intel or AMD.

Cons: It's loud, definitely loud. Tweaking settings in the bios and AMD Catalyst Control Center definitely help tune things down but once again - it still gets loud during taxing games.

In terms of heat, I never felt heat from my computer. Maybe my room is larger or better ventilated, but I never felt heat.

The thermal paste applied started creeping out from under the included heat sink/CPU cooler when I first applied it. There seems to be a tad bit too much. I cleaned it off with 99% pure alcohol and it became a non-issue.

Other Thoughts: Incredible bang for the buck.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 8 Core CPU for any task!

Pros: 1 - Has awesome performance to dollar ratio
2 - Can run any game, or task with no issue at all.
3 - Is kinda cheaper than it's intel counter part(5960x)
4 - Made to Game and Run intensive tasks at a Cheap price!
5 - Best CPU for Any Demanding Task(Average User/Gamer)

Cons: 1 - CPU Heatsink that comes with it, can get kinda loud, but what would you expect when you could just spend a few more and get a AIO, or a better Heatsink.

2 - People are saying it has a huge amount of heat coming out of it, Totally not the problem, If you have a huge amount of heat coming from it, then your case isn't providing it enough air to cool it.

3 - Doesn't come with a AIO Water Cooling kit, or Better Heatsink(Stock is nice but kinda loud depending on the task)

4 - Doesn't have Hyperthreading alternative(Like Intel CPU's have)

Other Thoughts: Great for any Build, AMD just needs to roll out the Zen CPU's and then we could see another AMD CPU Brand be the best Performance to Price!

5 out of 5 eggsit's okay

Pros: Cheap, gets the job done okay. Never runs above 60 degrees for me at least.
I recommend if you can get it cheaper, try getting it used or on a sale.

Cons: It's not the great, decent deal for 120$/150$
It isn't that good of an 8 core. It's just 2x4

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU in its price point

Pros: Very fast much better than my previous CPU(A8 3870k) no more bottleneck on my R9 270k raised FPS up to 60 on high settings on GTA V from bout 50+ FPS on mostly normal settings. Unlocked Multiplier, 8 cores, runs cool with a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 using Arctic Silver 5 paste @ stock settings keeping it around 25c @ idle.

Cons: not Zen or free lol

Other Thoughts: Plan on overclocking with current cooler then getting a liquid cooler to max out this chip.

2 out of 5 eggsAwful heatsink

Pros: None, never got to try it.

Cons: Heatsink is very large, and getting it attached requires ALOT of force, much more then I was comfortable using. Extremely hard to remove as well, so don't install if you think you may be changing heat sinks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: It's a solid CPU. The stock cooler is good enough, but if you're doing any overclocking you should be using an aftermarket cooler and a decent motherboard. Mine OCed to 4.8 GHz using a Thermalright Macho with some Gelid GC Extreme thermal compound on an Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 motherboard.

Cons: Uses a good bit of power. Not a problem as long as you have decent airflow in your case.

Other Thoughts: There seems to be some misconception about the core/module thing. The bulldozer architecture is all about efficiently sharing resources. Each module basically has two full cores, with the exception of only having one FPU (floating point unit) per module. This means performance isn't quite as good as having eight true cores, but is certainly better than having hyper threading with a quad core CPU. Overall, this CPU is a beast and should be enough for just about anything out nowadays.

5 out of 5 eggsMore Than Enough, If You Can Keep Cool

Pros: 8 Cores*
Easy O.C. To 4.0Ghz on Stock Cooler.
Handles All Things At Breakneck Speed
Low Cost:Performance Ratio
Future Proof-ish

Cons: * = 4 Dual Core Cores Acting Like 8 Individual Cores
The Stock Cooler Needs Quarterly Cleaning To Ensure A Blanket Of Dust Doesn't Form Between The Fan and The Top Of The Heatsink.

Other Thoughts: This Budget Build:
ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard
AMD FX-8320 @ 4.01 Ghz
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1333
ASUS GeForce GTX 650 GTX650-E-2GD5 2GB 128-Bit
3 TB 6.0GBs

4 out of 5 eggsgot 3rd party cooler

Pros: fast, but very hot . running seti and einstein (bionic) @home. and still not using all power in 8 cores . over clocked well 4.6 g stable (with h212 evo) stock volts only mulit adjusted. from 17.5 to 20 . went back to gtx650 no match for amd hd 7700 ,thought amd cpu chipset motherboard gpu and magic happens . sadily nothing happened infact made wore unstable. 7700 to blame.

Cons: HOT, Required different cooler, stock not up to par, shame on amd to put product out you know needs better cooler. most programs cant use all 8 cores , most power goes to waste . running seti and einstein (bionic)

Other Thoughts: should included far better cooler , other pricier cpus do water even , better air not to much to ask. went from 135f no oc to 115 and oc to stratosphere.

4 out of 5 eggsFast Budget CPU, some caveats

Pros: Fast for the money and cheaper than an intel chip. Easy to overclock.

Cons: The stock cooling fan is incredibly noisy and once you ad the cost of an aftermarket cooler you are up to the cost of superior intel chip

Other Thoughts: This is a good CPU, but think about what your application is before you buy. It will fit some better than others
