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 eggsvery good CPU

Pros: After I bought this Cpu I wasnt sure if I was going to like it or not, but after installing it, this baby clocked up wiht all 6 cores, and my Mobo has the unlock core system on it and unlock the other 2 cores, so now I'm running with all 8 cores, and it's clocked at 3.8 and the turbo is clocked out 4.2, this is a beast, I have thrown every high end game and allot fo heavy work prgrams, and it never slow down not one time, I love it, and I would recomend this Cpu to anyone.

Cons: the only draw back was the heatsinnk fan, it's way under power and can't keep the CPu cool, I would recomend a 4 or 5 Pipe cooling unit.
the stock cooling fan is very cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsDOA CPU and still gets 5 stars

Pros: well what can i say , I ordered this CPU and I was disappointed that it was doa when it arrived. I thought i was gonna have a terrible time with the return RMA and getting a new one i was not looking forward to it .. I buy alot of stuff from newegg and new id save money on shipping costs if i became a premiere member for 20$ for 3 months . so now im a premiere member put in for the RMA for my CPU get a shipping label no cost to me to send back I buy some other things from newegg that would of cost me 20 bucks in shipping so already paid for my premiere membership .. CPU made it to the RMA center within few days , approved the return CPU and got it within 2 days .. new cpu went in to MB fine and im back to my gaming .. I would recommend to anyone to purchase the $20 membership 3mo deal to save on shipping if your going to buy anything that might need to be sent back even if it doesnt you save on shipping ..

Cons: CPU was DOA only bad thing, but their customer service and RMA service made up for loosing an egg i thought ..

Other Thoughts: i saved more than $20 in shipping costs over the last month to quantify purchasing the membership. if i know im gonna be ordering alot of items within a few months period i'll more than likely become a member again .. Ive had the 6 core cpu now for a week and running smoothly

5 out of 5 eggsEasy 5/5

Pros: 6 cores
easily overclocked
CHEAP

Cons: runs really hot. (see thoughts below)

Other Thoughts: A few weeks after using this thing, playing games almost everyday, the stock cooler decided to die and let my processor heat up to the point where the system shut off (pre overclock!) Either the stock cooler is really lame or I received a faulty one. The processor was (thankfully) unharmed and still runs well. I replaced the cooler with an aftermarket and bumped up the speed to 4.1 ghz and disabled turbo. Absolutely no problems since.
I highly recommend this processor due to the cheap price. Great for gaming, great for multitasking!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works like it should. Price was right.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I like to give local business my money when I can, but the only shop in my town that had a CPU, had this one. They were asking above and beyond the HIGHEST price I could find on the Internet. So I saved $60 buy supporting Newegg instead.
