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 eggsgreat cpu

Pros: -fast cpu
-handles tasks pretty well
-whisper quiet fan in my case

Cons: -randomly high cpu usage at times for seemingly no reason

Other Thoughts: Having used many laptops and then making a switch to a desktop really makes this cpu feel fast. Anyway it's been good with the stock cooler, hasn't had any issues and in the case it's in it's the quietest fan in a case where none of the fans can be heard. It's all been surprising.

My only issue has been that at random times the cpu usage spikes to between 80% and 90% for seemingly no reason at all. There won't be anything really going on, but the usage ends up doing that.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to OC, Fast, Stable. Cool. I have always been an AMD fan!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was orig going to get a quad core for this build however when I saw this for not much more then I was going to pay for the quad this was well worth the little bit more.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: It's inexpensive and it competes within that zone with vigor.

Cons: I should've dropped more money on a better AMD processor.

Other Thoughts: Honestly though, is a CPU really a good place to skimp out on? I mean, I did it, and I kind-of regret it, but not enough to return it. Just look yourself in the mirror, and ask yourself, verbally not mentally, ask yourself "Am I really unable to purchase a more expensive AMD processor?". I feel like alot of people would say; "Yes, the economies bad and I really don't feel like stressing my budget". But for you One per-centers out there, drop the extra Hundie, like I will, in a year, when the prices drop.

5 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade

Pros: Awesome value. Works like a champ.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Installed in a Newegg refurbished MSI AM3+ MB. Smooth as silk. I wanted to upgrade my Phenom II X6 1090T with something that took advantage of DDR3 RAM. Spent just $300 on CPU, RAM, MB, and a 240GB SSD. Cheap Windows 10 upgrade insurance! :)

5 out of 5 eggsHello AMD, goodbye Intel

Pros: Fast, stable and runs cool with proper cooler.
The OEM cooler is very cheap and has no copper core, never used it. I added the Arctic Freeze 3 pipe cooler and runs @ 20 to 30 C.
I installed this on a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
with no regrets.

Cons: NO

Other Thoughts: I am very pleased with this CPU and the price is unbeatable. I like Intel but the price difference is outrageous. Maybe if I had money to burn, otherwise it's Goodbye Intel, hello AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsGood performer, Easy OC.

Pros: Unlocked for clocking makes this chip easy to deal with. Good price if you do not want to drop the extra cash on the 8350.

Cons: Gets a little warm with stock cooler, toss that thing and replace with a corsair independent water cpu cooler or the Cooler Master 212 Evo..

Other Thoughts: No regrets on this purchase.. Thank You AMD

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected

Pros: I installed this CPU on two identical ASUS MoBos. Using standard heatsink that came in the box. Installation was a snap (literally). System runs cool. Under heavy gaming (Witcher 3), no unusual heating or loud fan noise.

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: I chose this cpu instead of the FX-8300 because of the lower power consumption (95 W instead of 125 W), and because of the FX-8300's necessity for larger aftermarket heatsinks claimed by other users here. This was a simple, clean installation that gives good performance and saves a bit of energy too.

5 out of 5 eggsbetter then i thought it would be

Pros: fantastic performance for the price (as usual by AMD). especially when it has 6 actual physical cores compared to more stressful workloads on intels hyper threaded core (i5 says quad core but its really a duo that detected as quad)

Cons: tends to get pretty hot under high work loads, but pair it with any 30-60$ after market cooler either air or liquid, and it runs perfectly fine!
