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).

Pros: This is the best cpu you can get for this price, remplaced the stock cooler went to 4.5GHZ easily, almost perform good as my i7 rig for the 1/3 of the price, a must buy, shipping was heck as fast only one day! from ONT to Montreal

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: You just can't beat the value of this processor in terms of performance for your buck. If you're like me and regularly have like 3-4 different programs running (multiple Chrome tabs, Skype, video games, etc.) you will be happy you chose this chip. AMD is the way to go if you're looking for a budget gaming pc that can handle multiple programs at once and be snappy while doing it.

Cons: Haven't had any problems.

Other Thoughts: - As for heat, If you clean the fans and heatsink a couple times a year you will be fine with the stock cooler. I noticed if i go for like 5-6 months without cleaning, the cooling gets REALLY bad to the point of shutting off under heavy load.
- If you plan on overclocking I'd go with a watercooler or Hyper 212 Evo. Watercooling also means a quieter system, if that's important to you.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking Great

Pros: Working great

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: This is working great paired with the ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+
and 4 meg of ram and a GTX 650 graphics card.

It plays World of Warcraft (WoW) around 30 fps on ultra settings pretty much no matter what I am doing.
