  • 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 eggsFast and Furious

Pros: This CPU really is the best bang for your buck. I get very good performance from it and it's a multitasking beast and can handle doing multiple things with extreme ease even when maxed out.

Cons: What everyone says is true about the included cooler. The cooler is definitely loud (because of the small fan which runs up to 6000 rpm) and is barely sufficient at keeping the CPU cool (only sufficient if you do not max out the CPU for any length of time or overclock it).

Other Thoughts: Trust me when I say even with the best thermal compound the CPU (using the stock cooler) WILL get over 60 Celsius after a while of heavy use, which is not what you want (and the fan will get louder).

Another thing to keep in mind is your RAM (or memory). If you have problems check that your memory is configured correctly and the timings and voltage is correct. For me I was running mine at a lower clock mainly because I was using an old CPU that couldn't use the full speed the memory was capable of. After upgrading the machine it automatically up clocked the memory and it would not POST and if it did it would freeze shortly after. At first I thought the CPU was bad but it turned out to be the memory.

5 out of 5 eggsA welcome return to AMD

Pros: Very affordable and performs just as well (if not better) than pricier CPUs.

Cons: Stock CPU cooler very loud but that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: After leaving AMD and going to Intel for my last 2 builds, I'm very happy with my decision to return to AMD. A LOT more bang for your buck on this side of the fence.

5 out of 5 eggsBest for the price :)

Pros: This cpu is amazing. Like really. Fast as hell, and for such an amazing price you can't skip this deal.

Running cpu intensive games (bf3,csgo) with a hd 7770 csgo hits 300 fps med settings, and bf3 56-60 ultra. Great multitasker too.

Also A lot of people complain it runs hot, even though technically it should because of more power consumption.

But.. with an evo 212 I get 17-19c idle and mid 30's while gaming. Stock speeds too. Thing is a boss :)

Cons: Can't cook.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend 10/10

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Upgrade

Pros: Upgraded from FX 6200 and can now stream to twitch at 60fps in most games with no issues. Having 8 cores is really useful when working with virtual machines. Can be overclocked quite a bit, currently it at the same clock speed as the 8350 (4ghz).

Cons: Its 4 years old? Hardly a con for the performance.

Other Thoughts: I also purchased a new a cpu cooler and it has not gone above 60c once when I ran prime95 stress test.

2 out of 5 eggsMotherEgging Cooler, Good cpu

Pros: The CPU is good for gaming and video editing when its not over heating.

Cons: Arrived in good condition other than the cooler, the cooler they sent lasted about 8 hours, after reapplying thermal paste and being gental with everything the plastic around the motheregging fins completely shattered for no reason, now i have to deal with the annoyance of it over heating + banging against the fins, thanks AMD.

Other Thoughts: I am so upset that I spend 139$ on something that is supposed to being close to mid range/ top end gaming equiptment and they can't even send a proper usable cooler.

3 out of 5 eggsIts a 8320

Pros: Runs great on games unless your being throttled (See cons).
Processes things.
Can produce good frame rates

Cons: Plan on buying a after market cooler, when I got mine I slapped it in the new sabertooth I got and when i got thermal radar installed i noticed at idle i was up at 60C AT IDLE! Replaced the thermal compound on it with some that i had laying around and it went down to about 50C. No boost, no OC. default motherboard settings.

Fan is also ridiculously loud on turbo, don't get me wrong, fans are annoying as it is, but this one I can hear all the way almost 25 ft away. I'm not impressed with the cooler at all.

Other Thoughts: When buying this understand you need a after market cooler to keep your mind centered.
Also consider thermal paste, i think the paste they had on their might have dried up in warehouse or possibly just didn't use good paste.

I might rethink AMD next time.

5 out of 5 eggsNot the fastest out there, but darn cheap.

Pros: Works as expected. If you are expecting to get i7 level performance out of it, get real.

Cons: Still costs a lot more on the Egg than at MC - I really wish anyone else offered prices that low.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend getting an AM3+ CPU for anyone building a new machine at this point. If you are upgrading from a lower core count AM3+ CPU or an older Phenom II on an AM3+ mobo, fine, it's quite worth it. But, it's a dead platform, and indeed AMDs presence in the desktop market is quite possibly dead as well. Do yourself a favor and go socket 1150 - even a cheap i3 will do better in many areas, and you will still have an upgrade path.

And yes, I am an AMD fanboi, but even I can't get past the fact that these are severely outclassed these days.

Also, don't bother with an 8350 or 8370 - the 8320s will almost always overclock to the same speed with the same stability, and will cost significantly less.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent

Pros: upgraded from a phenom x4 975 and I love it. I have this clocked at 4.4 ghz at 1.4v on air with a silenx efz 120 with a push pull set up and on prime 95 it peaks at 54c. very nice cpu. still had a lot of clocking it can do but I can't cool it.

Cons: none
