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 six “Piledriver” cores ensure breathtaking 3D modeling and HD video edition as well as maximum multitasking. 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 6-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability.  Superior 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 6 Piledriver cores The native 6-core desktop processor ensures breathtaking 3D modeling and HD video edition as well as maximum multitasking 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 eggsAMD fails to disappoint!

Pros: Good clock speed, big cache, 6-cores for great multitasking, great gaming performance, BF4, BF3, Skyrim, GTA IV, Guild Wars 2, Dragon Age, etc all run smoothly even with my dated GPU, almost no need to overclock (although I may to squeeze a little more performance when GTA V finally hits PC), great price, lower power consumption vs FX8320

Cons: It is not an FX8320, other than that none to speak of!

Other Thoughts: I have always like AMD, and their ability to deliver good solid products cheaper than competitors, not always as fast, or bleeding edge, but always good, solid, dependable products for a price that people like me can agree with.

5 out of 5 eggsbudget gamer

Pros: great core overclock potential.
performance/$

Cons: Ram speed seems to be limited to 1866. From what I've read it seems to be common in the fx line of processors

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome processor

Pros: I got this awesome 6 cores CPU on sale for about $100 and let me tell you, what a bang for the buck this is!
I was surprised to see the actual performance stand neck to neck to a more expensive Intel i5 CPU. Having checked many benchmarks before buying, I wasn't expecting much, but what a pleasant surprise this was.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Happy Happy

Pros: - its way faster than I hoped
- inexpensive
- runs cool with my 6 year old Zalman (92mm) air cooler
- ready to overclock

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Look, I really wanted an unlocked i7 or at least an i5 intel cpu, but didnt want to spend that much. I decided I would get an 8 core AMD. I ended up settling with this 6 core because of the money savings with the intent to upgrade later. My kids are heavy gamers and I sneak in a few myself when my wife isnt looking. To keep this long story short, I will not be upgrading this cpu. Its way faster than I expected. I am so glad I saved the money. I have it over clocked at 4.2 GHZ. I have not tried to clock it any higher because I dont need to. My old Zaman air cooler (similar to ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm , if you want to reference it) fits perfect and keeps this cpu at a cool 25C idle and 46C under load. I do have a high air flow gaming case but these numbers are much cooler than the old Phenom I upgraded from.

My system:
AMD FX-6300
ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
EVGA 02G-P4-3757-KR G-SYNC GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 250 GB SSD main drive
WD VelociRaptor 300GB secondary
RAIDMAX 630W PSU
Windows 7

4 out of 5 eggsNot to shabby

Pros: Great multitasking performance.

Cons: Paired with a GA-990FXA-UD3, 8gb 1333mhz, r9-270x and SSD. I was disappointed in the overall snappiness and gaming performance of the system.

Other Thoughts: For the price i can't complain. I was already an Intel'r but after putting this system together it will take some convincing or some low prices before i think about building another AMD system.
