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 eggsAmazing CPU for low price

Pros: This is faster and stronger than I expected. I've never used AMD CPU's before due to criticism, but I've never experienced the negatives from other reviews (not just here).

Cons: CPU requires a cpu cooler or will not operate. Warranty will be voided if you don't use their cpu cooler or attempt to use the cpu without a cooler.

However their cpu cooler is really small, and does not do a good job of cooling. Since it is known that this series of CPU's can get hot really quick, it is highly recommended you get another really good cpu cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for Daily Gamer

Pros: This processor gets the job done. It can handle video rendering, intense gaming, multiple programs, etc. I would highly recommend this for a cheap gaming build to get yourself started. The price is unbeatable, and the performance is amazing.

Cons: The stock fan is quite loud, and it does not do a great job of keeping the CPU cool. I would recommend getting a liquid cooling system.

Other Thoughts: I make YouTube videos, so I do a lot of multitasking, video rendering, research, gaming, etc. This card does the job, I will be upgrading my motherboard to an Intel though in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsNice budget build item

Pros: Only about $10 -20 more than the 4 core one. Have the fx4300 in one build, it can load up the processor in some extreme cases. The extra 2 cores of the fx-6300 have so far never resulted in a fully loaded CPU unless running benchmarking. In real world it's the "right" size. also , have a FX-8350 in another build, that monster is overkill for most folks. I mean it's cool. But unless you are doing some heavy rendering, nothing in real world can load the 8 core monster. Summary- on a budget- the 6 core version is the way to go. 4 core actually gets the job done just fine, but the price is so close of the 2, upgrade to 6 cores.

Cons: the stock cooler is the same as the 4 core version. Add a water cooler to keep temps down.
