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 eggsFX 6300 from Intel

Pros: I have been an Intel cpu user for the last 15 years. I was hoping not to regret getting this cpu over an i5 build.
Ive had i5 and i7 builds, so I can testify to the performance of the FX 6300 compared to these intel cpu's.
There is a small difference between the FX 6300 and the i5 3570k in some task's there is quite a bit of difference the i5 is noticeably faster.
But when I overclock the FX 6300 everything changes. This cpu overclocks beautifully!!
To experience this you must have, a good cpu cooler, a good motherboard is a must!!
Yeah people say but you have to buy a aftermarket cooler, Don't listen to that, my intel cpu's always have aftermarket cooler!!!
Basically, I have a cpu that performs as well as any I5 In gaming and general computer use. For $100 less.
The FX6300 runs cool and does not use a lot of power @4.7 GHZ.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Get this cpu....... and a good modern motherboard ...990 type.

4 out of 5 eggsExelent cpu for a budget gaming pc build

Pros: still runing good

Cons: dose not beat ps4 and is not really capable of nextgen gaming but nom pc really is capable of nextgen under 4 grand.

Other Thoughts: for gaming get a ps4, for light gaming between last gen and nextgen graphics this card will do the trick. just not n next gen capable like ps4.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat deal

Pros: benchmarked almost as high as what fx-6350's average passmark. Not even overclocked (scored 6703) does as well as intels that are priced at $200. Wasn't so sure the 3 physical core with 2 virtual on each would be so great but I was really surprised.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

5 out of 5 eggsgood cpu

Pros: very good processor for the price. I have no problems with the stock cooler I have it overclocked at 4.3ghz and a average temperature of about 30 degrees Celsius and getting no higher than 49. . Overall very good processor can run battlefield 4 at about a average fps of 65-75fps along with my xfx dual dissipation 280x

Cons: no cons so far

5 out of 5 eggsGood CPU

Pros: Very good cpu for the price, doesn't beat a I7 but wasn't made to compete with them. With Liquid cooling your suppose to beable to hit 5ghz with it, on stock air cooling i've hit 4.3. and stable runs just shy of the fx8250 stock 8 core in performance at that speed.

Cons: unable to push it higher on stock air cooler ;-)
