  • 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 eggsAwesome

Pros: Performs great..... overclocks well, Does what I need it to with out having to spend a ton of $$$$$$ on an intel chip

Cons: could come with a better heatsink

Other Thoughts: could use a better heat sink...I have mine on a cooler master water cooler though and it barely gets hot even under heavy load.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price for a great Processor

Pros: Used one of these in my first build, I use the computer for everything so it's on more often than not and I've had zero issue.

Cons: Stock fan and heat sink aren't the best but that's not news.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Processor for the price

Pros: This processor is amazing for the price you're paying. I built a gaming rig with one of these and I love my performance. Anyone building a budget PC should most definitely consider one of these bad boys!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I see all of these other reviews saying things like "wish it had a better heat sync" and "I've seen 4 core CPUs run faster than this"...well that was probably a $250+ i5. You're paying a little over ONE-HUNDRED dollars for a 6-core processor that is able to be over clocked to 4.2ghz. Quit whining or buy something more expensive. Don't give this CPU a bad rep just because it didn't meet your incredibly high expectations. That's all I have to say. Keep doing what you do, AMD.

2 out of 5 eggseasy to install, it works but...

Pros: the CPU works
stays under 55C with my Cooler Master vortex plus
the CPU works good in my gaming rig paired with a GTX 660 3GB
i have had this CPU for 6 months

Cons: this CPU that i have will not be over clocked to its max at 4.1GHz only at 3.9GHz very disappointed. i currently don't remember the voltage i set it at.

Other Thoughts: i will recommend this product but be sure you buy the warranty just in case you get a potato CPU that overclocks bad.
But other than that its good.

2 out of 5 eggsHardware Accelerated Execution Manager HAXM for android developers not supported on AMD processors

Pros: For the price if your not planning to develop android software it's a good buy

Cons: Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (Intel® HAXM) is a hardware-assisted virtualization engine (hypervisor) that uses Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) to speed up Android* app emulation on a host machine. In combination with Android x86 emulator images provided by Intel and the official Android SDK Manager, Intel HAXM allows for faster Android emulation on Intel VT enabled systems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor !!

Pros: Runs 24/7 as my Computer is on 24/7

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Have to say, these amd Processors are a GREAT buy for the money !! Compared to Intel which is twice the price and does just the same amount of work. I believe you get a Great CPU for the money !! Buying it again for my second Build

5 out of 5 eggsFX6300 wow

Pros: Amazing overclocker, and inexpensive.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: On a cheap gigabyte mobo and an old school arctic freezer pro 7 cooler from an old am3 rig I was able to get this bad boy up to 4.2ghz, that's a 700mhz overclock and it's cool and stable never going over 45c
