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 fx 6300

Pros: Huge upgrade for me and the upgrade really shows when playing games like bf3 or 4. Thinking of tossing my gf my gtx760 and grabbing a gtx970 to pair with it.

Cons: none that i can really think of

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Processor No Problems!

Pros: Great AMD PGA Processor! It's fast, stable and does what is suppose to do. I am using it in a Server build with a MSI Military Grade Motherboard and have had no problems.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Not too sure if you can unlock more cores, but as always you can overclock it, I would suggest a Deepcool heatpipe system to handle this. It has "Turboboast" to 4.1Ghz, I would imagine they mean overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsCertainly the sweet spot for budget gaming with good FPS

Pros: I got this CPU to fulfill certain requirements for my new dedicated CPU + dedicated GPU gaming rig. I needed a fast processor for low cost, with low TDP and the best overall compatibility with my Asus M5A97 R2.0. Potential for decent overclock with an aftermarket cooler.

Cons: Not an 8-core (2 cores not powered), and still slower than a 1st gen i7-2700K quad-core in most applications.

Other Thoughts: If you're trying to save some money but hate to compromise performance for low cost, just get this processor. I'm getting 60-70fps in Starcraft II @ ultra, and 45-55fps in Farcry 3 @ very high with a HD7850. You want even faster, then put your games on an SSD or get at least 8GB of CL8 1600 or higher memory.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, great processor

Pros: -cheap for the power it gives
-6 cores means multitasking is a breeze
-stays nice and cool
-for a stock cooler, its surprisingly quiet

Cons: -95 Watt TDP, not a huge deal but the Intel processors will do the same thing for less power consumption, but at the cost of more cash

Other Thoughts: -not a con for me, but there is NO integrated graphics on this processor. If you buy it and want to do anything with high res videos or play games, you will need to buy a GPU, otherwise things will start getting choppy fast
-this processor is the highest bang you'll get for your buck, though AMD did just release from new FX series processors that may be worth checking out
-overall super happy with my purchase

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang For Your Buck

Pros: So much power for such a great price. I've overclocked mine by 20% with all 6 cores active and man is this thing fast. Don't understand why anyone would buy intel when AMD is just as good and so much more affordable.

I would recommend it to anyone.

Cons: The included stock CPU fan is not adequate. I recommend spending an extra $20 and get a decent CPU cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD value..

Pros: My first AMD build since 3800x2 .. It's speedy little chip on windows 8.1 64bit and seems to run cool with the stock heat sink ..and I got a free game with the purchase!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I paired it with the Biostar 970TA board and Seagate barracuda 6Ghz hard drive and it seems fast..

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor, more than enough for gaming and anything else!

Pros: Been over a year now, and I am not sure I wouldn't buy the same one today! A lot of horsepower for a "budget" processor!

Cons: AMD will need to update their cores before I even think about buying another one!

Other Thoughts: The architecture is getting old AMD! I would love to see something exciting besides MANTLE!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This processor is great for anyone on a strict budget.

Hopefully AMD processors will become even better with the newer games becoming more multi threaded.

Cons: Heat sink fan was bent, couldn't get it on so I had to order an after market one. Oh well, you really should get an after market heat sink anyways.
